Despite the COVID-19 cases seeming to be on the downswing, the North Texas fundraising events are still taking hits… and this one is a big one. Here is today’s update:
- Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala scheduled for Saturday, September 12
As reported before, all the area nonprofits are experiencing dramatic challenges with the arts feeling like they’re on the Titanic and there are no lifeboats left. But North Texas is not a boat that can be sunk by a pesky virus.
Hopefully, the longtime and newbie supporters will step up and come through especially for the arts. Such talents as Van Cliburn, LeAnn Rimes, Margo Jones, Erykah Badu, Kathy Bates, Sly Stone, Aaron Spelling, Norah Jones, Boz Scaggs, Tommy Lee Jones, Usher, Kelly Clarkson, Willis Alan Ramsey, Tommy Lee Jones, Selena Gomez, T-Bone Walker, Peri Gilpin, Terry Southern, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Vanilla Ice, Roger Horchow, Jonas brothers (Joe, Kevin and Nick), Sharon Tate, Demi Lovato, Michael Nesmith, Jayne Mansfield, Trini Lopez, Jimmie Vaughan, Lisa Loeb, Simpson sisters (Ashlee and Jessica), Meat Loaf, Sam the Sham, Stephen Stills, Stephen Tobolowsky, Jimmie Vaughan, Wilson brothers (Luke and Owen), Robin Wright Penn and many others have all cut their teeth in these parts.
The next crop of creative talent is just waiting in the wings and needs your support.
