One of the ultimate great dishes served up at a fundraising luncheon is a big buckaroo challenge. And that’s what just happened at The Family Place’s 21st Texas Trailblazer Awards Luncheon in the Hilton Anatole’s Chantilly Ballroom.
Highland Capital Management’s Co-Founder/President James Dondero just announced that “the firm has awarded a $1-million challenge grant to help The Family Place raise the final $2.8 million for its Legacy Campaign in the next six months.”
The grant will match 50% of any funds raised for the capital campaign’s goal of $16.5M that The Family Place’s Paige Flink and her team have been working on.
Ah, now you know why Paige and Luncheon Co-Chairs Lisa and Marvin Singleton had such happy faces at last night’s patron party.
More about that party and today’s luncheon in the days ahead. But did want you to know of about the delicious challenge that was just served up.
