On November 12, The Delta Companies (TDC) will be hosting a silent auction at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse in Addison. All of the proceeds will benefit patients at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) and help further the mission of giving children back their childhood.
TDC started holding silent auctions in 2007, when an employee asked for an event to be held that would benefit TSRHC. That first auction was held internally, and the goal was to raise $5,000. The event flew past its goal, and over $17,000 was raised, all of which was used to buy toys that were donated to TSRHC.
The auction has continued to grow each year, with the first public auction held in 2010. Each year the goal is simple: raise $1 more than the previous year. For the past three years, the auction has raised over $100,000. Last year, $117,222.27 was raised, making this year’s goal $117,223.27 — $1 more than last. Employees of TDC are confident they will reach their goal.
Every year since this event began, TDC employees are given the opportunity to choose the charity they would like to support, and the employees have always chosen to continue supporting TSRHC.
“A large part of the reason we continue to support TSRHC is the people associated with and working in the hospital,” said CEO Jeff Bowling, “Their level of passion for the kids is truly unmatched and certainly inspiring. TDC members here feel that dedication. They are attracted to it and want to support it any and every way possible. The amazing people here at TDC give so selflessly each year in so many ways.”
We are excited for this year’s event and honored that TDC and the surrounding community are so willing to give generously to the children at TSRHC.
