The Ryan Gibson Foundation’s 8th Annual Crown Ball

Crown BallThis Saturday past marked the 8th Annual Crown Ball for the Dallas chapter of The Ryan Gibson Foundation. This year’s “medieval themed party with a modern touch” was bigger and better than ever! The event chairs, including Third Power’s John Wagler, and volunteers converted the Ball’s Dragon Street venue, Marc Events, into a Purple and Gold extravaganza. More than 250 guests celebrated til late in the evening—dancing to the rhythmic mixes of Jeff Mitchell, resident DJ at the Ghost Bar in Dallas. Many were able to participate in the Silent Auction that featured jewelry, artwork, sports memorabilia, restaurant certificates, spa/salon treatments, and a guitar autographed by Willie Nelson.

The event also featured presentations by the Foundation’s President, Scott “Hook” Harmeling, as well as Dr. Pier Scaglioni, of the University of Texas Southwestern. Mr. Harmeling addressed the guests on the State of the Foundation while Dr. Scaglioni spoke briefly on the advances his team continues to make in Myeloid Leukemia research. To date, the Ryan Gibson Foundation has proudly contributed a total of $100,000 to UT Southwestern for Lukemia research. The Crown Ball is just one of the organization’s many fun-filled events that helps to fund this research as well as other related causes.
