Presented by HollyFrontier Corporation

Saturday, April 27, 2019

Join us in empowering young women to break the generational cycles of abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness by supporting our 2019 Gala, Auction & Casino Night at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel on April 27, 2019. Our signature event brings together over 500 friends for dinner, dancing, casino games, live and silent auctions, and the prestigious 15th Annual Ebby Awards presentation.

This event is the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts and we are very grateful to our sponsors who make the evening possible.  Over the past 5 years, this event has raised over $2 Million to help young women in need.

Honorary Chairs Mr. and Mrs. Patrick J. Burns, Sr.
