2323 Ross Avenue #1900 Dallas, TX 75201

Join us April 18th for a FREE "April Showers" Happiness Hour! This is a wonderful opportunity to network with purpose with the like-minded women of the caring Women With Promise community while helping disadvantaged women right here in north Texas.

Our Signature Designer Handbag Raffle will help us meet our goal of delivering $10,000 to "shower" the Rural Early Childhood Network Program (ReACH) of the Fannin Behavioral Health Leadership Team with funds to provide much-needed supplies. This amazing organization provides encouragement, support and supplies to north Texas at-risk moms and children.

 

Did you know

  • The fastest growing demographic in poverty are children under the age of 5 in North Texas.

  • Babies can't wait. Research shows that 90% of brain development happens pre-natal to five years old.

  • Nearly half (48.4%) of female-headed households, with children under 5, are living in poverty

 

Through our "April Showers" Happiness Hour raffle ticket sales, Women with Promise is wrapping around these moms, providing encouragement, support, and supplies for the Fanin Behavioral Health Leadership Team's early childhood education program. The mothers they serve face barriers and risk factors with few to no supports, harmfully affecting both them and the youngest community members. Fanin's Parent Educators will use the supplies Women with Promise is donating to create bonds and relationships while building families resources to care for their children.

 

Raffle tickets are 1 for $25 or 5 for $100

  • Navy Valentino handbag, value $895

  • Luxury skincare and cosmetics gift basket from Cos Bar, value +$1,000

2023 Cocktails & Couture
at Neiman Marcus

November 28, 2023

Another fabulous Cocktails & Couture is on the books. The fashion experts at  NeimanMarcus put on an incredible show and our guests were definitely inspired! Santa passed out cookies and posed for "elfies" as cocktails and delectable delights were passed. And of course, a little private shopping to kick off the holidays.

The best part? Mingling with like-minded women while raising more than $25,000 to give a hand up to north Texas women emerging from crisis.

Thank you to our caring community of #differencemakers who attended, bought raffle tickets, and volunteered! Together, we are helping others.
