4th Annual Aging Mind Foundation Gala Shatters Fundraising Records

THE SCENE: The Joule Hotel in Dallas was the scene of the recent Aging Mind Foundation gala, where over 200 of the city’s social elite rubbed elbows during a great evening full of friends, touching tributes and memorable music performances.

THE VIBE: The evening began with cocktail hour where the black-tie crowd mingled and had the opportunity to meet a very special guest on hand for the evening’s festivities – Ashley Campbell, daughter of country music legend Glen Campbell. From there, partygoers adjourned to the ballroom where everyone dined on a multi-course meal during the evening’s program, which included a video highlighting the life of honoree Betty Tatum.

The evening continued with a spirited live auction featuring one-of-a-kind experiences including including a Leisure, Luxury and Arts weekend in London as well as a V-VIP Experience for the 2018 Kentucky Derby. The program concluded with a show-stopping musical performance by Ashley Campbell. After the program, the action moved to the Joule’s rooftop terrace where guests were greeted with champagne hosted by Impeccable Rosé Brut and cocktails by Roxor, and danced the night away to the spins of DJ Jose Guevara.

THE CAUSE: The event, chaired by Cara Owens with Barbara and Don Daseke serving as honorary chairs, raised over $740,000 for the Aging Mind Foundation with this year’s gala proceeds going to the UTSW Medical Center – Center for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases. The Aging Mind Foundation seeks to support and address urgent issues concerning the aging mind including research, treatment, advocacy and education.
