Greater Dallas Military Foundation, Inc.

The Mission of the Greater Dallas Military Foundation is to honor the U.S. Military and their families while generating funds for military relief organizations by sponsoring an annual Greater Dallas Military Gala of utmost quality. In all its activities the organization seeks to "Support Our Troops!" The Greater Dallas Military Gala celebrated its 53rd consecutive annual event on 16 April, 2016. Established in 1965 as the Dallas Military Ball by representatives of the Air Force Association, Association of the U S Army, Navy League, Marine Corps Association and other Reserve and National Guard organizations, the Greater Dallas Military Gala has become a unified military voice for the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area. Dedicated to honoring both Active and Reserve forces, the Greater Dallas Military Gala offers a unique opportunity to salute those who are serving, thank those who have served and pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Underwritten by North Texas citizens and business organizations, the Greater Dallas Military Gala is a formal affair. Complete with military pageantry, a strong military presence and entertainment, these annual events have afforded the opportunity for the community to meet members of our Armed Forces including the senior leadership. General and Flag officers representing all of our Armed Forces and local Military Commanders are also regular attendees. While the primary purpose of the Gala is to honor the military, net proceeds generated from the Gala are distributed to military relief agencies such as Army Emergency Relief and Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. Since the first Gala, several million have been distributed to these organizations. Sponsorship of the Greater Dallas Military Gala demonstrates your commitment to support our active and reserve military men and women. The generosity of our sponsors makes it possible for the annual gala to contribute more to military relief agencies that are assisting our military members and their families.
Funds contributed will be used to defray the cost of the annual gala fundraising events. Typical costs include audiovisual rental, entertainment, security, marketing, printing and postage, room rentals and transportation costs. These expenses are paid for using the proceeds of the event and affect the bottom line net proceeds which are ultimately distributed to relief organizations which support our military and their families.
