The Collective invites you to celebrate its sixth annual Coats & Cocktails signature event to raise awareness for those in need. Coats & Cocktails is a coat drive to collect outerwear for women, men and especially children during the holiday season. We invite you to bring new or gently used coats and outerwear for donation to Austin Street Center, an emergency shelter dedicated to the needs of those less fortunate in our city.
Although all donations are welcome, THERE IS A GREAT DEMAND FOR CHILDREN'S COATS. With your help, our goal this year is to surpass the 650 coats we collected last year. In addition to your coat donation, a portion of ticket proceeds will be reserved for donation.
**Please Note: This event is expected to sell out. Purchase your tickets now to guarantee admission. We will only sell tickets at the door if we are not at capacity.**
This year, we aim to elevate your experience at Altitude Dallas located inside the posh W Hotel. Altitude boasts glittering views of the Dallas skyline and glamorous, contemporary decor. Experience our beloved city from 33 floors above.
Begin the evening at our Cocktail Reception. Guests will be greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne (first 200 to arrive) and enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres while they last. Take advantage of our interactive Photo Booth and instantly share your experience with your social network (please tag us in all photos/selfies using #CoatsAndCocktailsDFW).
Guests can look forward to pleasant surprises as the night progresses. Our musical maestros of the night will be providing the perfect backdrop for an evening of good music, dancing, cocktails, and philanthropy.
We believe in giving back to the community. There is no better time than the holiday season and we look forward to sharing this night of giving with you.
[ DRESS CODE: COCKTAIL ]
For guys, this dress code calls for a dark suit and tie. For women, short dresses that are party-ready. When in doubt, wear a little black dress and dress it up with fun jewelry—or, if you’d rather wear color, opt for something bright and feminine.
Foolproof Outfit: A Little Black Dress for women and a Suit/Blazer/Slacks for men.
Valet parking will be available at the W Hotel entrance for $15. Additionally, there are several unaffiliated lots in the vicinity for under $10. Street parking is limited.
