Women of the Year:
Individual tickets, begin at $250. Sponsorships and underwriting are available.
: Proceeds from the Gala benefit two beneficiaries: The Child Life Program at Children’s Medical Center and the International Education Program of the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth.
The Child Life Program’s primary goal is to minimize the impact of illness on a child’s normal growth and emotional and cognitive development. This involves establishing supportive relationships with patients and families and providing them with developmentally-appropriate information that helps them prepare for, understand and cope with their healthcare experiences.
The International Education Program (IEP) at World Affairs seeks to educate students and teachers on how international events affect their lives, their communities, and their country. The goal is to empower students to become effective, active citizens and leaders in the global community. This program has impacted more than 700,000 students since its inception in 2004.
