Ken Thompson has been selected the 2012 Angel of GRACE.
The Angel of GRACE award is presented at the GRACE Gala each year to an outstanding GRACE supporter who exemplifies the agencyâ€™s mission. The announcement was made recently at Grapevine Relief and Community Exchangeâ€™s VIP gala sponsor party, hosted by Paula and Charlie Walker in Westlake.
â€œKen and The Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet have been the Galaâ€™s Presenting Sponsor for five years now,â€ said Shonda Schaefer, GRACE executive director. â€œHowever, he has known, invested and supported GRACE over the past 25 years.â€
The GRACE Gala â€“ Angels Among Us is set for Saturday in the grand ballroom at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. The fundraiser will mark the 25th anniversary of GRACE, a non-profit that serves those in crisis in northeast Tarrant County. Chairing the black-tie anniversary event are Stephanie and Tommy Pennington.
Dinner, auctions and dancing to the music of Limelight are planned. More information is available at www.gracegala.org.
