Capital For Kids 2010


Over the past few years, DFW Events has had the incredible opportunity to coordinate the Capital for Kids Campaign that takes place each fall. This year, the event took place at Sons of Hermann Hall and was the perfect night for guests, donors and grant recipients to enjoy an evening for a cause! Visit the Capital for Kids website to learn more about this amazing organization giving back to the Dallas / Ft. Worth community! Enjoy pictures courtesy of Marty Perlman.

Upon arrival, guests were greeted by our carhops taking tickets for event admission.

Models were courtesy of Jan Strimple Productions.

Once inside Sons of Hermann Hall, approximately 600 guests filled the venue both inside and out.

One of the multiple amazing buffet spreads catered by Kent Rathbun Catering.

Lighting was provided by Beyond.

Guests were invited throughout the space for food and beverages, however, legendary entertainment awaited guests upstairs.

That’s right: ELVIS was in the building! What a GREAT show he put on!

There are various sponsorship levels for this event…below is an example of recognizing these generous donors!

Once the dinner buffets had been enjoyed, Kent Rathbun displayed a delicious assortment of pies…

Throughout the evening, guests were invited to the silent auction for a chance to bid on some FABULOUS prizes. Just to name a few: Package of Symphony Tickets to the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, Dinner for 10 at Abacus, Napa Valley VIP Wine Tasting Tour of the Top Wineries, and a Khima Eliazov Scalloped Clutch…there were AMAZING items!

Outside, guests were treated to the music of Justin Cash.

It was a beautiful evening, and guests LOVED the atmosphere of the back alley!

What an honor it was to be a part of such a wonderful event that gives back to kids in need! Check out Capital for Kids‘ website to see how you can be part of making a difference for the youth in our city!
