Susan Salka and Sarah Cantu
Susan Salka, CEO of AMN Healthcare chaired the first annual CitySquare Block Party and a big financial win for CitySquare’s programs that provide food, housing, healthcare and, most importantly hope for our city’s folks in need. A fun evening with great food and libations, music by Manhattan and a successful auction raised the $500k.
AMN Healthcare and Anita Rednick were Champion Sponsors of the Block Party, each donating $50k. Patron Sponsors who gave $25k included Karen and Tom Falk, Kimberly-Clark and the Anthony Family. Loyal CitySquare supporters and new friends contributed to more than exceed the event goals. NBC5 signed on as media sponsor for their tenth year of supporting CitySquare’s annual major fundraising event.
The indoor/outdoor event was held on Saturday night, November 6th at The Empire Room in the Dallas Design District exhibiting banners of individuals that have benefited from CitySquare’s work. The evening began with a cocktail hour and sumptuous food stations followed by a high-energy paddle auction that brought in over $200k for the organization.
Following the auction and the evening’s comments from Susan Salka and CitySquare CEO JohnSiburt, the party continued on with dancing under the stars to the music of Manhattan where party goers celebrated what had already been a winning night for CitySquare.
