The annual ORIX Foundation Dinner at Sixty-Five Hundred in Dallas raised $221,250 to support charities in the communities where our employees live and work. Over 250 guests attended the dinner and casino night, dressed in popular 80s attire to have a little fun while addressing a serious undertaking. The funds raised will increase our investment in North Texas nonprofit organizations that focus on strengthening vulnerable populations, including impoverished families, children at risk and veterans.
Assistant General Counsel and ORIX Foundation Board Member Nicola Hobeiche received the Volunteer of the Year award for her countless hours of hard work and dedication to our community as a volunteer and board member. She received a $1,000 grant to support a charity of her choice, and is donating the money to adopt an animal at the Dallas Zoo in honor of her friend’s terminally ill son who loves animals.
Please help us recognize Nicola’s achievement, and our very generous sponsors for their support of our mission. With their help we are creating new opportunities for underserved children and families in our community.
