In 1944, the Dallas Cotillion Club (DCC) was founded as the Junior Arts League of Dallas, focused on serving the Dallas community and connecting young women with common interests. Today, as one of the premier social clubs for women, the Dallas Cotillion Club remains focused on similar initiatives. DCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of young professional women devoted to promoting volunteerism and developing the potential of women.
Whether it's participating in volunteer events for its beneficiary, Genesis Women's Shelter, joining the gala committee, attending social events, or partaking in any number of interest groups, Dallas Cotillion Club has multiple ways to get involved in the broader Dallas community.
DCC's signature event is its annual gala, which takes place each spring. Tickets are included with membership dues and additional tickets are available to the public for purchase.
Membership opens twice a year: once in the summer and once in the winter. A voting process takes place after the initial nomination, followed by a new member meeting explaining the various events and groups you can get involved in throughout the year.
Summer membership dues cover a full calendar year of events (summer to summer), including happy hours, volunteer opportunities, committee memberships, the annual gala, and more. Winter membership dues are augmented to cover only winter and spring season events.
