Once again this year, my studio offered the donation of a hand-painted oil painting to be auctioned off at the Crystal Charity Ball. The Crystal Charity Ball is an amazing organization that has been helping children for over 60 years and raised more than $137 million for more than 140 children’s charities.
This year’s very worthy children’s charities benefiting from donations during the Crystal Charity Ball’s annual giving include the Autism Treatment Center, Inc., Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star, Children’s Medical Center Foundation, Dallas Holocaust Museum, Hunger Busters, Presbyterian Communities and Services Foundation, Rainbow Days, Santa Clara of Assisi Catholic Academy, The Crystal Charity Ball Educational Scholarship Project, and The Crystal Charity Ball Endowment Fund.
Dallas Holocaust Museum Experience Fund
A good example of the Crystal Charity Ball’s work is the project involving the Dallas Holocaust Museum Experience Fund. The donated funds will be used over three years to fund teach thousands of Title 1 and economically disadvantaged students about the history of the Holocaust, to advance human rights, and to combat prejudice, hatred and indifference. The children will be admitted to the Museum, free of charge, and their teachers will receive necessary curriculum support. A portion of the funds will also establish an endowment, allowing economically disadvantaged students admission to visit the Museum in perpetuity.
Children’s Medical Center Foundation Comprehensive Gait and Mobility Program
Another example of their work is the Children’s Medical Center Foundation Comprehensive Gait and Mobility Program. The donated funds here will be used for the purchase of five pieces of state-of-the-art robotic gait and mobility training equipment: The ErigoPro early mobilization tilt-table, the LokomatPro robotic based partial-weight-bearing treadmill system, the Andago body weight supported mobile robotic gait system, the Natus balance and gait assessment system and the HydroWorx therapy pool. Training for staff and robotic software upgrades are included with the purchase of this equipment.
And those are just TWO examples of the many projects undertaken and funded by the Crystal Charity Ball. Amazing work being done by these wonderful folks.
After many years of participating, I was delighted to once again offer up a donation to the Crystal Charity Ball’s extraordinary charitable work. I look forward to finding out who won the bidding on my donated painting and what they will want to be created just for them!
