About The Gala 

Since the year 2000, Irving residents and businesses, community philanthropists, friends and neighbors, have come together to celebrate the mission of Irving Cares. Please join us for another festive night of celebration at the ideally situated Irving Convention Center in the heart of the DFW metroplex. You and your friends will enjoy a specially themed dinner, live and silent auctions, a raffle, live music and dancing, networking, photo opps and more.

Funds raised at this annual event help support the Irving Cares Invest In Yourself program where individuals receive one-on-one coaching and access to education and tools they can use to care for their family. The goal is simple – empower our customers to reach self-sufficiency. Not only will Irving Cares assist with needs like job training and eductions, child care, rental assistance, resume writing and more – participants in the program are counseled and given access to tools they can use to care for their family – without a need for outside financial assistance. By earning a living wage, they become self-sufficient and no longer need to utilize Irving Cares.
