THE SCENE: The Haas Moto Museum & Sculpture Gallery in Dallas was the recent setting of the ReuNight event for The Family Place. One of the first public events held in this grand space, it featured a seated dinner and a live auction that attracted 175 of Dallas’ most notable philanthropists and Sociables.
THE VIBE: The Moto-chic crowd began the evening with a cocktail hour where guests engaged in lively conversation while enjoying the unique mix of automotive marvels presented in a sculptural context. The evening’s revelers then headed to their seats for the evening’s program.
As patrons heard from event VIPs about the positive impact The Family Place has on the Dallas community, they were treated to a delectable multi-course meal created by Sasseta, Wheelhouse and Joule Catering. Each course was expertly paired with the delicious Hall Wines. The festivities were capped off with a spirited live auction which included a tailor-made One&Only Resort trip to East Africa, a Moto Museum package, and a piece by world renowned artist Adam Ball.
THE CAUSE: The event, chaired by Joyce and Kenny Goss with James Dondero serving as an honorary chair, raised a net amount of over $400,000 for The Family Place. As the largest family violence service agency in Texas, The Family Place provides a holistic approach to family violence while providing a clear path for families to progress from fear to safety.
