Thank you to our Big Dreams Gala Presenting Sponsor: PepsiCo

Big Dreams

For over 40 years, we have been inspiring families to DREAM BIG. For over 40 years, we have made it our sole mission to build stronger families and stronger communities through education, advocacy, and evidence-based programming.

Honoring Our Ancestors

As we celebrate the impact we have made in the DFW community, we envision that over the next 40 years, we will build a world that is more equitable, healthy, and engaged in the future of the next generation–but we can’t do it without you.

Our Big Dreams Gala occurred
November 3, 2023!

We had a wonderful celebration with record-breaking numbers and honored our ancestors who have passed by celebrating Dia de los Muertos.


We raised over $315,000, all of which will be used to help us continue and expand our programs that support Latino families in North Texas! We could not do this without the support of our donors, sponsors, and supporters – thank you!
