Capital for Kids 2014


For the past 10 years, Capital for Kids has been making a difference in the lives of children in need across North Texas. Over the course of that decade, CFK donors have contributed 10 million dollars in support of organizations that educate, protect, and encourage at-risk children. So how do you celebrate such milestone numbers? That’s easy: by throwing the birthday party of the decade!

We’ve had the privilege of teaming up with CFK for eight years in order to fête the men and women who so generously give back, and this year was no exception! With CFK’s 10-year anniversary theme in mind, a festive environment was created within Dallas’ FIG building that included boldly lit signage designed by Stage Works, a musical mash-up by Andy Austin and the Jordan Kahn Music Company, and a multi-colored bar stocked with all the ingredients necessary for delicious craft cocktails.

Tasty bites and treats were in abundance at this birthday bash thanks to delicious passed appetizers and dinner food stations catered by Food Glorious Food, a highly-trafficked Steel City Pops booth, and a festive three-tier cake created by Dallas Affaires. Other unforgettable highlights included the raffled baubles from Bachendorf’s, which were presented by models from the Kim Dawson Agency, and the 4 Flashes Photo Booth that kept all 900 guests posing, laughing, and repeating throughout the evening.

It is truly an honor to work with the group at Capital for Kids—our entire team looks forward to this event each and every year with much excitement. Cheers to 10 more years of giving every child the tools they need to succeed!
