Flexibility has remained an ongoing theme during the COVID-19 era as charitable social events have returned to the calendar. These events would have already happened but got new dates because of concerns about surging case numbers from the Omicron variant:
• The masquerade-themed Gala, An Event to Remember, moved from Feb. 19 to May 7 at the Verona Villa in Frisco. Steve Eagar, from Channel 4 KDFW, will emcee. “The safety of our constituents, supporters, and guests during the current omicron surge drove this decision, and we are hopeful that by moving the event to May 7, we will be able to resume the in-person Gala we are all looking forward to enjoying,” said Nicole Garrison, manager of relationship events for the Dallas and Northeast Texas Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

• The Center for Vital Longevity’s 10th Anniversary Dinner, initially scheduled for Jan. 29, was moved to May 20. The event will honor Dr. Denise C. Clark, director of research and distinguished university chair in behavioral and brain sciences. Watch calendar.utdallas.edu for event updates or call Erin Dougherty at (972) 883-3938.
