Big Thought's 25th Anniversary Gala

Big Thought will kick off its 25th anniversary year with a gala celebration at The Adolphus Hotel on Saturday, Feb. 11th at 7:00 p.m. The evening will feature a seated dinner, entertainment and dancing. Organizers anticipate more than 250 guests will attend the celebration.

Founded in 1987 as Young Audiences of North Texas by Mitch Jericho and Edith O’Donnell, Big Thought has grown from a small arts agency to an organization focused on providing creative learning opportunities to hundreds of thousands of children and families each year.

Key programs include Thriving Minds, Creative Solutions, Library Live, SLANT: Service Learning Adventures in North Texas, and Young Audiences. Big Thought – working in partnership with the City of Dallas, Dallas ISD and hundreds of Dallas youth, cultural and educational organizations – serves more than 300,000 children, teens and families every year.

The evening will honor Big Thought co-founders Mitch Jericho and Edith O’Donnell and pay tribute to IBM and the Corrigan family, recipients of the 2012 Founders Award.
