United We Stand

“Honey Bee” … “Boys ‘Round Here” … “OMG” … “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” … Those are just a few of the chart-topping hits from megastars Blake Shelton and Usher, who will bring their guitars and dancing shoes to town Friday, February 6, for the United Way of Metropolitan DallasUnite Forever Gala. The evening serves as the grand finale for the year-long 90th anniversary celebration of the nonprofit, which has improved lives since 1924 via its mission that everyone in Dallas deserves a quality education, a stable income and good health — the building blocks of strong families and thriving communities. Chairing the 90th anniversary are Troy Aikman and Charlotte Anderson, who will welcome guests to AT&T Stadium alongside gala chairs Lenise and Randall Stephenson, Karen and Tom Falk, and Mary and Rich Templeton. Honorary chairs include philanthropic heavyweights Ebby Halliday Acers, Ruth Altshuler, Lyda Hill, Sally and Forrest Hoglund, Caroline Rose Hunt, Margot and Ross Perot, Marianne and Roger Staubach, and President George W. Bush and Laura Bush.
