You are cordially invited to help us kickoff to Gala season at our GRACE Gala Gifting Party. The Gifting Party helps to spread the word around the community about the GRACE Gala and the auction, all of which are fun for everyone who participates.

We are incredibly thrilled to be hosting this well-liked event again this year, making it even bigger and better than before, and what better way to do so than to hold it at Crush It! Sports Lounge right here in Grapevine.

Basha Ramsey, GRACE’s Special Events Manager, predicts that this year’s Gifting Party will be a successful night. “While we continue to work on the Gala, the GRACE Gala committee and especially the Auction Subcommittee, have done an excellent job preparing for the returning Gifting Party and I can guarantee that this will be an outstanding time. We are so excited.”

On Wednesday, August 31st, from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm, Crush It! Virtual Sports Lounge in Grapevine will host the GRACE Gala Gifting Party. Entry to this special event requires a donation of a gift item with a minimum retail value of $100, which will be offered at the Gala’s auction to raise money for GRACE programs.

Some examples of 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 our 2022 Gala Co-Chairs Sheila and Jason Ridley, and the owners and operators of Crush It! Sports Lounge in Grapevine.
