Since 2006, GL Seaman & Co and OFS Brands have partnered to host the Furniture 4 Kids event in which architecture and design firms transform a child’s toy box into works of art. The competition concludes with a gala and silent auction in which bidders purchase the toy boxes and judges rank the submissions. Since inception, this event has raised over $100,000 for local charities.
This year’s gala will be held on Thursday, February 19th at Sixty Five Hundred from 5-9 pm. The gala will serve as a celebration of efforts for the design firms and sponsors. Dinner and drinks will be provided for all in attendance and Lisa Garza, celebrity chef and owner/operator of Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar, will lend her culinary expertise to create the dinner menu for the top level sponsors of the evening.
Recently, the event benefitted the Mavs Foundation with guest appearances at the gala by former Dallas Mavericks stars Jason Kidd and Jason Terry. This year’s event will benefit Vogel Alcove Childcare Center for the Homeless and help fund the developmental and therapeutic programs offered to homeless children at no cost to the parents.
