SYP Dallas Supports Genesis Women’s Shelter

Each year, the programs at Genesis Women’s Shelter continue to expand in response to the increased need for these services. The outreach counselors see an average of 1,000 women and children each year, and the Shelter houses 650 women and children annually. These families are escaping unspeakable violence, and the goal is to provide them with all the tools they need. From the moment a woman picks up the phone to call the hotline, to her arrival at the Shelter, to the ongoing counseling for her and her children, Genesis Women's Shelter is there to help her navigate the difficult road and achieve success she once only dreamed possible.

Several organizations stand behind Genesis in its efforts to promote a safe haven for those in need. The Society of Young Philanthropists is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization designed to create a network of distinguished professionals by promoting philanthropic causes through charitable events.

The SYP Dallas chapter continues its fundraising efforts to help benefit the shelter. SYP Dallas' Debut Gala was held at the Dallas Contemporary on May 22, 2010.

It was a beautiful red carpet event. Attendees came dressed to impress. SYP Dallas President Kent Arnold kicked it off welcoming Genesis Women's Shelter Executive Director Jan Langbein. From the cocktail bar to the table reservations to the DJ’s turntables and live band to the highly sought after silent auction items and contemporary art donated for bidding, distinguished guests enjoyed a spectacular and successful event. All proceeds benefited Genesis Women's Shelter.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin joined us at the SYP Dallas Debut Gala to support Genesis Women's Shelter.

To learn how you can help support Genesis Women’s Shelter, join SYP Dallas for happy hour TONIGHT 6:30-10:00 pm at Teddy's Room 2404 Cedar Springs Rd., Ste. 400. Teddy's will be donating a percentage of the bar tab in support of SYP's 2010 goal of $25,000 for Genesis Women's Shelter.
