DFW Jingle Mingle at Dallas Contemporary Benefits Dream Fund

Q. What do you get when the members of nine marketing, media, advertising, communication and creative organizations from North Texas gather for a party with a purpose?

 A. The 2011 DFW Jingle Mingle holiday party at the Dallas Contemporary!

Dallas Light and Sound was there on December 1st to provide video projection and uplighting for this hugely successful event. Live posting of tweets about the event kept participants up to the minute in social media. DLS hi-definition projection equipment made those posts larger than life in a gallery space uplit in red and white for the holiday season.

The event benefited the Dream Fund, a media industry charity that steps in to help media professionals when the unexpected happens. For additional information about the 2011 DFW Jingle Mingle including a list of sponsors and participating organizations, visit www.dfwjinglemingle.com.

Paticipants at the event enjoyed noshing on heavy appetizers plus a dessert bar, from Doug Boster Gourmet Catering.

The evening featured an open bar, a raffle benefiting the Dream Fund, with fabulous prizes like a free Chevrolet car loan for a week, hotel packages, sports tickets, restaurant gift cards, and more! Dance tunes from a rockin DJ rounded out the night.

Diamond level sponsor Digital People provided access to a photo booth to create personalized flip books, while Chevrolet underwrote the social media entertainment experience. The Dallas Contemporary served as a stunning and fresh backdrop for the event, with guests invited to visit the galleries at The Contemporary, one of which is currently showing "Nutcrackers" by Jennifer Rubell. The event took place in the west gallery, which is pictured above and which contains numerous works by Aaron Prazette. "North Swell" is the title of this exhibition.
