Appetite for Advocacy is on a roll. Luncheon Co-Chairs Paula Richmond and Megan Steinbach have the ninth annual fundraiser for Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center hitting all the bases. For the Tuesday, April 26 event at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel, they’ve locked down University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work research professor Brené Brown. In addition to her 2010 TEDx Houston talk — The Power of Vulnerability — ranking as “one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world,” she’s scored three New York Times #1 bestsellers (“Rising Strong”, “Daring Greatly” and “The Gifts of Imperfection”).
And then there is the raffle that Paula and Megan have arranged. It ain’t no toaster. It’s a Park Place Motorcars Dallas all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC300W. This nifty mid-size SUV is just perfect for carpool duty, transporting bikes and arriving at a swank, black-tie affair. The raffle tickets are going for $100 per with a limit of 1,500 being sold.
And now for the not-so-good news. Tickets for the luncheon are tight. According to DCAC’s Jana Parker, “With regards to ticket prices, currently, due to the popularity of Brené, we have early release tickets available at $500 each. If space allows, we will open up general admission tickets at $175 closer to the event. Table sales start at $1750; so, a good option is to host a table and find 9 others to join.”
In other words, get your buds together, buy a table and grab a handful of raffle tickets.
