DALLAS – November 11, 2022 – The Angels of Charity, the women’s auxiliary for Catholic Charities Dallas, helped kick off the holiday season with their annual fundraising event, “Hope for the Holidays,” on November 10.  

The signature Christmas gathering aims to raise money to purchase gifts for CCD’s Christmas Distribution, which helps make the holiday brighter for many. Through the generosity of our underwriters and attendees, Catholic Charities Dallas will be able to provide gifts for hundreds of families.  

Last year, over 700 families in nine north Texas counties received gifts of necessities, household items, toys and more. Over the years, CCD, along with the support of the Angels, has supported over 300,000 families in the North Texas area.  

This year’s event, hosted at the Jackson Walker, featured several incredible raffle items and a one-of-a-kind painting donated by Kim Kreis. Many thanks to our event chairs—Mary Huntress, Kristin Reed, Maria Vehslage, and Andy Walsh for their work to make this event a success.
