After a thorough vetting of the 2018 beneficiaries, the Crystal Charity Ball committee boarded a bus on the morning of Thursday, February 15. They weren’t going to Oklahoma to gamble. Rather, they were visiting the eight Dallas children’s nonprofits (After-School All-Stars, Booker T. Washington High School, Boys And Girls Club Of Greater Dallas, Buckner Children And Family Services, Friends Of The Dallas Public Library, Mosaic Family Services, Nexus Recovery Center and Ronald McDonald House Of Dallas) that will receive more than $6.5M from their efforts this year.
During their tour, they saw students honing their artistic talents and vacant lots that will blossom into centers of safety and education. They learned how after-school and summer programs serve as turning points for low-income students and about a facility in need of more room for families with children going through medical treatments.
At the end of the day as they disembarked the bus, they undertook their next step to provide the funding to make those projects possible.
