Whether you are new to the GRACE Gala or are a Gala patron, the Gala Gifting Party on Thursday, June 13, is the perfect opportunity to be a part of the excitement.  2019 Gala Chairs, Brent and Kimberly Tipps, founders and owners of the BoomerJack’s restaurants, will be hosting the event to kick off the Gala season.

You’re invited to help us celebrate!  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.  Each year, we are blown away with the outpouring of irresistible auction items donated by the generous members of our GRACE family.

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, but our Gala Auction generates a large portion of event revenue.

The party begins at 5:00 p.m. with a menu specially crafted for our guests.  Come enjoy the fellowship and fare, then stick around to bask in the fabulous patio weather and do some taste testing of the delicious BoomerJack’s menu!


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.


The 2019 Gala will be held on Saturday, October 26 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.  Tickets are $375, or a table of ten for $3,500.  Sponsorships are also available.  For more information on sponsorship exposure, contact Chief Development Officer, Mark Woolverton.

Also, please note that your donation offers should expire well after the date of the Gala.
