DAB in the community


The Dallas Autumn Ball goes beyond the best black tie event for young adults in Dallas; we engage the young adult community to become active in philanthropy and service. Your time and energy is all that is needed to make a difference, and our goal is to mobilize the energy and spirit of young professionals longing for a channel to become service-people.

Dallas Autumn Ball Volunteer Event and Rock the Vote Party!

The Dallas Autumn Ball is excited to announce our next volunteer event at Lipscomb Elementary School in Lakewood! If you are a Millennial into giving back, today is especially unique because we are also throwing a “Rock the Vote” party at Next Door bar on McKinney Ave. after we are done volunteering to drive voter turnout for the Dallas ISD School Board election. Election day happens to be this Saturday, May 7th for the DISD School Board race!

We will complete a gardening project as well as other outdoor work at Lipscomb, and immediately following we will be at Next Door bar from 2:00 – 5:00 PM celebrating election day. We will also have Marquis Hawkins, the District 5 candidate (if you live in Uptown/Downtown/Design District/Oak Lawn/Oak Cliff then this is your district!), make an appearance to talk about why he is running. Marquis Hawkins is a Millennial and this will be a great opportunity to meet a candidate on election day!

Come out to volunteer and vote this Saturday, May 7th and really make a difference in your community! See you Saturday for an exciting day!
