The Dream Ball Brings Sport Celebrities Together to Support Athletic and Educational Opportunities for Youth
DALLAS, TX (MARCH X, 2014) – The Nancy Lieberman Foundation promotes athletic and educational programming for youth at its third annual Dream Ball charity event at the Omni Hotel in Dallas on Thursday, April 17, 2014. Lead sports anchor for TXA 21, Steve Dennis, will welcome VIP guest at a red carpet event beginning at 6:00pm.
Guests will enjoy dinner and conversation with numerous sports celebrities from across the country as they support the educational and basketball scholarships, backpacks and laptop programs, and DreamCourts that are pivotal in empowering children to realize and achieve their dreams.
“Thanks to the funds raised at our annual gala, hundreds of children have the opportunities to achieve their dreams and contribute to their communities,” said Nancy Lieberman, Founder of the Nancy Lieberman Foundation.
“Not every child has the same opportunities in life. We are committed to providing deserving youth with the resources they need to lead promising lives. This is possible through the generous support of our communities and I am delighted to have the support from so many corporate partners, community business leaders, and friends that allow us to impact the next generation and ensure they have the tools to succeed on the court and in the classroom.”
The Nancy Lieberman Foundation will recognize and honor world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as the Inspirational Award recipient at this Dream Ball. Diana will speak at the event and share her story of courage and perseverance.
Baylor Jack and Jane Hamilton Hospital have been proud to serve as the title sponsor of the Nancy Lieberman Foundation gala for the past three years. “We’re honored to be a part of the Foundation’s important work to transform children’s lives through education and basketball,” said Nancy Vish, President/Chief Nursing Officer at Baylor Jack and Jane Hamilton Hospital. “We’re proud to partner with organizations that invest in programs which help children develop the life skills they need to be successful and where children are given the tools of hope, and the opportunity to thrive”
In partnership with presenting sponsor WorldVentures Foundation, The Nancy Lieberman Foundation has partnered with the NCAA in providing funding to build a 10th DreamCourt for the Boys and Girls Club in Arlington before the weekend of the Final Four.
