In 2014 the need to purchase more than 100 bikes for low income children arose (via Christmas is for Children) and an idea for a new event was formed. It took just one breakfast meeting and the talented women of Southlake were on board. The response was overwhelming, and in 15 short days the event was completely SOLD OUT!
With less than one month to prepare, more than 400 ladies were inspired, amused and awed by the 32 tables that ranged from elegant to casual and from formal to whimsical. The inaugural TableTops raised more than $32,000 and a new holiday tradition was established!
The 2nd annual event, held in November 2015, benefited The Gatehouse Grapevine! 100% of the proceeds went to make the first Christmas at the newly opened Gatehouse magical for the women and children living there! While the table decorators dreamed and schemed — an amazing committee of 100+ ladies finalized all the details — a successful silent auction, raffle, fun favor bags and much more! Over 615 women attended and more than $83,000 was raised!
KICK OFF THE 2016 HOLIDAY SEASON WITH THIS FUN AND FESTIVE EVENT! We are thrilled to announce our commitment to the women and children at The Gatehouse as our sole beneficiary again this year! The 3rd Annual TableTops will return to the Southlake Hilton on Friday, November 18th at 11:00 a.m. Guests will view and dine along wonderfully decorated tables featuring a reception style lunch and silent auction. Please consider supporting TableTops this year! Due to the overwhelming support of the community, all proceeds from this event will be used to purchase gifts and good cheer ALL YEAR LONG (not just Christmas anymore)! Funds will be used to make year-round holiday and birthday celebrations at Gatehouse ones to remember. The women and children living at The Gatehouse are working to make personal and powerful changes in their lives. You can get involved and support the event by:
1. decorate a table (no more tables available for TableTops 2016)
2. provide a silent auction donation
3. purchase tickets to attend
4. purchase a sponsorship to help underwrite the cost of the luncheon
