There is no reality show that could hold a whisper compared to this past week. From pandemic to politics, the world seemed to be suffering a dizzying migraine. However, the North Texas nonprofits were continuing to amaze even skeptics, maneuvering to do their best as 2021 began.
A year ago at this time, the calendars were like a sumptuous buffet of events with high hopes of the fundraising days ahead. But how quickly lipstick was replace by masks and ballrooms filled with hundreds of supporters were replaced by computer monitor/cellphone screen get-togethers.
Here is an update of North Texas events that have adapted to COVID-19 restrictions:
- Dallas Symphony Orchestra League’s 2021 Presentation Ball
- National Council of Jewish Women Greater Dallas Section’s 108th Birthday Luncheon, originally scheduled for the Westin Galleria Hotel on Thursday, January 21
- The Stewpot Alliance’s Soup’s On! Luncheon on Thursday, February 25
- Bryan’s House’s Pathways To Inclusion Luncheon originally scheduled at Belo Mansion for Wednesday, April 7, is rescheduled for Wednesday, September 22
Please remember that while these ain’t the good old days, the charitable needs of the good old days have only increased with greater needs among those affected by the past 10 months.
