    THEME: Education is critical to the success of our community. Please join us for a dialogue about education featuring a panel of educators, school system administrators and passionate parents who will discuss:
    – What our children need to be ‘future ready’
    – The critical role parents play in preparing our children for the future
    – The education options and progress of schools in the North Oak Cliff community

    The panel will be moderated by Josh Kumler from Bar Politics.

    The panel starts at 4:30pm and will be followed by a cocktail party where you can continue the conversation, or start new ones…

    Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to help The Kessler School build a new library for the school.

    Tickets are NOT required to enjoy the day. The suggested donation for each event is $10 and will help us keep track of supplies to get and to make a contribution to the school’s library fund. You can donate here.
