According to Dallas Women’s Foundation’s 31st Annual Luncheon Co-Chairs Joyce Goss and Selwyn Rayzor,
“The past few weeks have been tragic and eye-opening for our community. In these challenging times, a positive has been the people throughout Dallas who have come together to work towards unification. And we have seen our shared spaces become memorials, from the Dallas Police Department to the skyline featuring the Omni Dallas and Reunion Tower.
“Art has a powerful way of illuminating what matters to us, as individuals and as a community.
“We believe that we should all share our hopes, fears and stories, so that the people around us can not only make our community better, but help us to lead better lives.
“The interweaving of art and community building, and the unique role of women in building community, will be celebrated at Dallas Women’s Foundation’s 31st Annual Luncheon, presented by U.S. Trust. We are proud to be Co-Chairs of this event, with the support of our Honorary Chair Kaleta Doolin. Together, we celebrate the opportunity to present our keynote speaker, Candy Chang, an artist and activist that uses the activation of public spaces around the world to connect, reflect and nurture the health of our communities.
“Dallas Women’s Foundation’s Annual Luncheon raises funds to support the Foundation’s work in research, grantmaking and advocacy on the issues facing women and girls. They have been doing this for over 30 years, granting more than $32 million dollars to date, with nearly half of that being granted just since 2012. When we look across North Texas, it is evident that its greatest problems – poverty, access to healthcare, affordable housing and childcare – disproportionately affect women and their children.
“We hope you will join us on Friday, October 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Hilton Anatole, Chantilly Ballroom. Luncheon sponsorships are available, ranging from $3,500 to $25,000; individual tickets are available at $500 to $1,000.
“This annual event has a long history of being a sell-out, and it is our goal to do that once again, and at the same time inspire our community to come together to catalyze even greater change for women and girls in North Texas and beyond.
