Striving for Greatness with Allyson Felix Gala

Dallas, TX – Educational First Steps (EFS) hosted the Striving for Greatness gala at The Ritz-Carlton Dallas on Tuesday, February 20th. The evening featured a seated dinner and conversation with the most decorated U.S. Olympian, Allyson Felix. In addition to raising funds to further their work in early childhood education, this event was a celebration of all that has been accomplished over the years. As EFS President & CEO, Vickie Allen-Brown, shared when honoring this year’s Early Childhood Champion award recipients, Jennifer Mosle and Berry Corporation, “Our community’s unwavering commitment to the Educational First Steps mission has made a significant difference in the lives of over 100,000 children since 1997. 100,000 children!”

These funds will help them continue to create and support high-quality early learning environments that ignite the minds of children from birth to age five throughout North Texas.
