The Dallas DAN Conference’s Saturday Night Dinner … Texas Style!

Hatandboot As you pack for the October ARI/DAN conference in Dallas on October 8-12, 2009, don’t forget to throw in your Stetson cowboy hat and western boots. This year we are having a Western-themed Gala Dinner, Auction and Dancing on Saturday night October 10, 2009. The dress for the evening will be western attire.

This year we are enhancing our Saturday Evening dinner at the Fairmont Hotel Dallas to include more food, drinks, events and entertainment. This evening is always a favorite for our conference attendees. It allows everyone time to come together in a social and relaxed setting for a wonderful dinner as well as an opportunity to connect with other parents, medical professionals, and specialists. We all need to “kick up our boots” and have some fun.

The event features a sit down dinner. Following, the dining room will evolve into an evening of mingling and entertainment. You are invited to stay and break in your cowboy boots.  Other conference attendees not attending the dinner are invited to join our festivities at 8:30 pm for $5 to cover the cost of the entertainment. These "after dinner" tickets will be available during the conference. The DJ will lead us through dips, digs and drags as we warm up the dance floor with line dancing. Your favorite dance music throughout the evening will keep the party lively. The Silent and Live Auction will be a highlight of the evening. You will have plenty of opportunities to bid on wonderful donated items that will help your kids as well as benefit the Autism Research Institute. There will even be a contest for Best Dressed Cowboy and Cowgirl later into the night!

Come and surround yourself with friends, going through similar life experiences, in a light and enjoyable atmosphere. Seating is limited, so throw on your cowboy hat and jingle your spurs and sign up early.
