ROCKITECTURE 2016 Raises Almost $80,000

On October 20, hundreds of partygoers joined us at the newest jewel in the Uptown skyline, McKinney and Olive, for a memorable evening. With delicious hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, guests enjoyed creating a photographic flipbook and analysis by our "lipsologist" as they bid on more than 150 silent auction items ranging from art and furniture to accessories and one-of-a-kind experiences. All in all, the event raised $78,500 in support of DCFA educational programming, including walking tours and events, youth programs, and scholarships and traveling fellowships. This year, a portion of the ROCKITECTURE proceeds will benefit the DCFA Diversity in Architecture Scholarship, an effort critical to the future of the design profession.

We owe much gratitude to all who made the event such a special one, especially our sponsors, host committee, and auction donors. Chairs Diane Collier and Kevin Curley and their task force, along with the constant leadership of Board President Veletta Forsythe-Lill and unsung support from Jeff Forbes and Nancy Rome, made the event an incredible evening that we will all remember for a very long time. DCFA owes them--and everyone involved--a huge debt of gratitude.

Thank you!
