On Saturday, February 20, 2016, Family Promise of Irving will host its fourth annual gala fundraiser in the Grand Ballroom of the Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas. Honorary Chair and retired WFAA television news anchor, Gloria Campos, will preside over the Mardis Gras-themed dinner dance featuring music by the inimitable Doc Gibbs and his band.
Over the past three years, Night of Promise has grown to host hundreds of civic-minded, area residents who have a big heart for homeless families with children in Irving. Many people are surprised to learn that there were more than 500 homeless students in the Irving ISD in 2014 alone.
Family Promise of Irving provides food and shelter for homeless families with children and helps them return to self-sufficiency as they search for new jobs, undergo job training and obtain permanent housing. Daily operations are supported by congregations from more than a dozen area churches and over 400 Family Promise volunteers.
This year’s Night of Promise Mardi Gras theme will be complemented by a full-course dinner and dancing to live, big band music. A raffle drawing for a 40″ Samsung UHD Smart TV, an iPad Air 2 and a $500 Visa gift card adds to the evening’s excitement, while the silent auction, featuring a broad array of generously donated items, is a crowd favorite.

Family Promise of Irving is affiliated with the nationwide Family Promise which began in New Jersey in 1986. More than 75% of the families who complete the program have secured permanent housing. Its mission is to provide a safe environment in which families can stay together and get the assistance they need to return to self-sufficiency.
