According to Mission Olé 2015 Chair Greg Nieberding,
“Trinity River Mission — a volunteer-based community learning center that promotes literacy, encourages academic success, and develops effective life skills among disadvantaged youth — will host its 16thannual Mission Olé on Thursday, October 29, 2015 from 7:00–10:00 p.m. at 3015 at Trinity Groves in West Dallas. This year’s event will incorporate a new theme, “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) and will include cocktails, authentic Mexican cuisine, Lotería, which is Mexican bingo, entertainment and more. Partygoers are encouraged to wear Dia de los Muertos-inspired costumes in celebration of this long-standing holiday.
“We hope the theme not only creates a fun evening for TRM donors, but also provides an opportunity to make a deeper connection with both TRM and the clients they serve in West Dallas, who are 98% Hispanic. Many of the agency’s clients often say that Trinity River Mission is a ‘second home and family’; the familial atmosphere of Dia de los Muertos allows us the opportunity to invite Mission Olé guests to be a part of the TRM family as well.
“Some of TRM’s clients will also get in on the fun by working with local artist Sal Barron to create many of the decorative items associated with Dia de los Muertos over the summer that will then be used at Mission Olé.
“Tickets for Mission Olé are $175 each and sponsorships begin at $1,000. To purchase tickets or sponsorships, please visit www.missionole.com or contact Michelle Mora-Lopez at 214.744.6774 ext. 109 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
