National Breast Cancer Foundation’s Women of Hope Luncheon

The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s Women of Hope Luncheon honors patients, caregivers, and donors in the breast cancer community who are an inspiration to us all, and we were proud to partner with them to produce their annual Women of Hope fundraising luncheon. Guests entered on a custom pink carpet to “be seeded” at the garden inspired table assignment display. Guests first enjoyed passed hors d’oeurves and a pink signature cocktail while walking the across the bridge of hope and learning more about the award nominees via decorative displays. Silent auction items, photo station opportunities, and fellowship began the event until we moved guests into the beautiful ballroom. Tables were decorated with ivory linens, shades of pink florals, gold chargers, and crossback chairs. A circular arch with more beautiful blooms framed the stage. A delicious plated meal was served followed by desserts in partnership with sponsor Sprinkles cupcakes. Awards were presented to women of hope along with moving tributes before our keynote speaker and breast cancer survivor Joan Lunden took the stage! It was a truly inspiring and beautiful day of hope for this generous organization!

Dallas Hearing Foundation’s 9th Annual Fundraiser

For the 9th year, Significant Events has been proud to produce the Dallas Hearing Foundation’s Annual Fundraiser! This year we continued with our interactive, fun, and creative event design and set-up. This year’s theme focused on the range of emotions that our recipients feel once receiving the gift of hearing from DHF: Joy, Love, Empowerment, Success, Determination, Resolve, and Faith.

All guest tables were designed around one of these emotions! Guests loved seeing all of the amazing tablescapes. Guests enjoyed a gourmet plated dinner and desserts. Guests began the evening perusing the Silent Auction and enjoying the photo station. A brief presentation from DHF’s leadership as well as stories from children who live with profound hearing loss and whom DHF helps on a daily basis gave a moving presentation. Throughout the night, guests were also able to try their hands at Black Jack, Roulette, Craps, and Texas Hold ‘Em, with all proceeds benefitting our great cause. A live auction and dancing capped off the evening. We love working with the Dallas Hearing Foundation year after year!

Hearts & Heroes Fundraising Gala benefiting Health Services of North Texas

Significant Events was honored to have the chance to work with Health Services of North Texas to raise money for their cause of providing quality health care to needy individuals in North Texas. Our formal gala was held on the campus of University of North Texas. Guests started the evening by shopping the silent auction and sampling cocktails and hors d’ourves and enjoying the sounds of a jazz trio. The ballroom was decorated in tones of black and gold with lovely gold and ivory centerpieces, black linens, and red and gold napkins, which our staff helped to secure for HSNT as an in-kind donation. As our multi-course plated meal began, both a choir and a musical theatre group performed for our guests’ entertainment.

Dallas Hearing Foundation’s 6th Annual Fundraiser: “DHF has your Ticket to the World of Sound!”

For the 6th year in a row, Significant Events has been proud to produce the Dallas Hearing Foundation’s Annual Fundraiser! This year, we decided for the first time to change the format of the annual event to one that was more interactive, fun, and creative than in our previous years. Frontiers of Flight Museum was the location of choice for our global/travel themed design. Fifteen of Dallas’s best floral designers each selected a country and designed a table after that country, which was so beautiful and interesting to peruse. Food stations were global in nature reflecting cuisine from around the world. Two bars provided themed beverages: one a California wine bar and the other a Texas Beverage Bar. Our dessert table was a thing of beauty and deliciousness as 6 area cake designers created travel themed confections! Guests began the evening perusing the Silent Auction and enjoying both the photo station and the Henna artist providing temporary “tattoos”! A brief presentation from DHF’s leadership as well as stories from children who live with profound hearing loss and whom DHF helps on a daily basis gave a moving presentation. As guests began partaking in dinner, the casino games opened as well. Guests were able to try their hands at Black Jack, Roulette, Craps, and Texas Hold ‘Em, with all proceeds benefitting our great cause. A live auction and dancing capped off the evening. Guests exclaimed it was our best event ever!

5th Annual Sounds of the Season Fundraising Gala benefiting the Dallas Hearing Foundation

Our gala celebrated its 5th year in 2013, and it has been our honor to produce it each year! 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 ballroom which had a fresh design this year with a rustic Christmas look – gold linens and chargers, centerpieces of red and white floral paired with green foliage and pinecones. 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 complete with a festive dessert. Our emcee for the evening, NBC–DFW’s own Lindsey Wilcox kicked off the evening’s entertainment which included a fun and festive Christmas dance performance from a Dallas based senior tap company. 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 $48,000 for their valuable work!
