This event comes together with the hard work of our wonderful facility host, the Arlington
Convention Center and its dedicated staff, and also by the efforts of The Arlington Margarita
Society Directors – 40 gentlemen with a deep commitment to our community. This year we
say THANKS to Dan Dipert and Rocky Walton, 2 long time directors who retired from the Board. Best
wishes to you both as you refocus your time to family and business!
Once again, we’re proud to team up with the Arlington Police Association and Santa Cops. They
do a great job working with the Arlington Independent School District (AISD) to make sure your toys
make it to the kids who need a little extra support. The biggest needs this year come from kids
aged 8-12, but please, NO bicycles. THANK YOU Arlington Police Department (APD)… YOU ROCK!
Last, but certainly not least, is a BIG THANKS to our generous sponsors. We could not make this
Ball happen without your support. Of course, it’s not a party without YOU, our guests! Thank you
for your generous support of a toy of at least a $30 value – what a difference you make. Just
in case shopping isn’t your thing, we’ll gladly accept your donation at the door – cash, check
or charge. We’ll even supply you with a envelope with your invitation, in case you can’t be at the
ball, but would like to support the cause!
So, one more time… ARE YOU READY??!!!
Thanks... and I can’t wait to see you on the 21st !
Don Duke, Chairman
