Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar and his wife Dara Hegar will be in Dallas on Saturday, September 26, at the Morton Meyerson. The reason? 2015 Dallas Symphony Orchestra AT&T Co-Chairs Jennifer and Coley Clark and Katherine and Key Coker have just revealed that the Hegars will be the honorary co-chairs for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra fundraiser.
Before being elected to the comptroller position last November, Glenn was a member of the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate and is a sixth-generation Texan.
“The Dallas Symphony is a cornerstone of the cultural life in Dallas and throughout North Texas,” said Glenn. “Dara and I are honored to be a part of this event and to help raise money for their important mission to share music and music education in our great state.”
The fundraiser that is the first official black-tie event of the season will also be AT&T’s 15th year as the title sponsor.
According to Dallas-based AT&T Senior VP Holly Reed, “We are pleased to return as title sponsor of the DSO AT&T Gala for the 15th year and to support the DSO and their role in the cultural vibrancy of Dallas.”
If your budget won’t allow the full-blown night of cocktailing, dining, concerting with maestro Jaap van Zweden and violinist Pinchas Zukerman and after-party, then consider just the concert and after-party with DJ Lucy Wrubel conducting the music that’s only $99. OK, so that may be more than a Saturday night movie including popcorn, but come on. In addition to a live performance with Jaap and Pinchas and the after-party with open bar, you’ll get a gander at all the incredible fashions … and this one really brings them out!
