Join us for the 18th Annual GRACE Gala presented by Classic Chevrolet Fleet and Commercial on Saturday, November 6 at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. Hosted by our Co-Chairs Jessica Cruz and Ana Erwin, this black-tie event boasts gourmet food and spirits, Silent and Live Auctions and dancing to the music of The Walton Stout 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 preparing an extravaganza that must be experienced 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 CEO Shonda Schaefer. “Event proceeds equip us to care for families after job loss, illness, abuse or other emergency situations that threaten a family’s ability to pay bills, feed their children or even keep their home.”

Event proceeds help fund the daily operations at GRACE.
