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, May 25. 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.

This event is graciously hosted by Gala Auction Chairs Anna Sheehan, Melissa Pritchett on behalf of the Auction Committee, and sponsored by our friends at Brio Tuscan Grille.

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 generations 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.

Also, note that our Gala is on October 22, so please be sure that any offers expire well after the Gala.

The 2016 Gala will be held on Saturday, October 22 at the Irving Convention Center.  Tickets are $325, or a table of ten for $3,000. Sponsorships are also available. For more information on sponsorship exposure, contact Director of Development Mark Woolverton.
