TACA Silver Cup Luncheon Presented by Chase and Neiman Marcus

Patrons of the Performing Arts are looking forward to the 2010 TACA Silver Cup Luncheon Presented by Chase and Neiman Marcus this Friday, March 5 in the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole. Chairman Rebecca Fletcher who has been very involved in the Arts for many years will welcome a nearly sold-out crowd.

The highlight of this Luncheon is the presentation of the 2010 Silver Cup Award which is given to one woman and one man for their outstanding contributions to the Arts in Dallas. This year’s award recipients are Cindy Rachofsky and John T. Cody, Jr.

Cindy is the Chairman of the Trustee Nominating Committee, Board Member and Executive Committee Member for the Dallas Museum of Art and serves on the President’s Advisory Council for the AT&T Performing Arts Center. She and her husband, Howard annually host Two x Two for Aids and Art which has raised over $21 million over the last 10 years.

John served on the Board of Directors of the Dallas Opera before becoming President of the Board and then Chairman. He then assumed the position of Interim General Director of the Dallas Opera twice. Before retiring, John was the President and Chief Operating Officer of JCPenney.

TACA's mission is to provide financial support and services and to increase public awareness and participation in the performing arts of North Texas, which improve the quality of life for citizens of all economic, social and ethnic backgrounds. On February 1, they distributed $1,000,000 to 35 performing arts organizations such as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Dallas Children’s Theater, Irving Symphony Orchestra and the Dallas Museum of Art.

Individual tickets are $500, $250 and $125. Sponsorships are $10,000 to $1,250. For more information, please contact 214-520-3930.
