The social event and cocktail reception of the season is here once again! The Wharton Club of DFW is pleased to announce the Annual Membership Gala - An Evening to Remember will be held Saturday, January 25!

This festive event is the kick-off of the new year, and is our chance to reward our Members, celebrate the club’s successes, and launch the upcoming year's programming.  I hope you agree 2019 was a huge success for the Club, and we are looking forward to an even bigger 2020!

NEW this year... Gala will be a beautifully catered event at the wonderful home of one of our alumni, Birken Olson, WG'98 and his lovely wife, Kelly. They have graciously opened their 7,800 sq ft home sitting on two acres in Stonebriar Creek Estates minutes away from Plano Legacy West to us. For a sneak-peak, take the tour.

And the Club will provide a complimentary open bar as well as complimentary valet parking, in addition to our assortment of heavy hors d'oeuvres. 

The Club continues to honor our current Members with a complimentary ticket to the event as a “Thank You” for your support and participation. Note that RSVPs are required, and the membership must be active at the time of the Gala.

Please feel free to bring your significant other or a guest.  Guest tickets for Members can be purchased online for $25 where you can enter a name for his/her name tag.  

Non-Members can also attend this year for a price of $90 each

This elegant event has proven to be a wonderful success, reaching capacity almost every year!

Catch-up with old friends and make new ones! This is an excellent time to reinforce or build your Wharton network in a fun, festive environment. If you have any questions regarding the Gala, please contact Shea.

Welcome to 2020 and we look forward to seeing you at the Gala!
