It has been an honor producing the Sounds of the Season Fundraising Gala benefiting the Dallas Hearing Foundation for the 4th year in a row! During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed flavorful passed hors d’ourves and cocktails and got the chance to bid on over 100 Silent Auction items via our electronic bidding system. As the main program began, guests entered the sparkling ballroom with tables bedecked in silver and white linens with lush silver and white centerpieces. Each table was named after a Dallas Hearing Foundation recipient and contained a picture of the corresponding recipient and his/her story of living with hearing loss. Guests enjoyed a delicious three course meal from the hotel’s noted chef. Our emcee for the evening, NBC-DFW’s own Lindsey Wilcox kicked off the evening’s entertainment which included a fun and festive Rockette’s style Christmas dance from the Tyler Junior College Apache Belles as well as a moving performance from a cellist from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The heart of the evening was the presentation from several children and parents living with hearing loss who showed us how their lives had been substantially improved through the work of the Dallas Hearing Foundation. As dinner concluded, guests enjoyed a live auction, dancing, a wine pull, and photo favors from our photo station. In the end, this great organization raised $45,000 for their valuable work!

"This event touched my heart deeply with every family shared their testimonies, especially the very last one. I almost had tears in my eyes. Hope it will continue to spread the great testimonies next year. Everything at the event is perfect with flowers, linens, and lighting, even the Christmas tree. Beautiful decorations. It's the best Christmas spirit I ever experienced. I work hard and many hours in the Deaf Ministries, so this is very unique and a big treat for my and my daughter."
