Time is winding down for any Dallas County children’s nonprofit that had hopes of being a 2020 Crystal Charity Ball beneficiary. Applications for the selection process must be in the office (3838 Oak Lawn) on Friday, October 18, by noon. And that doesn’t mean that it must be postmarked on that date. It has to be physically in the office on that day no later than 12 p.m. Emails are not accepted.
Then the selection process gets underway that would make an IRS audit look like an evening stroll along the Katy Trail. After three rounds of review and presentations, the 2020 beneficiaries are selected on Thursday, February 6, and 2020 Chair Tucker Enthoven and her committee of 99 volunteers start the task of raising the funds.
