Our Seventh Annual Gala will be held on Friday, October 28th at the beautiful Dallas Palms.

The theme this year is Women’s Empowerment, since October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month, and the beneficiary will be Mosaic Family Services and its affiliated charities. October 30th is also the Indian festival of lights, Diwali. The underlying sentiment of the event is “Bring light to someone’s life”.

Charity: Mosaic is a safe haven for survivors of human rights abuses, including human trafficking and domestic violence.

Venue: Dallas Palms is a full-service event venue featuring three spacious ballrooms, each with an accompanying private outdoor garden, conveniently located just north of Dallas in Carrollton, Texas.

Program: Fashionistas and attendees will come together for this one-of-a-kind fundraiser in one of the most unique settings in Dallas – the Dallas Palms.
