Despite last Friday’s ice challenges closing down schools, companies and airports across North Texas, the Crystal Charity Ball committee gathered at the Arts District Mansion for a general meeting and the final presentation by the 2022 beneficiary finalists.
2022 CCB Chair Susan Farris and Beneficiary Selection Chair Suzy Gekiere have just revealed the Dallas County children non-profits that will make up the class of 2022 CCB beneficiaries.
The eight organizations that will receive grants from CCB include:
- The Agape Clinic for the expansion of comprehensive pediatric care — $550,000
- Baylor Oral Health Foundation for Texas A&M College of Dentistry special needs dentistry clinic — $1,602,596
- Behind Every Door for Cedar Crest Community Center — $692,244

- United To Learn for doubling literacy rates across 21 DISD Elementary Schools in South Dallas — $1,206,022
The selection of the recipients was made after months of research, interviewing and presentations by the CCB committee of 100.
As a result, a goal of $7,180,505 will be raised in the months ahead thanks to generous philanthropists, foundations and companies.
Since its founding in 1953, CCB has distributed more than $165M to charities helping Dallas children.
