Dallas Tiffany Circle Chair 2016-2017
Marilyn Porter has been actively involved in a number of charities that serve the Dallas community including board leadership at the Family Place and ArtReach, and volunteer service to the Dallas Museum of Art and Genesis Women's Shelter. Marilyn has been an American Red Cross ambassador, a volunteer and distinguished donor for nearly two decades. She is poised to take one of the organization's premier volunteer leadership roles as the Chair of the Tiffany Circle in Dallas, an elite group of women philanthropic leaders who passionately advance the mission and funding of the American Red Cross.
Professionally, Marilyn pursued both oncology and pulmonary specialties as a registered nurse at Presbyterian Hospital. She later transferred into a field management position in the pharmaceutical industry with BASF Corporation.
As Marilyn served her community and pursued her career, her greatest joy has been raising her family. Marilyn and husband Biggs have been married for 30 years and share two children, Wesley and Caitlin, who are accomplished in their own right with degrees from St. Mark's, Hockaday, Vanderbilt, Duke, George Washington and University of Chicago. In the spring, Marilyn and Biggs were delighted to welcome their first grand-daughter, Mora!
The Porters reside in Preston Hollow where Biggs serves as the Chairman of the Board for the American Red Cross DFW Chapter and Executive Vice President and CFO of Fluor Corporation.
Please join me in welcoming Marilyn Porter as our incoming Tiffany Circle Dallas 2016-2017 Chair!
