Children’s Cancer Fund® is a nonprofit organization based in Dallas, Texas that generates funds through several fundraising events throughout the year and private donations. This year, the Make Your Life Sweeter® team was honored to have attended the 31st annual Children’s Cancer Fund® Gala held at the beautiful Hilton Anatole hotel.

My team and I arrived at the Hilton Anatole to setup for the nights event. As we set up, we were welcomed with the biggest smiles and loudest laughs from all the children attending the Gala! As guests started to arrive for the silent auction, they were welcomed with a Make Your Life Sweeter® Dessert Bar with an assortment of Le Mod Macarons and ModChocolate Artisanal Truffles! Everyone couldn’t get enough and they were all having such a Sweet time eating light bites while walking around the auction.

In the kids room, The Make Your Life Sweeter® team was having an awesome time hanging out with all the children walking in the nights event! As all of the children played backstage, they were able to grab from a custom Make Your Life Sweeter® dessert bar made specially for the Children’s Cancer Fund® Gala! All of the kids (and even some of the adults) Loved our HotPoppin® Gourmet Popcorn Bar and Sugaire® Organic Cotton Candy Tasting Bar with glow in the dark cotton candy! We couldn’t stop giving popcorn to all of the SWEET little faces backstage!

Thanks to the fabulous team over at Children’s Cancer Fund® Gala, my team and I were given an amazing table at the Gala to enjoy with family and friends! We had such a great time and were so thankful to have had the opportunity to attend the Gala and watch all of the joyous faces up on stage! The Children’s Cancer Fund® Gala is such an important and beautiful nonprofit organization. I am so honored to attend every year, and cannot wait to see what sweet treats we can think of for next year!

Children's Cancer Fund Gala

Children's Cancer Fund is a non-profit organization based in Dallas, Texas. Their mission is to raise funds through fundraisers and events in order to donate towards children's cancer research. 

This year, the organization celebrated their thirty year anniversary gala at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Dallas. The Make Your Life Sweeter® team had the opportunity to attend the Gala, and work hand in hand with the amazing souls that dedicate everything they have to help those in need. 

The Make Your Life Sweeter® team and I had a SUGAIRE® Organic Cotton Candy Infusion Bar set up for the attendees as they walked into the VIP room, everyone went crazy for the SWEET treat! In the children's room, we set up a SUGAIRE® candy tasting bar with gummy bears and glow lights for the kids to enjoy while they waited to go on stage.

The children's room was full of fun activities for the kids to enjoy throughout the night. They had everything from magic shows and pizza buffets to balloon figures and Disney princesses!  Every person in the room was having a great time and am so thankful that I had the opportunity to experience such a joyous thing.

Later that evening, my team and I were able to watch the annual fashion show put on for the past thirty years for the non-profit organization with the most prestigious guests anyone could ever ask for; the kids themselves.

Every year, these kids have the opportunity to walk in the Children's cancer Fund fashion show alongside someone that they admire. This year, we got to see many acclaimed faces in the crowds. Some of the more notable faces were Dak Prescott, Tony and Candice Romo, Miss Texas, Troy Aikman, and the 106.1 Kid Kraddick Morning show's team, to name a few.

The night ended with a fundraiser which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars all going towards cancer research. DJ Tony Romo also made a surprise appearance which made everyones night. It was such an amazing and extraordinary night and am so honored to have been apart of it!

My team and I arrived early to set up the event, it was wonderful to see things before guests filled the rooms. Every table was set with an exquisite floral center piece with fine china for every guest. Before the event started, The Make Your Life Sweeter Team had the chance to meet the Golden Globe Nominated and "This is us" actress, Chrissy Metz!

While the guests started flooding in, my team and I took our seats at our table that was so graciously donated to us from The Elisa Project. I invited some close friends as well as my team, so that we could all experience this remarkable cause together.

As lunch was served, women from The Elisa Project went to  the podium and explained why they fight against this terrible disease that hurts so many people. They described cases where they've helped others and even had someone speak who had an eating disorder, and how The Elisa Project helped her overcome those tough times. 

After lunch was served, the speaker welcomed Chrissy and asked her to join her on stage. They talked about how important it is to love yourself and have a strong support system when times get rough. She talked about how she has struggled throughout her life with her weight and self image and said that if she could tell herself then what she knew now, then she'd say not to listen to the people that put you down; it's your life and it's your body, live it the way that you want.

Da Vinci School Gala - February 10, 2018

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin

The Da Vinci school fundraising gala was an event of pure elegance and wealthy donations. The event was held at the Dallas Country Club on the 10th of February. At seven o’clock, company started pouring in through the doors.

Guests were greeted with Rose Gold cotton candy on top of champagne at their arrival, dawned with masquerade masked straws and all. The fashion that lied in the coat closet alone was to die for. Women wore fur jackets of all colors, while others dawned the most exquisite pairs of shoes.

Little clouds of cotton candy danced around the room and made their way to the guests. The crowd loved Make Your Life Sweeters twist on, “just another glass of champagne”.

As the night grew longer, everyone was escorted towards the dining hall, the fundraiser was about to begin. My team and I had the opportunity to join in on the festivities and witness the auction first hand. The Auctioneer was auctioning the most amazing things away. Some of the donations included: A week long stay in Aspen, CO. a tour of a Tesla facility, a safari hunt in South Africa and a vacation in Belize, to name a few. People were throwing up their paddles like crazy, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars, all going towards an amazing cause, their children's education!

After the fundraiser had concluded, guests were once again greeted with the Sweet faces of the Make Your Life Sweeter team! Nestled between a remarkable fireplace and the dessert bar, guests were welcomed with Hotpoppin® gourmet popcorn bar. The popcorn bar held the three sweet flavors of: Chocolate Covered Salted Caramel, Confetti and South African Peppermint Crisp. Guests were overjoyed to find such a thing, they were even losing their spots in line from the dessert bar to try a piece of our sweet treats!

The night was full of sweet outfits, sweet people and an even sweeter cause! I’m so honored that I was able to be apart of it.
