On Saturday, June 15, approximately 1,200 Dallas Fort Worth area residents will gather alongside adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) to celebrate more than a decade of My Possibilities (MP), a Plano-based, for-cause organization designed to provide adults with IDD the opportunity to continue their education.
MP provides programs that focus on socialization, vocational and trade training, and independent living skills to Hugely Important People (HIPsters.) These skills equip HIPsters with the knowledge and confidence needed to achieve the life they deserve. My Possibilities’ mission is to courageously and relentlessly pursue the full untapped possibilities of these Hugely Important People, making every day count.
MP is proud to announce Berry Family Services as the Community Ball Presenting Sponsor. This annual gala raises funds for various programs at MP. The Community Ball remains a collaboration between MP and several North Texas organizations, families and individuals in support of continuing education and vocational training for adults with IDD. On June 15, the 1950s-attire-optional event will take place at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Dallas Frisco Hotel Convention Center and Spa.
This year, the Community Ball is rockin’ a 1950s theme to transport guests back in time. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a red-carpet entrance for all HIPsters and ends at 10 p.m. Dance the night away with HIPsters with live music provided by Manhattan Sound.
