Our annual Gifting Party serves as a way to kick off Gala season and help get our top-tier Gala Auction in motion. The gifts you donated start the process of helping us raise money that will have a massive impact on our programs and therefore, the surrounding communities. Our organization uses all the funds received from our Gala Auction to help breathe life into programs like Transitional Housing, Community Pantry, and our award winning Clinic.

Attendees loved the delicious food, drinks, and of course the games at Crush It! Virtual Sports Lounge located at 401 W State Hwy 114 in Grapevine. The futuristic facility has fun and unique interactive video games that allow you to play a number of games like home run derby, golf, and even zombie dodgeball with real sporting equipment.

Crush It owner Mike Speets is excited to be a new partner with GRACE.

“I actually met Shonda (GRACE CEO) when her family came in to play at Crush It. We got to talking and I really liked what I learned about GRACE. After I attended the Poker Tournament I knew I wanted to get more involved,” Mike said. “I love the mission, I love that it’s local, and that GRACE helps people in different ways. I’m honored to be a part of it”

We already have some amazing items that you will love bidding on so stay ready and don’t miss your opportunity to participate. This year’s Gala is happening November 6th, at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. We look forward to seeing you there!
