Prospère Art Gala 2020

On Friday, January 31st Model Makers Group & Radz D. Photography presented Prospère, the first Art Gala at the first Art Hotel in the Dallas Arts District - the HALL Arts Hotel. Radz D. Photography, together with Model Makers Group, hosted its third fundraising event on January 31, 2020. This year’s theme was inspired by Dallas women and their true stories of thriving beyond life challenges. The event’s art show displayed portrait art featuring works by award-winning photographer, Radz Daswani. Through the lens, she allowed the honored women to share the many emotions that are experienced through their journeys. Honorees for the evening included Ruby Bhandari, Founder of Silk Threads, Inc.; Martha Wolf, Co-Captain of Dallas United Crew Dragonboat Team; Traci Parker, Co-Founder of Lez Talk Dallas. Special guests in attendance were the Honorable Tonya Parker with the 116th Civil District Court; Phuong Tran, Co-President of Young Texans Against Cancer; Melinda Imthurn, Artistic Director for Women's Chorus of Dallas; Susan Posnick, CEO Susan Posnick Cosmetics; Mike Wheless, Wheless Executive Search & Leadership Consulting. Over 150 ticketed guests were serenaded by Dana Harper, from NBC’s The Voice, as they shopped the silent auction, sipped signature cocktails and savored delicate french hors d'oeuvres custom-curated by the chefs of The HALL Arts Hotel. Proceeds from the soirée benefitted A Model Patient dedicated to serving women around the country who are facing breast cancer. It’s a woman-to-woman, grassroots approach in order to positively and directly impact patients founded by Tara Darby Rasheta.
