The Collective invites you to celebrate its fourth annual Coats & Cocktails signature event to raise awareness for those in need. Coats & Cocktails is a coat drive to collect outerwear for women, men and especially children every holiday season. We invite you to bring new or gently used coats and outerwear for donation to Dallas Life Foundation, a place where homeless men, women, and children receive help and hope in their time of need.
Although all donations are welcome, THERE IS A GREAT DEMAND FOR CHILDREN'S COATS. With your help, our goal this year is to surpass the 450 coats we collected last year. In addition to your coat donation, a portion of ticket proceeds will be reserved for donation.
Begin the evening at our Cocktail Reception. Guests will be greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne (first 200 to arrive) and enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres while they last. Take advantage of our interactive Photo Booth and instantly share your experience with your social network (please tag us in all photos/selfies using #CoatsAndCocktailsDFW).
Guests can look forward to pleasant surprises as the night progresses. Our musical maestros of the night will be providing the perfect backdrop for an evening of good music, dancing, cocktails, and philanthropy.
DRESS CODE: COCKTAIL
For guys, this dress code calls for a dark suit and tie. For women, short dresses that are party-ready. When in doubt, wear a little black dress and dress it up with fun jewelry—or, if you’d rather wear color, opt for something bright and feminine.
Foolproof Outfit: A LBD for women and a Suit/Blazer/Slacks for men.
