2015 Diamond Gala
The Diamond Gala is TSD Foundation’s premier fundraising event of the year. This annual event is an exclusive evening of fine dining, entertainment, and fundraising to support the Texas School for the Deaf. The 2015 Diamond Gala will be held on Friday, May 1, and will feature a Casino Night! Save the Date for a wonderful evening of fun and fundraising for the deaf and hard-of-hearing children throughout Texas!
The TSD Culinary Arts Students — working under the direction of the Hilton’s Diamond Chef Mark Dayanandan — will prepare a four-course gourmet meal for over 200 guests and every course will be paired with magnificent wines from Ste Michelle Wine Estates.
After the gourmet dining experience, guests will participate in fun-filled, interactive casino games! Come test your luck at poker, blackjack, craps, and roulette!
Throughout the evening, guests will also be offered a variety of fun and engaging ways to donate to the TSD Foundation, including Silent and Live auctions, Paddles Up, and the Wheel of Fortune. Previous galas have featured a wide variety of auction items, such as gift cards to Austin restaurants, gift baskets, golf vacations, and trips to Denmark and Mexico! The Paddles Up portion provides guests the opportunity to Fund-A-Need by donating to specific TSD programs. Paddles Up bids typically range from $100 to $1000. The Wheel of Fortune and Casino Gaming will add another element of fun to the fundraising!
Proceeds from the Diamond Gala support TSDF’s mission to strengthen and sustain language, academic achievement, and career pathways for deaf students at TSD and across Texas.
Please Save the Date, Friday, May 1, and make plans to join us for Casino Night at TSDF’s 2015 Diamond Gala!
