North Texas Performing Arts (NTPA) announced last week that the Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) will be the presenting sponsor for the 3rd annual NTPA Stardust Awards. The awards show will be held Saturday, November 2 from 5 to 10 p.m.

DFA is a leading global dairy cooperative founded and owned by around 7000 family dairy farms throughout the United States. The business focuses on picking up and processing dairy products and connecting family farm-owners with major brands including Borden Cheese and Oak Farms Dairy. They will support NTPA, a nonprofit children’s theatre that aims to develop the character of youth through performing arts.

“We are thrilled to have DFA’s support enabling scholarships and programs to further our mission and give every child in North Texas an opportunity to take the stage and have their voice heard,” said NTPA’s Governing Board President Abbi Wreyford. “Their support for the NTPA North Texas Stardust Awards for the second year in a row offers a unique opportunity to support the performing arts and allows us to recognize the work of incredible performers, arts educators, nonprofit arts organizations, volunteers and more.”

The Stardust Awards will feature live performances, silent and live auctions, dinner, and awards that honor artists, art educators, performing arts organizations and philanthropists across North Texas. Finalists and honorees will be recognized at the event too. The event also highlights NTPA’s volunteers who assist with set design, costuming and other volunteer categories.

“NTPA is doing incredible work in helping make the performing arts more accessible to diverse communities, and we are thrilled to play a role in helping extend that reach,” said Danelle Bender the senior vice president and chief treasury officer of Dairy Farmers of America. “At DFA, we value diverse perspectives and are committed to fostering and strengthening a culture of openness, inclusion and continued growth.”

An independent blue-ribbon group of civic leaders and professionals run the award selection process from the applications they receive. The 2023 Stardust Award winners included actor B.J. Cleveland, Katherine Wagner (Business Council of the Arts), Graciela Katzer (International Festival), Tammy Meinershagen (Frisco City Council) and others.

The awards will be hosted at the Plano Event Center at 2000 E Spring Creek Parkway.
