This weekend was the 16th Annual Bishop’s Gala, an event benefiting the Catholic Charities of Dallas. The evening included cocktails, dinner, an auction, and music by Grammy Award winner Harry Connick Jr.
Catholic Charities of Dallas is an incredible organization. It serves four core areas: strengthening families, alleviating hunger, preventing homelessness, and welcoming the stranger (immigration and refugee programs). The Bishop’s Gala raised funds that will directly benefit programs that assist these core areas for individuals in North Texas.
I am proud to have served on the 2014 Gala Committee alongside many others who dedicated their time to make the event possible. I’d like to extend a special thank you to this year’s Chairs, Colleen and Peter Bowler, who did an outstanding job.
