They’ll all be on hand for the new Jewel of Dallas Gala. The evening fundraiser on Thursday, Oct. 13 benefits The White Rock Lake Foundation which supports the maintenance and improvement of 110-year-old White Rock Lake (they’re calling the lake “the Jewel of Dallas”).

The new charity event takes place at the Granada Theater from 7:00PM-10:00 PM with VIP cocktails at 6, and live entertainment from Ricki Derek and his 15-piece band.
