Dallas young professionals suit up for inaugural Sunday fun day party with purpose
What: Dallas Cotillion Club Sunday Pool Party
Where: Stoneleigh Hotel
The 411: One of Dallas’ premier clubs for professional young women closed the summer with a high-energy pool party that raised over $1,700 for the organization's beneficiary, Genesis Women’s Shelter. More than 80 guests made a splash at the inaugural event.
They enjoyed beats by DJ Souljah and DJ JC, sips from Peroni, an SPF Bar from Coola Suncare, VIP gift bags from Prive Medical, and jewelry and accessories for purchase from Dallas-based McCauley + Luck.
The new event is one of many ways that the group aims to help Genesis Women's Shelter throughout the year, from volunteering to raising funds for administrative and programming needs.
“Dallas Cotillion Club seeks to be an organization of women who support women, with proceeds from various events throughout the year benefiting Genesis Women’s Shelter,” says Kelsey George, Cotillion Club underwriting chair, in a release. “Genesis helps women and their children in Dallas find safety, shelter and support after experiencing domestic violence, and raises awareness regarding its root cause and impact.”
Dallas Cotillion Club was founded in 1944 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 in Dallas, it remains focused on promoting volunteerism and developing the potential of women.
