Black-Tie Event in October Funds GRACE Programs

Aug 02, 2017 09:35AM ● By Dia

Join us for the 14th Annual GRACE Gala on Saturday, October 14 at the Hyatt Regency DFW International Airport. The black-tie event boasts gourmet food and spirits, Silent and Live Auctions and dancing to the music of renowned Emerald City Band.

For three decades, GRACE has been a haven for families facing crisis in Greater Northeast Tarrant County, providing food, clothing, shelter, education and medical care.

The GRACE Gala was conceptualized in 2004 by a dynamic Advisory Board made up of prominent community members. Six months before the first Gala, the event sold out.

Individuals and corporate partners continue to rise to the challenge by sponsoring tables, donating auction items and participating in an event that celebrates the community’s commitment to our neighbors facing hardship.

As the agency’s largest singular fund-raising event, the GRACE Gala has since become known as the premier black-tie event in Northeast Tarrant County. This year the Gala Committee is unveiling cutting edge technology and new features that you can only experience firsthand.

“The GRACE Gala spectacular evening with gourmet food, dancing, entertainment and the best auction packages, but it’s also a time for the community to come together to respond to those in need, “says GRACE Executive Director Shonda Schaefer. “Event proceeds equip us to care for families after job loss, illness, abuse or other emergency threatens a family’s ability to pay bills, feed their children or even keep their home.”

The GRACE Gala, Northeast Tarrant County’s most prestigious black-tie charity event, will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency DFW International Airport. Individual tickets are $325, and a table of ten is $3,000. Sponsorships for ample exposure, preferred seating and exclusive event access begin at $3,500. In-kind sponsorships are also available.
