2nd Annual Sounds of the Season Gala, benefiting the Dallas Hearing Foundation

For the second year in a row, Significant Events was honored to work with the Dallas Hearing Foundation to produce the Sounds of the Season gala. Guests entered the beautiful and historic venue and ascended the stairs lined with poinsettias and floating candles. At the top of the stairs, was a stunning 5 tier cake designed especially for the gala and its winter wonderland theme. A harp ensemble played during cocktail hour as guests enjoyed flavorful passed hors d’ourves and cocktails and got the chance to bid on over 200 Silent Auction items and purchase raffle tickets for the raffle item valued at over $1,000.00. As the main program began, guests entered the sparkling ballroom with tables bedecked in silver and white linens with lush white floral 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. Blue uplighting and snowflakes and stars on the dramatic ceilings awed the crowd. Dinner was thematic as well, with a 3 course wintry yet comforting meal from our five star caterer. Our emcee for the evening, WFAA’s own Cynthia Izaguirre, kicked off the evening’s entertainment which included a beautiful Nutcracker ballet performance from the Texas Ballet Theater and a melodic and witty set of songs from the Grammy award winning Texas Boys’ Choir. The heart of the evening was the presentation from several children 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 dancing, shopping, and photo favors from our photo station. In the end, over $40,000 was raised for this worthy cause. We can’t wait until next year’s event!
