2019 Chrysalis Ball

We are pleased to announce the 2019 Chrysalis Ball, presented again this year by Capital One, to be held on Saturday, October 19th at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in Frisco. This is the 16th year for the single largest funding event, providing for programs that change the lives of the thousands of youth served by Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County. Chrysalis means the process of transforming from the cocoon stage of a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. This is what BGCCC accomplishes in the children’s lives, with your support.
This year's theme is "We are the Champions", and represents Building Great Futures for today's youth that need a voice and a champion.
Guests will be treated to an evening of fine dining including all refreshments, dancing and the opportunity to participate in live and silent auctions. Capping off the evening is Emerald City Band, best live party band in the land, and the Casino After-Party.
A highlight of the evening is the Sponsor-A-Child program. Your participation enables them to support over 3,260 members and with summer and outreach programs, impact over 10,120 children annually.

Harvest Seasonal Kitchen 5 Year Anniversary Party

Harvest Seasonal Kitchen in Downtown McKinney is celebrating five years! 
This event will be a cocktail party, with Chef Drea bringing back her best dishes since opening day and Toby and the bar team mixing greatest hits behind the bar. They will have a collection of silent auction items and Matt Hamilton of Local Yocal will lead the live auction on top of the bar.
From the beginning, Harvest was designed to connect diners with the vibrant North Texas food community. Along the way they started a nonprofit to further that mission, the Seed Project Foundation. They wanted to demonstrate how we can have a positive ripple effect on the environment, the farm and ranch community, and the artists and artisans that live around McKinney by thinking before we purchase and embracing the mission that if we spend a dollar locally, seventy cents of it stays in our community.
All proceeds will benefit Harvest’s Seed Project Foundation.
Limited tickets available here:
