Over the years, TSoG has held our holiday party during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. It’s a lower-stress time for families and students, and many of our alumni are home from college.  After missing this event in 2020, we couldn’t be more excited to see our friends and families again. 

For all donors who have given more than $250 this year, there is a 50% discount on event registration (Check your email soon for that discount code) and other discounts for TSoG Mentorship students and alumni. Come out and enjoy a delicious Italian buffet dinner with us!  Cash bar is also available for adult beverages.

When: December 29th, 6:30-9:30pm
Where: Aboca’s Italian Grill – 100 S Central Expy Suite 63, Richardson, TX 75080
