AMICA readies for Denim and Diamonds Gala in October

(ROCKWALL, TX – June 25, 2017) Amica Rockwall is gearing up for their annual Denim and Diamonds gala which benefits local non-profits as well as students through grants and scholarships.

This year, the ladies’ charity was pleased to dole out $40,000 to assist local high school seniors in their educational endeavors.

Rockwall High School graduates Jesse Strong (Texas A&M University), Alexis Bailey (Vanderbilt), Daria Ellis (Collin County College) and Sara Duchak (Collin County College) received scholarship awards as well as Ricardo Esquivel (Eastfield), Francine Herreros (Texas A&M University), Michael Di’Benedetto (Texas Tech) and Xaviera Hernandez (UNT) from Rockwall Heath High School. Scholarship awards were handed out based on merit as well as financial need.

In addition, $23,000 was provided to several area non-profit organizations at a special reception last month at Culpepper Steak House in Rockwall. Representatives from each group had the opportunity to accept their awards and share the mission of their organizations as well as how the money would be helping their cause.

This year, the Denim and Diamonds gala will be held on October 7, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at Culpepper Steak House in Rockwall and tickets are already selling fast. It promises to be an exciting event including a Kendra Scott jewelry pull, BB&T Bank sponsored cigar bar, Bubbles and Bling sponsored by Next Level Chiropractic, complimentary valet provided by The Justin Holland campaign, and an Alliance Bank red carpet. Guests will get to dance the night away to live music and play Craps, Blackjack and Texas Hold’em at the event.

“Our annual Denim and Diamonds Gala is Amica’s way to raise money for our community through local charities and scholarships for graduating seniors,” states Jennifer Rodden. Along with gala co-chair Kristen Chip, Rodden is spearheading this year’s gala and is excited about the event, “It is a wonderful and fun evening for all who attend!”
