The second annual GenR: Dallas Force for Change party was a huge success! A crowd of more than 150 GenR members and IRC supporters gathered at AMS Pictures in Dallas to celebrate and raise money to help the IRC Dallas deliver on our common mission. The unique atmosphere of the AMS studios provided for a once in a lifetime event that will be tough to top! Attendees were able to tour the amazing building and enjoy great local food provided by some of Dallas’s favorite restaurants.
Overall, it was an impressive event for our young GenR chapter that has shown strong growth over the last two years. GenR: Dallas members along with our generous individual donors and corporate sponsors, including AMS Pictures, Oportun, TripAdvisor, Airbnb, Boston Beer Company, The Slow Bone, Nordstrom NorthPark Center, Cykochik, Nothing Bundt Cakes, HotPoppin, Fluffpop, Jacob Walker, Shaun Crawford, All I C Media, and Live Love Pop raised more than $179,000! What an amazing accomplishment!
GenR: Dallas would like to thank AMS Pictures for donating their space for the event as well as Heritage Auctions for providing auction services for the second straight year. It has been an exciting beginning for the GenR: Dallas group and if the trend holds, next year’s event will be even bigger! Thanks and congratulations go out to everyone who had a hand in helping to organize, set up, and work the event. We couldn’t do it without such a great team!
