On Saturday, October 15th, the annual GRACE Gala “Angels Among Us” was held at the Irving Convention Center in Las Colinas. This is an annual event and auction to raise money for GRACE (Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange). In case you are not familiar with GRACE, their mission is as follows: As a steward of God’s blessings and resources in our community, GRACE demonstrates compassion for those less fortunate by providing assistance to individuals and families in crisis and guidance toward self-sufficiency.
The GRACE Gala proved to be a wonderful event. Mike Snyder of NBC 5 fame hosted the event. The music, which was great, was performed by the band Professor D. The highlight of the night was easily the live auction. Energy and enthusiasm roared through the Irving Convention Center as bidders made offers for glorious vacations, hunting trips, use of a private jet, a Taylor Swift guitar and more. All of these were auctioned off for the benefit of GRACE.
There was also a live raffle where one lucky guest was awarded a 2011 Chevrolet Convertible Camaro courtesy of the Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine.
We were fortunate to attend the event as guests of Cory and Jamie Halliburton. It is quite an event and much more of a party than we ever imagined. We highly recommend attending the event if you ever get the opportunity. It is all in the name of a great cause.
