The first Lone Star event for The Common Thread for the Cure…as big as Texas.

This is the first fundraising industry event in Texas for The Common Thread for the Cure, an organization founded to support those in the A&D and furnishings industries who are battling breast cancer.

Our inaugural event is set for September 26 in Waco, Texas, and precedes Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The event targets the Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio markets and provides a fun and extraordinary opportunity for the architectural and design communities to come together statewide for a day to:

  • Raise awareness of The Common Thread for the Cure so those affected by breast cancer within our industry may utilize the resources available
  • Raise money to fund and distribute more Helping Hand Grants
