According to 2017 Crystal Charity Ball Chair Pam Perella,
For the past sixty-five years The Crystal Charity Ball has been a driving force for positive change in the lives of children in Dallas County. Since 1952, we have never wavered in our commitment to make life better for children, ages birth through eighteen, in a variety of areas including education, medical care, social services and the arts.
Throughout the years it has been the generosity of and partnership with individuals, corporations and foundation that has made it possible to provide significant financial support to more than 140 non-profit agencies serving children in our community.
After a diligent four-month vetting process, our membership selected eight agencies as 2017 beneficiaries including Autism Treatment Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star, Children’s Medical Center Foundation, Dallas Holocaust Museum and Center for Education and Tolerance, Hunger Busters, Presbyterian Communities and Services Foundation, Rainbow Days and Santa Clara of Assisi Catholic Academy. We are actively raising funds on their behalf at this time.
The Crystal Charity Ball Committee strongly supports the work of each of the 2017 beneficiaries and their commitment to meeting the critical needs of children in Dallas. Please partner with us to make a significant difference in the lives of children in the Dallas community, replacing expectations of despair with expectations of hope.
