Thank You For Making Giving Gala 2018 So Special

More than 1,000 TREC members and guests helped us Dream Big on Thursday as part of our annual Giving Gala celebration! TREC Foundation raised nearly $650,000 during the event, which once again took place at the Hilton Anatole’s Trinity Ballroom.

The funds support TREC Foundation’s ongoing three-year philanthropic plan to provide more than $1 million in grants and professional services toward Forest District Revitalization efforts in South Dallas/Fair Park alongside partnering community organizations St. Philip’s School and Community Center, Cornerstone Baptist Church, CitySquare and the Forest Theater.

In the last three decades, TREC Foundation has raised and provided more than $11 million to over 100 nonprofits.

During the gala, TREC honored the City of Dallas’ GrowSouth Fund with special guest Mayor Mike Rawlings.

Roger Creager performed as the evening’s entertainment.
