Our annual gala is more exciting than ever. We will transport guests back to the exciting atmosphere of the Rat Pack era with music, comedy, and the camaraderie of three legendary friends that made history on the stage of the Las Vegas Sands Hotel, Copa showroom. The formal attired evening will include complimentary valet-parking, welcome CopaCocktail, including two complimentary premium drinks per guest. There will be a full Vegas-style Casino, passed hors d'oeuvres, amazing silent auction, and a seated chef's Dinner with wine pairing. When the unrivaled City House Live Auction ends it will be followed by America's three most sought-after Rat Pack Impersonators performing in the industry today, including a special appearance by Susan Griffith (Pulp Fiction and Marilyn and Me), the top Marilyn Monroe impersonator in the world.
If that’s not enough this incredible show will be backed by Texas-native band leader and trumpet player extraordinaire Rodney Booth, and his orchestra. Rodney has performed with many major recording artists such as Lou Rawls, Nancy Wilson, Dionne Warwick, Ella Fitzgerald, Marvin Hamlisch, Ray Charles, Natalie Cole and Al Green, to name a few. And when the "Pack" retires from the stage, Rodney's incredible band will light up the dance floor making this one of the most memorable nights of your life. This year’s Gala Chairs are Dan & Toni Hunt (FC Dallas and Model Behaviors ; Co-Chairs, Chris & Laurie Graham-King (Stylist, Fashion Consultant & TV Personality).

We've Been Helping Homeless Teens for Nearly 30 Years!
City House was founded by two Plano ISD school teachers, sadly inspired and driven by one teenager sleeping in his pickup truck, another living in a vacant building, and another bringing her clothes to school in a garbage bag. In 1988, City House opened its doors to its first residents. What began as a six-bed shelter has grown into a four-home, 48-beds, multi-faceted agency that provides residential and non-residential services to more than 500 children, young adults and their families each year.
The mission of City House is to provide emergency shelter and transitional residential services to children and young adults who are in need due to abuse, neglect or homelessness.
