Not just any ball … it’s the Upbring Red Ball DFW, and we want you to catch the momentum.
It’s rolling your way on Saturday, April 30 at the The Fort Worth Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

Who Benefits?
The new “Caring For Kids” gala, in its seventh year, benefits Upbring Foster In Texas DFW, the largest provider of foster care and adoption services in Texas. More than 1,100 Texas children depend on FIT every year to provide safe, loving foster homes through one of our 14 local offices.

Why Red Ball?
For grownups, a ball usually means a dress-up event, but for kids a ball invites a sense of play – an essential part of a happy childhood. And that’s something we want for every child. Why red? Because red is the color of love.

Silent Auction Items Needed!
The Upbring Red Ball gala includes a large silent auction; all proceeds from the event will fund respite care for the families, along with foster care programs and activities, and provide muchneeded support to the wonderful families who take care of these kids! We are currently seeking donations for the silent auction! Themed gift baskets and giftcards, as well as handcrafted items and jewelry, are very popular. No item is too big or too small! Items need to be received by mid April – your donation will be noted with a placard at the auction, and if your donation is part of a business, your business cards can be displayed, as well. If you would consider donating items, please contact Allison Mull at 817-849-8511.
