About Wings of Spring
Wings of Spring: A Celebration of Literacy has raised nearly $3 million to provide free education and life-skills programs to thousands of immigrant and refugee families across Dallas. This year's event will take place on Tuesday, April 26th at AT&T Performing Arts Center Annette Strauss Square. Named Dallas' Best Outdoor Venue by the Dallas Observer, we are so excited to use this beautiful venue for our outdoor celebration.
The annual Wings of Spring gala is a significant source of support for Literacy Achieves. We greatly appreciate your partnership in this life-changing work. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of our students, their families, and the greater community.
The 2019 Wings of Spring gala will take place Monday, April 1 in the exquisite Stern Chapel at Temple Emanu-El.
The evening will include a cocktail reception and dinner buffet followed by the Piano Battle featuring internationally acclaimed pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis.
The Piano Battle show is divided into several rounds, each featuring a certain musical style. The duo will go head-to-head, enchanting the audience with a variety of classical pieces. Our audience will be the judge with everyone invited to vote on the pianists’ performances and eventually crown the winner.
It promises to be a fun show with lots of audience engagement!
We are delighted that community leader and longtime Literacy Achieves supporter Gayle Johansen will serve as Honorary Chair.
While balancing family life with a successful real estate career, Gayle still dedicates time every week to her students at Literacy Achieves. Her passion to make a difference is inspired by her own father, who with his mother and sister, was returned to Poland three times before being allowed entry at Ellis Island in 1914.
