37th Annual Dallas Margarita Ball

The Dallas Margarita Society, Inc., (d.b.a. Dallas Children’s Charities) was formed in 1977 when a small group of business acquaintances decided to host a holiday party for associates and friends.

The Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization whose goals are twofold. The first is to provide at-risk Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex children with gifts at Christmas time and the second is to help those community organizations that work with at-risk children throughout the year.

The Dallas Margarita Ball has grown over the years and is now believed to be the largest annual invitation only charity black tie gala in the world, providing gifts for more than 6,800 at-risk children each year.

37th Annual Dallas Margarita Ball is on November 23, 2013, which is DMS's largest volunteer opportunity of the year. If you’ve been, you already know about the world’s biggest charity black tie, a little shindig they throw every year for 10,000 of their closest friends, and you also know about the thousands of Christmas toys they collect at the Ball for regional kids in need. If you’ve never been, volunteering is a great way to check out what DMS/DCC is all about.

    FYI... If you are CONFIRMED as a volunteer, you should have received an email from Santos Ramos (Dallas Margarita Ball 2013 Final Volunteer Schedule and FAQ). If your shift is 5:30 or later, you need to be in Ball attire during your shift. Everyone must be over 21. We ask that all guest (including volunteers) bring a toy when entering the ball. You must have your confirmation email from VolunteerSpot to get discount parking.
