Exciting news for the 2024 GRACE Gala! It will be coming back home in Grapevine for its 21st year. The “angels among us” Gala will be on Saturday, November 2, 2024 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center. Equally as exciting is that this year’s chairs are Theresa and Justin Mason.

“This year is going to be very special,” says Chief Executive Officer Rebecca Cox. “We are honored and excited to bring the GRACE Gala home to Grapevine. I am especially excited to be working with our 2024 Chairs, Theresa and Justin Mason.”

Theresa and Justin Mason are no strangers to the Grapevine community as they have lived and worked in Grapevine since 2012. Theresa has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2004 and has started, sold and continues to run multiple businesses including two painting companies, a non-profit, a real estate business, music company and private Montessori style school. Justin Mason grew up listening to a variety of music genres but was always partial to country music. In 2013, he taught himself how to play guitar and put a band together. Over the last 10 years, he has released multiple albums, played many notable venues and enjoys singing and playing country music around the area.

The Masons began a real estate brokerage firm in 2012 and merged their company with Magnolia Realty, founded by Chip and Joanna Gaines, in 2022. In 2021, Justin and Theresa co-founded (along with another couple) a small private school in Grapevine and are in their third year of operation. Vine Academy: An Acton Affiliate is a Montessori style school, equipping young Learners to discover God’s calling for their lives that will change the world.

The Masons are the proud parents of three amazing children ages 9, 7, and 6 are active in their church, St. Francis of Assisi Grapevine, and in the Grapevine community. Theresa served as the Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce in 2018, served as an alternate member of the City of Grapevine’s Planning and Zoning Commission from 2013-2017, and is an active member of the Women’s Division of the Grapevine Chamber. Justin has had the opportunity to play multiple times at the Grapevine festivals, and has donated his time and talents at many charity events and GRACE fundraisers.

“We feel blessed to live such a fulfilling life, “says Theresa Mason, GRACE Gala Co-Chair. “Both Justin and I love Grapevine and are longtime supporters of GRACE, volunteer as a family where we can, and are honored to be co-chairs of the 2024 GRACE Gala”.
