It will be a great time & supports a wonderful cause, the DREAM fund:
About DREAM Fund:
Dedicating Resources to Employees of Advertising and Media (DREAM) Fund is a nonprofit foundation and the support link to the community of advertising, public relations and media professionals across the Southwest. We exist to aid colleagues – in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas and Louisiana – through financial assistance and emotional support during times of personal crisis.
Since 1991, DREAM Fund has gifted over $1,500,000 to individuals facing illness, medical emergencies and other unexpected hardship.
Your tax-deductible contribution to DREAM Fund can ensure continued help to those who need it – people who, many times, would not qualify for assistance from other sources.
Bad things do happen to good people. But beautiful things happen when people pull together. And teamwork is what makes our DREAM work.
