0

The Trinity Chapter of The Links, Inc. is proud to announce the celebration of its 10th Anniversary of its signature “Diamonds and Sneakers” Gala.

The Gala will be held March 4 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel at 6 p.m. The evening of diamonds and sneakers will include dinner and dancing with the popular David White Band. The gala supports an enrichment program developed by the Trinity Links in 2000 for Dallas Independent School District elementary and middle school girls called SoSMAART. The programs are held at Thomas L. Marsalis Elementary School and William Hawley Atwell Law Academy.

SoSMAART, which stands for “Students Set on Math, the Arts, Aviation, Reading and Technology,” is designed to stimulate girls’ interest in the STEM fields of study and broaden their career objects in life. Over 1,000 girls have benefited from the SoSMAART program over these years, and Trinity has seen tremendous results with these young ladies. Trinity Links has received many awards and recognition for the successful program.

The gala also supports the Scholarships for Excellence awards each year for deserving high school graduates who will pursue higher education.

Sonya Hoskins serves as president of the Trinity Chapter of The Links, Inc. with over 50 active members.

“We are so excited about celebrating our 10th year of the Diamond and Sneakers Gala and appreciate all of our supporters who have attended over the years,” Hoskins said.

The highlight of the evening will be the Diamond and Sneaker contest as participants strut their stunning and creative sneakers across the room.

Sponsorship opportunities and tickets for the Diamond and Sneaker Gala are available. For more information, visit www.trinitylinksinc.org.
