In 1977, a small group of area business professionals hosted a holiday party for associates and friends, with a goal to collect toys and raise funds for needy children in the DFW metroplex. In 1978, the endeavor grew into an annual gala called the Dallas Margarita Ball, organized as a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit entity, and became the Dallas Margarita Society.

By the next decade, the Society was expanding across the metroplex. In 1982, the Arlington Margarita Society began, and in 1988, the Fort Worth Margarita Society was established.

In 2001, the Dallas Margarita Society hosted its First Annual Las Vegas-style Casino Party, featuring Black Jack, Roulette, Craps, and DJs.

During the Dallas Margarita Ball of 2002, the First Annual Silent Auction was held, presenting items of art, gift certificates, weekend getaways, and sports history.

Today, several other metropolitan areas around the country, including Orlando, Tallahassee and Palm Beach, Florida, host Margarita Balls to provide for at-risk children in their local communities. The Margarita Society is now the largest charity organization in the world providing gifts for at-risk children.

The Fort Worth Margarita Ball will be held at the Worthington Hotel on November 9th this year. The 2019 Dallas Margarita Ball will be held at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel on November 23rd. The Arlington Margarita Ball will also be held on the 23rd at the Arlington Convention Center.

Vegas Concepts Casino Events is proud to be involved in the ongoing success of the Margarita Society, year after year, and is looking forward to this year’s events.
