What: Slipper Club Gala & Silent Auction

Where: Omni Dallas Hotel

The 411: It was a good night indeed for the Slipper Club’s 21st annual Gala & Silent Auction, which this year raised a record-breaking $116,621. Those funds benefit Rays of Light, a Dallas nonprofit dedicated to providing free quality respite care to families with special-needs children.

More than 800 of Dallas’ finest turned up for the black-tie, Beyond the Mask-themed affair, which also boasted the largest sponsor dinner in the event's history thanks to the likes of 7-Eleven Inc, Neiman Marcus, Kathy and Harlan Crow, Zephyr Gin, and the Ashford/Remington Hotels. After dinner, the fun continued with a casino, silent auction, raffle, photo booth, live music courtesy of The Project, and perhaps the best late-night idea ever: a mac-and-cheese bar.

The Slipper Club offers a unique network of friendship and opportunities for professional women and is dedicated to serving women, serving the community, and making a difference in Dallas.
