What: The Birthday Party Project Turns 5
Where: The Bomb Factory
The 411: The Dallas nonprofit, which is dedicated to throwing rad birthday parties for children in homeless shelters, turned five in mod style with a '60s-themed bash. Co-chairs Katy Taylor and Sam Jacobson encouraged guests to channel Andy Warhol and Austin Powers for a night of go-go-dancing and charitable giving. Jordan Kahn’s Taylor Pace Orchestra and dueling DJs Jennifer Miller and Andy Austin kept the large crowd moving and grooving, while auction chairs Jennifer Burns and Jamie O’Boyle oversaw the silent and live auctions.
Bites and sips from Bolsa Mercado, Stirr, Outlaw Taproom, and Funky Town Donuts, among others, fueled guests to peruse the pop-up shop from Gifts For the Good Life. BPP founder and CEO Paige Chenault honored luxury wedding and event planner Todd Fiscus, for his contributions and efforts celebrating children in need over the past three years. All told, the night raised $500,000, all of which will go toward throwing incredible birthday parties for deserving kids.
