The First Response Appreciation Gala was our first annual black tie gala featuring awesome food and cocktails, a special guest speaker, live music, dancing, a silent auction and casino night
It was an awe-filled evening as we recognized the multitude of police, fire and volunteer organizations that came from all over to help us through the aftermath of the Rowlett Christmas tornado.
Here’s the video of the complete program from our first annual
First Response Appreciation Gala. It’s kinda long but well worth the watch if you were
affected by the tornado, or you’re a first responder. Check it out below.
ABOUT THE FIRST RESPONSE APPRECIATION GALA
We had a great turnout and hope for an even larger one next year
(we’re already planning next year’s event!)
Watch the video and you’ll see what we mean!
Proceeds from the 2018 gala ticket sales, silent auction, tax-deductible donations, and casino games will provide continued funding for the Rowlett Strong Foundation. Our foundation will continue to grow with additional fundraisers and the annual appreciation gala and will eventually be able to provide grants for officers and fire fighters from the police, fire and EMS agencies that responded to our needs, in their future times of need. We want to show them that our gratitude doesn’t end when the recovery ends.
Sponsorships are available to help us pull off next year’s event. Your sponsorship will help us pay for awards, food, decor and all the other expenses that go into throwing an event like this. It will provide visibility for your company and further show the community that you care. Rowlett Strong, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
