After having to cancel its annual fundraiser like so many others, Dallas Junior Forum members rallied to make their 2021 fall luncheon “Imagine the Possibilities!” and fundraiser even more successful for its beneficiaries.
As DJF President Julie Crowley explained, “During the past 18 months of the pandemic, we recognized more than ever that support for our agencies remains critical as they face so many new challenges.”
Luncheon Chair Michelle Mew has arranged for the event to take place on Tuesday, October 26, at Northwood Club and to include a panel discussion of DJF agencies (Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, Hope’s Door New Beginning Center, Juliette Fowler Communities, The Ebby House, Network of Community Ministries and The Family Place) moderated by past DJF President/current Board Member Julie Sheridan.
According to Michelle, “This year, we are thrilled to bring our members, agency representatives and supporters together for this great event.”
In addition to the luncheon and panel, DJF VP of Development Bonnie Cameron and her committee have arranged for a raffle and a silent auction. The silent auction will be open for online bidding starting Wednesday, October 20, featuring “shopping sprees, gift cards, dream trips to the Italian wine country and Mexico and Caribbean resorts and entertainment packages including tickets to the 2022 US Open Golf.”
Raffle tickets are available online for the packages that include $1,000 in NorthPark Gold, a year of NorthPark valet parking and a private chef-prepared dinner party for 10 at Ventana.
Luncheon tickets are going for $150 and sponsorships start at $500.
For 40+ years, Dallas Junior Forum has been “creating greater interest among women in civic, educational and philanthropic endeavors in the North Texas community through volunteer work focused on children, families and the elderly.”
