On April 8, about 150 members of The Trinity Trust Foundation’s Rat Pack crossed the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge into West Dallas for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at Mary McDermott Cook’s home affectionately nicknamed “DumpTop.” Cook, The Trinity Trust board chair, said that the area used to be an illegal dump site, so the nickname stuck as they removed tires, debris and more when she was building the home. The Bill Booziotis custom-designed home has views of the Santiago Calatrava bridges, including the Margaret McDermott Bridge (I-30) currently under construction, and the downtown Dallas skyline. “Breathtaking,” “amazing views,” and “I didn’t even know about this area” were some of the comments from the guests.
