The 2023 Vine And Dine is getting down to the wire for Ability Connection’s fundraiser Thursday, April 6, at Arlington Hall. Co-Chairs Debbie and Jim Francis and Sharon and Mike McCullough just reported that only two sponsorship levels remain — $7,500 and $20,000.
As for the reservations, they’re still coming in but the caterer needs the final headcount by Monday!
Shouldn’t be a surprise, since the Francises and McCulloughs have arranged to honor the Meredith and Jack Woodworth Family and salute the Ability Connection’s Members of the Women’s Guild with special recognition.
As for the live auction that has become a mainstay for the fundraiser, auctioneer Dean McCurry will offer such packages as two different golf excursions (Dallas National and Lajitas in Big Bend), an exciting dog adoption and training package, a dinner by Neiman Marcus’ Executive Chef Kevin Garvin and a NorthPark Center package including valet parking, personal shopping, and generous gift certificate to Eataly.
Still another highlight of the evening will be the announcement of Ability Connection’s move to a new location.
Originally known as United Cerebral Palsy of Metropolitan Dallas, Ability Connection is celebrating 70 years of service and today serves more than 900 Texans with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
