The Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Dallas) and the Architecture and Design Foundation (the Foundation) announce their second annual Impact Dallas Gala, a black-tie event taking place on Thursday, October 6, 2022 at The Thompson Hotel.
Impact Dallas raises funds to directly impact real-world problems, connect communities, and improve peoples’ lives. Last year’s inaugural gala netted $172,000 for the Foundation to fund community projects, provide scholarships to increase diversity in architecture, and provide year-round public programming and education. This year, architects, community leaders, and philanthropists will collaborate to raise $200,000 for the Foundation to continue to impact the region.
The signature Impact Dallas Gala includes passed hors d’oeuvres, a three-course meal, open bar, and live music and entertainment from the band Time Machine. The pre-function space will feature a silent auction, raffle, and immersive art experiences. Sponsorships are available and include access to an exclusive pre-event reception. The 2022 Gala theme is Black & White. Guests are requested to follow a black-tie dress code that fits the black and white theme. Tickets are on sale at www.dallasadex.org/gala/.
