Dallas young professionals party at Gilley’s to give MS the boot
What: Yellow Rose Gala Boots N’ Roses
Where: Gilley’s South Side Music Hall
The 411: Event chair Scott Osburn and Yellow Rose Gala Foundation president Fallon Wynne Way welcomed more than 350 young professionals and seasoned philanthropists to this lively, Western-themed event that raises awareness for progressive multiple sclerosis. Professor D supplied the tunes while G Texas Catering, Rafa’s, and Lombardi Family Concepts fed the crowd, some of whom also partook in a whiskey tasting by Yellow Rose Distilling. Like last year, much fun was had by all at the photo booth.
This event served as the kick-off for the 2017 Yellow Rose Gala, scheduled for April 8 at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel. The Yellow Rose Gala Foundation is partnered with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and 100 percent of net proceeds goes to progressive MS research.
