      EVENT DETAILS
      The Dallas Margarita Ball

      The Dallas Margarita Society will host its 34th annual Dallas Margarita Ball on Saturday, November 20, 2010, benefiting Dallas Children's Charities.

      The Ball is the world’s largest attended annual black-tie gala, attracting some 11,000 people each year. It is scheduled for November 20, 2010 from 7:30 p.m.-1 a.m. at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel, 400 N. Olive in downtown Dallas.

      The Dallas Margarita Ball is a private, invitation only event. Invitations are available through Directors, Directors Emeritus and Members of Dallas Margarita Society, and through Sponsors of the Dallas Margarita Society/Dallas Children’s Charities.

      “This year’s Dallas Margarita Ball has it all,” said Mark Lorance, Ball vice president for Dallas Children’s Charities. “We are featuring music and dancing in both of the main ballrooms of the hotel, our casino provides additional entertainment throughout the evening, and our tenth annual silent auction is jam-packed with exciting items.”

      Performing at this year’s Dallas Margarita Ball are The Wonders and The Klocks in the Lone Star Ballroom, DJ Alex Vega in the Dallas Ballroom, and David Carr, Jr. in the Dallas Grand Hall. Additionally, artist Kat Gardner will be painting live in the Dallas Grand Hall and that work will be live auctioned upon its completion.

      The 2010 Dallas Margarita Ball auction includes travel and hotel packages, jewelry, art, furs, restaurant certificates, sports tickets and collectibles from some of sport’s most famous athletes. The 2009 silent auction generated $150,000 for Dallas Children’s Charities.

      About Dallas Children’s Charities
      The Dallas Margarita Society, Inc. (d.b.a. Dallas Children's Charities) was formed in 1977 when a small group of business acquaintances hosted a holiday party and asked their guests to bring Christmas gifts for less fortunate children. The Society’s goals are to provide disadvantaged Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex children with gifts at Christmas time and to help community organizations that work directly with underprivileged children. The Charity Ball has is believed to be the largest annual invitation-only charity black tie gala in the world, with over 11,000 guests, providing gifts for more than 7,000 disadvantaged children each year.

      The Dallas Margarita Society hosts fundraising happy hours throughout the year, an annual golf tournament in early summer and the Charity Ball early in the holiday season. At the Ball, guests bring toys or sponsor gifts with cash. Generous sponsors provide operating support and scholarships to numerous community organizations. All fund-raising activities and events are donated to local DFW children's charities. www.dallaschildrenscharities.org
