Beautiful Hotel Vin will serves as the site for the GRACE Gala VIP Party

The new and elegant Hotel Vin will welcome more than 150 guests to the GRACE Gala VIP Party on Thursday, October 21—the festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. But you can only get in by becoming a sponsor of the GRACE Gala!

The event is presented by Sewell BMW of Grapevine and will honor Gala sponsors and volunteer leadership. Gala Bronze sponsorships and up offer VIP Party invitations as part of the benefit package.

With the GRACE Gala only a few weeks away on November 6, the VIP Party will take a moment and thank the many sponsors, volunteers, committee members, and others who bring the Gala to life, and express gratitude for raising much-needed funds for client services and programs.

The VIP Party is also a great chance to meet and chat with others who have a heart for those GRACE serves. The fellowship and networking is second-to-none with the VIP Party guest list full of generous, forward-looking people with ties to local companies, large corporations, and other organizations.

The GRACE Gala is the single-largest fundraising event for GRACE during the year, and funds raised support all GRACE services including Emergency Assistance, Clothing and Food, Children’s Programs, Transitional Housing, Senior Services, and the Community Clinic.

GRACE Chief Executive Officer Shonda Schaefer will express the importance of the Gala campaign season, and recognize those, like Gala Co-Chairs Ana Erwin and Jessica Cruz, for their hard work, stamina, and inspiring leadership.

The highlight of the evening will be the announcement of the annual Angel of GRACE award winner. The Angel of GRACE is given each year to the person or organization who exemplifies GRACE’s mission of stewardship, compassion, and guidance toward self-sufficiency. The Angel of GRACE will be announced publicly at the Gala.

The VIP Party is open to sponsors of the Gala. Sponsorships begin at $4,000 and include a table of ten for the Gala on November 6, plus many promotional and public relations benefits. For information about sponsorships contact Mark Woolverton or visit
