Jordan Roberts is co-chair of The Warren Center’s Art of Music Gala, a one of a kind experience that brings renowned musicians and visual artists together to help children with special needs. At the event, attendees enjoy show stopping performances, original art, dinner and drinks, and a live and silent auction.
She initially learned about the agency through her friends, Courtney Edwards and Ben Smithee, who are long-time supporters of the agency.
When Ben came up with the idea for the Art of Music Gala, Jordan was one of the first he asked to join the committee and she happily accepted.
“I believe in giving your time as well as money to grassroots organizations that are really giving back to the local community,” Jordan said. “I believe we must invest in children because they are our future.”
After joining the Art of Music Committee, Jordan became the co-chair for the event. In this role, she directs the efforts of the planning committee, overseeing recruitment, progress, tasks and timelines.
“This is now my third year to chair the gala and my involvement and passion for The Warren Center has steadily grown,” Jordan said.
As event co-chair, Jordan has played an instrumental role in transforming the Art of Music Gala from just an idea into one of Dallas’ premier charity events that has raised approximately $190,000 for The Warren Center. That equals about 7600 hours of therapy for children with developmental delays and disabilities.
Even with all the growth and success of the Art of Music Gala, Jordan’s favorite thing about The Warren Center is its family-like atmosphere. Not only have the committee members become a part of her family, but she has also had the opportunity to see how The Warren Center’s therapists treat each family they serve like members of their own.
“At the agency, children and families come first. I am so happy to be a part of The Warren Center family,” Jordan said.
Jordan continues to support The Warren Center because she believes in its mission – to advocate, serve and empower the children and families impacted by developmental delays and disabilities.
“The mission speaks to me because I could not imagine what these parents go through every day,” Jordan said. “I am grateful to use my gifts to help change lives for the better.”
