You’re invited to help us celebrate the upcoming Gala with live music, hors d’oeuvres and bottomless champagne during our annual Gala Gifting Party, Wednesday, June 14 at Brio Tuscan Grille in Southlake. Entry to this exclusive party is an item donation valued at a minimum of $100, which is auctioned at the Gala to fund GRACE programs.

100% of all Gala proceeds advance the mission of GRACE by providing program funding throughout the year. In-kind donations of goods and services not only highlight local businesses with attendants, our Gala Auction generates a large portion of event revenue.

Some examples of in-kind donations include, but are not limited to:

  • Any kind of tickets – concerts, sporting events, races – the sky is the limit.
  • Autographed memorabilia.
  • A vacation home you would allow to be auctioned off for a week/weekend stay.
  • Airlines miles.
  • Gift certificates to restaurants, movies, hotels, home or health services, or retail stores.
  • Cash Donations.

This event is graciously hosted by Gala Auction Chairs Ana Erwin and Allison Domanic on behalf of the Auction Committee, and sponsored by our friends at Brio Tuscan Grille.
