Tarrant County Annual Benefit Dinner
By Tim Johnson, Vice President of Development

Lifeline Chaplaincy’s annual Tarrant County benefit dinner was once again held at the beautiful Fort Worth Club in Downtown Fort Worth. With over 200 in attendance, area volunteers and donors were recognized for their selfless acts of kindness and generosity. The audience was entertained by event emcee Michael Hix, along with a close harmony female trio featuring Michael’s wife, Ginny Lynn Hix, as well as the band Holla. This is the third year Michael has been the Emcee for the dinner and has helped to make the event fun and entertaining..

Each year Lifeline presents three very special awards to those who have gone above and beyond the normal expectations of our volunteers and donors. Those honored this year were Russ and Susan Garrison who received the Legacy Philanthropy award, Glennell West, recipient of the Caryl Fry Award for outstandingvolunteer pastoral care, and Bill Moses received the Golden ServiceAward for his years of service in many different ways.

Also presenting this year was Dave Keesling, co-founder of Philanthrocorp of Colorado who spoke of the need for spiritual estate planning and how one can leave a legacy for future generations. Lifeline has retained the services of Philanthrocorp and is offering, free of any charges or fees, guidance for those who would like to visit with Dave and his team about spiritual perspectives of estate planning.The end results of the dinner are a complete success, raising over $105,000 in gifts, obtaining eight responses to the Philanthrocorp appeal (the most our previous dinners were able to generate were three), and we are also very excited that we picked up 27 new donors!

Due to the generosity of those present and those who partner with Lifeline Chaplaincy, many hospital patients and their caregivers will be given the opportunity to connect with one of our chaplains or trained volunteers. All of us at Lifeline want to thank all who participated in this year’s annual event to make it a success!
