Charitable Partnerships

MARKET Highland Park Village is in proud partnership with the following charities:

 

BOO Yard Sign

The BOO Yard Sign Challenge, sponsored by Neighborhood Credit Union, takes simple neighborhood trickery to a community fundraiser. BOO your friends and neighbors by secretly leaving the sign in their yards and Halloween treats at their doorsteps without them seeing you. The goal is to have a yard sign on every lawn in your neighborhood!

For every sign purchased, a child at Children's Health will receive a special Halloween treat, and all proceeds go toward patient programs and services to make life better for children. Don't have a yard to place your sign in but still want to make a difference? You can make a special donation to our BOO campaign and make it a spook-tacular Halloween for all of our patients.

  

TWO x TWO

TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art is an annual contemporary art auction held in the Richard Meier-designed Rachofsky House in Dallas, benefiting two organizations—the Dallas Museum of Art and amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.

Thanks to the phenomenal support of the dealer and artist community, corporate sponsors, and Dallas patrons, TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art’s annual benefit gala dinner and art auction has raised over $93 million in its 21-year history in support of amfAR’s AIDS research initiatives and the DMA’s contemporary art acquisition program.

TWO x TWO is such a successful event because it provides an opportunity to support two very worthy organizations. amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, has made great strides in essential AIDS research initiatives over the last 25 years, and TWO x TWO has become amfAR’s largest fundraiser in the United States. The Dallas Museum of Art has added over 295 major works of contemporary art to their permanent collection with TWO x TWO proceeds donated to their Contemporary Art Acquisition fund and exhibitions.
TWO x TWO is also the DMA’s largest annual fundraiser.

Since then, it has grown to become one of the premier school districts in the country and is now comprised of eight campuses: five elementary schools, one intermediate school, one middle school and one high school. The district has an enrollment near 7,000 students and employs over 800 people, including more than 440 teachers, with 63% of teachers holding a Master’s degree. We work to instil in all of our graduates our school district's motto: Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve.


Cattle Baron's Ball

The first Cattle Baron’s Ball was a full-fledged Texas barbecue under the chairmanship of Patti Hunt and Jacque Wynne, who founded the event to raise funds for cancer research through the American Cancer Society. More than 500 guests attended the western-themed event in 1974, which was held at Toddie Lee Wynne’s Star Brand Ranch. Through ticket sales and the auction, the inaugural event raised $56,000. Today the ball hosts more than 3,000 guests and raises millions each year.
