Gala will give hope to homeless teens

Journey to Dream volunteersWho doesn’t love a great fairy tale with a happy ending?

Journey to Dream, a local nonprofit that has been providing hope to hurting kids for over a decade, will host their 3rd Annual DREAM BIG Gala on November 7, 2015.  The gala benefits Journey to Dream’s home for homeless teens: Kyle’s Place.

Swept away by a magical wonderland, guests at the event will experience the story of Cinderella with all its elegance and heart. Master of Ceremonies is Denton County Commissioner Andy Eads. Celebrity Waiters (aka Prince Charming) include State Representative Tan Parker, State Representative Ron Simmons, Sheriff Will Travis, Ranch Hand Rescue CEO, Bob Williams, and Youth Advocate, Bronson Lewis.

Opening in 2016, Kyle’s Place will be the only shelter in Denton County for unaccompanied youth, a demographic rapidly rising across our country.

Kyle’s Place will provide a safe place for kids to stay out of harm’s way from sexual predators, human traffickers, and violent offenders; as well as offer the tools and resources they need to overcome the adversity they are facing.

For over a decade, Journey to Dream has served over 85,000 students through school prevention assemblies, student support groups, and community outreach. The addition of Kyle’s Place allows the organization to continue meeting the needs of young people in our communities.

The night will begin with a VIP reception at 6 p.m. Registration will open at 7 p.m., followed by an elegant, full course seated dinner, silent and live auctions, music and dancing until 11 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Lewisville.
