DALLAS – The Concilio, a Dallas nonprofit that builds stronger communities by empowering parents, is hosting its annual fundraiser ‘Inspiring Families to Achieve Big Dreams’ on Thursday, November 12 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event, presented by Target, will be held at 7 for Parties (150 Turtle Creek Blvd., Suite 107, Dallas, TX 75207) in the Design District. Paige Farragut, Senior Vice President of Ticket Sales and Service for the Texas Rangers Baseball Club, is the Event Chair, and Carolyn Carlson, Health Industry Director for Microsoft, is the Silent Auction Chair.
Proceeds from Big Dreams will benefit The Concilio’s parent engagement programs which accelerate change in communities by offering families education, resources, and support to encourage success in education and health.
“As a region, we cannot afford to have any children or families left behind because of gaps in educational achievement or health – the cost is too high. For 34 years The Concilio has specialized in implementing creative solutions for families to address these critical cornerstones of a successful future, beginning with parents, the key to the family,” said Florencia Velasco Fortner, President and CEO of The Concilio.
For the fourth year in a row, Target is the Presenting Sponsor of the event. “At Target, we are committed to serving local communities where we do business,” said Jose Martinez, Property Management Market Leader for Target. “That’s why we are proud to partner with The Concilio as we work to strengthen the North Texas community and enrich the lives of our guests and team members.”
The cocktail event will feature music, dancing, food and drink, as well as a silent auction featuring memorabilia from the Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks; handbags and jewelry; Southwest Airlines roundtrip tickets; hotel stays at the Omni Dallas; and more. Tickets to Big Dreams are $60 per person and can be purchased at www.theconcilio.org.
