According to 2016 Billiard Ball Co-Chairs Laura and Dennis Moon,
“Since 1965, Boys And Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas (BGCD) has served as the voice and lead advocate for Dallas area youth. In 2015, as we celebrated our 50th year anniversary, BGCD grew from 14 Club sites to 31 sites, and from providing services to 6,000 youth, to supporting over 7,500. To celebrate the journey toward fifty more years, we invite you to join us at The Billiard Ball: Solids and Stripes Soiree on Saturday, November 12, at the Hilton Anatole.
“Funds raised by The Billiard Ball will support the development of BGCD’s unique and vital programming, as well as the rapid growth of Club sites located near families and youth that benefit from our services the most. To help ensure a fabulous evening, we are asking for your support. A fantastic party has been planned featuring a cocktail reception, seated dinner, live auction, dancing to the Georgia Bridgewater Orchestra and of course, billiards.
“We are thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful event as this year’s chairmen. Also, it gives us great pleasure to announce Helen and Clint W. Murchison III as our 2016 Lifetime Achievement Honorees. They have been longtime Boys And Girls Clubs advocates and we are pleased that they continue to help with our mission.
“Joining us in this great cause are Host Committee members Lee Bailey, Donna Bajaj, Lee Baldwin, Ann Hoose, Eric Johnson, Sharon Jones, Maggie Kipp, April and Russ Lambert, Julian Leaver, Barb and Gerald Louviere, Greg Nieberding, Susan and John Piot, Sandy Schwan, Carol Seay, Holly and Jim Trester, Rachel and Chris Trowbridge, Day and George Watson, Kameron and Court Westcott and Katherine Wynne.
“Boys And Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas provides after-school, outcome-driven programs for almost 2,200 Dallas youth daily. We need your help as we continue to serve these youth.
