Dallas young professionals get in the spirit with first holiday party
What: Young Friends of Wilkinson Center Christmas cocktail party
The 411: Nearly300 young professionals put on festive threads, tucked unwrapped gifts under their arms, and headed for the Henderson Avenue hot spot for the group's first holiday party, which also served as the kickoff to the Wilkinson Center's December 17 toy distribution. In addition to the cost of admission, guests made cash donations, and 100 percent of the evening's proceeds went back to the nonprofit, whose mission is to provide Dallasites with pathways out of poverty.
