Since its founding in the mid-1980s, Texas Women’s Foundation has been a leading driver of meaningful social and economic change for women, girls and families in Texas. As a part of its mission to invest in the power of women and girls to drive positive change, the nonprofit is partnering with Galleria Dallas and the Dallas Mavericks with an engaging new exhibit titled My Voice. My Story, which will be on display from Sept. 4-30, 2021.
Texas Women’s Foundation President and CEO Roslyn Dawson Thompson said, “The interactive exhibit highlights how we can use our voices and our stories to build community. Its colorful display features icons of communications, including a megaphone and picket sign, that are designed to encourage guests to take selfies, and share their stories using the hashtag #myvoicemystory.” Every person who shares that hashtag will enter in a drawing for a chance to win a signed jersey by Dallas Maverick All Star Luka Don?i? as a part of the Dallas Mavericks’ partnership with Texas Women’s Foundation.
In addition to the interactive component, the display offers guests the opportunity to register for Texas Women’s Foundation’s 36th Annual Luncheon, presented by the Dallas Mavericks, which this year is being held virtually at 12 noon on Thursday, Sept. 30. In honor of the anniversary, luncheon tickets are $36 and include access to a conversation between bestselling authors Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give) and Cleo Wade (Heart Talk: Poetic Wisdom for a Better Life and Where to Begin) moderated by Laysha Ward, executive vice president and chief external engagement officer of Target, the Luncheon’s speaker sponsor.
In addition to the exhibit, the Dallas Mavericks and Texas Women’s Foundation representatives will welcome customers to join them on Thursday, September 9th from 4 -6PM to win Mavs swag and learn more about the organizations’ work in building inclusive communities.
The Galleria Dallas exhibit is a part of the shopping center’s ongoing commitment to community and to creating opportunities for area nonprofits to engage with the public through installations and events at the center.
