It is that time of year again, and the Otis and Rosie Brown Foundation is excitedly preparing for our marquis event, the 4th Annual ExtraordinaryIs Gala - for the first time in Arlington, Texas! We hope that you will join us as a sponsor for this very special event in the fun & fabulous Cholula Room at Globe Life Park as we once again gather to celebrate everyday people, using ordinary resources to make an EXTRAORDINARY difference in the lives of those around them.

This year's gala will be held on Friday, November 9, 2018  and with Friday being a new night for our event, we certainly need YOU to help it go off without a hitch! If you've been to the gala before, you know it is truly an inspiring event, where everyone feels like family. Our wonderful emcee from last year, Mr. Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight fame, will be joining us again and this year we are thrilled to introduce you to our keynote speaker, Rodeo World Champion, Mr. Tyson Durfey! We know you're going to be just as inspired as we are by these guys in addition to the scholars and organizations we've had the opportunity to support.

Below are details about sponsorship opportunities. We also welcome donations for the event auction. We look forward to working with our sponsors to help promote their involvement in the gala and build relationships that will grow in the future. Please contact one of us directly with any questions. Thank you for your time, consideration and support.
