Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas is gearing up for their annual Dell Children’s Gala, Storybook, Saturday January 25th at Austin Convention Center’s Grand Ballroom. Hosted by Laura and Tommy Craddick, Jr., this is the first fundraising occasion of the year for Dell Children’s Medical Center, which in past years have raised more than $1 million to support and maintain its kid-centric atmosphere.
This year’s gala will follow in the theme of child-like whimsy. “Storybook” is a homage to all of the stories and lives the medical center has touched throughout its years of being the premier medical center of Central Texas. Over the years, more than 140,000 injured and sick children have been served by DCMC, and it is fundraisers such as these that give them the chance to touch so many lives.
2014 promises to be a year to remember. With plenty of opportunities to give and to make a difference in the lives of countless children, the gala offers several tiers of ticket prices, from the $2,500 Dell Children’s Gala Package to $50,000 Presenter Packages. Sponsors this year include Austin Area Chevy Dealers, AT&T, Capitol Anesthesiology Association, and more.
The colorful festivities begin at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner and programs from 7:30-10 p.m. Casino night and dancing are from 10-midnight, and if you have purchased tickets that include entrance into the after-party at the Four Seasons, be prepared to party well into the night. And it’s all for a great cause!
