Organization Holds Unique Fundraiser Themed, “The Big Reveal” to Honor and Benefit Adults with Special Needs

PLANO, Texas, April 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dancing shoes and good moves are required at the fourth annual My Possibilities Community Ball on Saturday, April 29 at the Embassy Suites Hotel - Frisco. A Plano-based non-profit, My Possibilities is dedicated to empowering adults with special needs through quality continued education. The Community Ball will help raise funds for the organization’s clients, who are lovingly referred to as Hugely Important People or HIPsters.

The theme of this year’s event is “The Big Reveal,” and local magician, Trigg Watson will be the evening’s emcee. Watson will reveal some very exciting news regarding the future of My Possibilities and the entire North Texas special needs community. The event starts at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 10:00 p.m. Tickets for the event start at $150, and can be purchased online at

This event was not just created out of the desire to raise funds for the organization. The Community Ball is also an opportunity to celebrate the HIPsters and their accomplishments. Guests will have the pleasure of interacting first-hand with the HIPsters for whom they are raising money and advocating, while witnessing the joy HIPsters exhibit and spread as they dance to live music provided by the Georgia Bridgwater Orchestra. In addition to a formal dinner and dancing, the event will host a silent auction, wine pull and raffle which will last throughout the evening.

For the third year, Alliance Data is the Presenting Sponsor for the My Possibilities Community Ball – and many North Texas businesses, families and individuals have also joined together to make this event successful again this year.
