The second annual Heart of Dallas Fast Pitch has been announced to take place on Wednesday, November 16, 2016. The Heart of Dallas Young Professionals (HODYP) invite all local nonprofits that support projects or programming dedicated to youth (youth sports, children’s health and education, and family support) to apply.
The HODYP Steering Committee will select the finalists after reviewing all applications. Finalists will be announced Monday, October 31, 2016. Chosen finalists will have the chance to participate in the Heart of Dallas Fast Pitch, offering a three-minute live on-stage performance, or ‘pitch’, to convince the panel of judges and audience why their organization deserves up to $100,000 in grant dollars to help them achieve their mission, vision, and goals.
Dallas Stars Captain Jamie Benn will receive this year’s Community Excellence Award at the Fast Pitch event. This award honors a professional athlete who has made an impact on the field and positive difference in their community. In 2015, $10,000 was awarded to Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki for his charitable and philanthropic contribution with The Dirk Nowitzki Foundation.
$50 for event attendee
$25 for nonprofit employee
