While last year’s event raised more than $400,000 distributed to 47 North Texas charities, that amount is expected to climb in 2014.

Past beneficiaries include After-School All-Stars North Texas, Autism Speaks, Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County, C5 Youth Foundation, Community Council of Greater Dallas, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Dallas Symphony Association, Dallas Tennis Association, Dallas Wind Symphony, Foundation for the Education of Young Women, Fort Worth Public Library, Hendrick Scholarship Foundation, The Jason Terry Foundation, Inc., LeadersKids Fort Worth, ManeGait, Minnie’s Food Pantry, North Texas Food Bank, North Texas Youth Education Town Center – The Salvation Army, Play Like a Girl, Rainbow Days, The Turning Point, and many more. Funds also go to PESC’s own Team 22 program, which provides personal mentoring and unique experiences to underserved youth in the North Texas area. The program is a gateway that opens doors to the future for high-potential kids.
