EVENT: DE BOULLE X ROLEX 24 EVENT
WHERE: RIVER OAKS DISTRICT
About 100 guests were welcomed to the de Boulle’s private party at River Oaks District to celebrate the recent victory of Nick Boulle and his team, James French, Kyle Masson and Pato O’Ward, at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The team took top honors in the Prototype Challenge (PC) Class at the grueling 24-hour sports car endurance race. Nick Boulle, the 27-year-old son of Denis and Karen Boulle—of de Boulle, an independent jewelry salon in Dallas and Houston—anchored in the final segment and cruised to victory. Boulle made history being part of the youngest group of drivers to win the 24 Hours of Daytona and the first authorized ROLEX dealer to win the prestigious endurance race.
Nick Boulle, James French, Kyle Masson and Pato O’Ward were on hand at the event and donned their special Rolex Daytona timepieces that were awarded to race winners. Race cars were also on display outside the salon storefront. DJ Seneca kept the crowd entertained while guests sipped on Patron cocktails such as Boulle’s Blood Orange Margarita and noshed on passed bites of mini short rib grilled cheese sandwiches, petite buffalo chicken tacos with celery root slaw, checkered flag cookies and peanut butter truffles splashed with artful edible
red and silver paint.
