Welcome to the Dallas Margarita Society

The Dallas Margarita Society, Inc., (d.b.a. Dallas Children’s Charities) was formed in 1977 when a small group of business acquaintances decided to host a holiday party for associates and friends.

The Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization whose goals are twofold.  The first is to provide at-risk Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex children with gifts at Christmas time and the second is to help those community organizations that work with at-risk children throughout the year.

The Dallas Margarita Ball has grown over the years and is now believed to be the largest annual invitation only charity black tie gala in the world, providing gifts for more than 6,800 at-risk children each year.

The Dallas Children’s Charities is a Key Sponsor of Kids and Cops, a trading card program that, like baseball cards, pictures local heroes – Police Officers, Sheriff Deputies, FBI Agents, and Texas Rangers – along with each Officer’s bio and words of advice to the kids.


When visiting hospitals, schools, and neighborhoods, Officers hand out cards, befriending kids who can now see them as positive, adult role models.  Since 1994, over 7 million cards have been distributed and kids are collecting them all – community outreach that’s pure fun!
