Time: 6:30 – 11:00 pm
Location: Irving Convention Center

For 65 years, Irving Cares has devoted resources to assist families in a financial crisis. Each year, supporters like you help us raise a significant portion of the funds needed to continue our mission. Your contributions help us keep the vision alive. Please join us as we celebrate our 65th birthday in epic fashion. Speaking of fashion – don’t forget to wear your favorite cocktail party attire as we party with a purpose.

On Friday, September 9, dinner and cocktails set the stage for an exciting live auction, then we’ll clear the floor for dancing to live music from Austin’s very own The Pictures Band. Join us to celebrate during this birthday bash extravaganza.
