Signature Events

Each year, YTAC hosts a series of premier signature events. These events are a great way to meet other Young Professionals, learn about the organization, enjoy delicious food & drink and raise money for a great cause! This year we are super excited to host 4 signature events – Chili Cook Off, Drive Away Golf Tournament, BubblyQ and STRUT Fashion Show.

Chili Cook-Off for a Cure

Held on Saturday, April 13th
at Four Corners Brewery

You know what they say, “If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the Kitchen”! At Chili Cook-Off, teams comprised of YTAC supporters and beneficiaries bring the heat to win the best Chili or Queso recipe in town. During the event, guests can sample and vote on their favorite chili and queso teams, enjoy live music, and extinguish the heat from the samples with cold beer and margaritas.

A team of judges comprised of local celebrities will award prizes for the best tasting chili and queso in addition to other categories including team spirit, crowd favorite and cutest dog. This is known to be YTAC’s most family and dog friendly event we host throughout the year!

STRUT Holiday Party

Thursday, December 5th at

With four years under our belt, STRUT continues to be one of YTAC’s signature events introducing our carefully selected local DFW beneficiaries. STRUT stands for Striving to Resolve, Unite, and Triumph, and this year we plan to do exactly that. STRUT begins with the survivor’s strut highlighting our selected beneficiaries and ended with a professional show donning the latest trends curated by Tootsies. This year we will combine our fashion show and holiday check presentation party. Join us to honor our beneficiaries, view the crafted looks, enjoy holiday cocktails & light bites, and celebrate YTAC Dallas’ check presentation.
