Regina Bruce and Dr. Carla Russo, chairs of The Power of You 2023 Awards Luncheon benefiting Bryan’s House, have just confirmed Mickey Rowe, author of Fearlessly Different: An Autistic Broadway Actor’s Transformational Insights, an autistic and legally blind person and founder of the National Disability Theatre, as the featured speaker at the October 23rd luncheon at the Dallas Country Club.

In more exciting news, the luncheon, subtitled “Extraordinary things happen when kids with special needs are given wings to fly” presented by the Lone Star Monarchs, welcomes Hoyl Financial as the title sponsor.

“That means that 100% of each seat’s value, whether it’s at a certain underwriting level or ticket sales, will be matched by honorary chair, Stephen Hoyl’s firm, Hoyl Financial, so that all of those funds raised directly benefit Bryan’s House,” Regina said. “Stephen’s generosity is unmatched and certainly will make a great impact and a crucial difference in fundraising profits not only for the luncheon’s net profit, but for Bryan’s House, as well.”

Awards recipients in the following categories will join in a VIP reception just prior to the luncheon and include Accessibility Award: Santander Consumer USA; Clinical Partner Award: Broadway Cares – Equity Fighting AIDS; Community Award: Debra Villarreal; Corporate Award: Liberty Mutual Insurance; Philanthropist Award: Rose Family Foundation; Volunteer Award: Norco Mayflower Movers.

A limited number of Individual tickets begin at $300. Individual Butterfly tickets are $500 and VIP Butterfly Patron tickets are $1,000 and include varying benefits. Sponsorships and underwriting begin at $2,500 up to $25,000 with different levels and benefits.
