Each year, YTACS hosts a series of premier signature events. These events are a great way to meet other young professionals, learn about the organization, enjoy delicious food, and drink and raise money for a great cause! In previous years, we have hosted Chili Cook-Off for a Cure, Drive Cancer Away golf tournament, Race For The Cure, Drive In To Drive Out Cancer outdoor movie experience, BubblyQ gala, and our annual holiday party with check presentations.
Chili Cook-Off for a Cure
At Chili Cook-Off, teams comprised of YTACS supporters and beneficiaries bring the heat to win the best chili recipe in town. During the event, guests can sample and vote on their favorite chili teams, enjoy live music, and extinguish the heat from the samples with cold beer and margaritas. A team of local celebrity judges will award prizes for the best tasting chili, in addition to other categories including team spirit, crowd favorite, and cutest dog. This is known to be YTACS’ most family and dog friendly event we host throughout the year!
BubblyQ has quickly become one of Dallas’ premiere cuisine-driven event for young professionals. The event features extraordinary dishes from Dallas’ top chefs, led by celebrity chef chair, Dean Fearing, as well as craft cocktails, music and an impressive silent auction. The sold-out evening attracts over 500 attendees, and supporters include many of those personally affected by the heartbreak of cancer as well as their friends and family.
The Holiday Party continues to be one of YTACS’ signature events introducing our selected local beneficiaries. The evening begins with highlighting our beneficiary organizations and sharing our support in each of their causes. Throughout the night, members and guests enjoy holiday cocktails and light bites, and end the evening by presenting the checks to show off our hard work and dedication to the cause.
Confession, we like to have a good time! Our social events are a great way to bring our members together, raise awareness for the organization and, of course, have some fun. During the year we plan several social events including our Membership Kick-Off, workout classes and summer Happy Hours.
