What: Flight YPO inaugural gala
Where: Hall of State at Fair Park
The 411: Flight YPO, the young professionals group that supports Vogel Alcove, held its first fundraising gala at Hall of State in Fair Park. The sold-out event included dinner, dancing, and a raffle for such prizes as Jordan Spieth-signed memorabilia and an all-inclusive trip to Jamaica. The organization also handed out awards to Josh Webb, Flight YPO member of the year, and Lauren Halsey, board member of the year. The event raised more than $50,000, which aids Vogel Alcove in its mission to provide free, quality early childhood development services for Dallas’ youngest victims of poverty: homeless children from six weeks to 12 years old.
