CHARITY BALL | NOVEMBER 10TH, 2018 | DALLAS, TEXAS
The Rhapsody in Red Charity Ball will take place on November 10th, 2018 at the Belo Mansion in Dallas, TX and will benefit One Heart, an organization with the purpose of mobilizing individuals and organizations across the Dallas/Ft. Worth area to participate in a movement to impact incarcerated and at-risk youth. Tickets are on sale now for $135. We hope you will join us for this festive evening of dinner and dancing.
Rhapsody in Red is honored to support the work of One Heart
One Heart mobilizes the DFW community around youthful offenders to create equity and inclusion for a group that is otherwise disenfranchised. By equipping our youth with necessary skills and tools to navigate life, and by partnering to provide employment with Omni Hotels, One Heart addresses severe inequity for this demographic, and provides the opportunity to not only earn a living wage, but also a career pathway for advancement. Through this holistic approach, youths have the tools and opportunity – with relational assistance – to elevate themselves out of poverty.
Transforming DFW youth produces reduced crime rates in communities, reduces the taxpayer-funded costs to incarcerate, and activates the process that breaks the cradle-to-prison cycle in these families – all of which contributes to a thriving community.
One Heart also partners with the Dallas DA’s Office, Parkland Hospital, community mentors and Constables to help repair and improve local relationships. Transforming DFW youth produces reduced crime rates in communities, reduces the taxpayer-funded costs to incarcerate, and activates the process that breaks the cradle-to-prison cycle in these families – all of which contributes to a thriving community.
For your generous support, at the low cost of $5K per year, per youthful offender, you can join the community of DFW leaders committed to making a difference, one life at a time. Please see the list of comprehensive services listed below.
