Achievement Center of Texas has a number of events that it hosts throughout the year, some of them at the center itself, larger ones at off-site locations. Some of these events help us raise funds for our center, making it possible for us to provide outstanding service and educational opportunities for our students. All of these events are for the purpose of uplifting and celebrating our students with special needs.
The Summer Show is a talent show that is held at the end of the summer. This show celebrates the artistic achievements of our students. This year's show will include a student production of The Lion King, including student narration, acting, dancing and singing. The set was also made by our students, with the help and supervision of their teachers.
The Lion King production will be held at the center on Friday, August 18th, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to watch the program where students showcase their talent and interests. Admission is free, but there is a suggested donation at $5.00 per person who attends.
Please RSVP below or sign up to volunteer with us. This is a big production, so we need all the support we can get! Click the buttons below.
Other Summer Shows have brandished some of our students’ achievements in their Hip Hop Dance Class.
You can see the dance crew, ReACTion, strut their stuff at the 2016 show below.
The Annual ACTion Walk/Run is held in the fall after the North Texas weather cools a bit. This year’s date is set for October 28, 2017 at Holford Park in Garland.
Several teams setup for a little friendly competition in fund raising. Sign up to be one of those teams today!
You can also sign up to sponsor the event as a corporation, business or nonprofit. We would be happy to partner with you.
Special Arts Festival
The Special Arts Festival is a day of hands-on fun and activity! Our students work all year long to perform here. At the Special Arts Festival, we have live entertainment spotlighting our students along with students from other programs.
Attendees participate in activities and take home their finished product. You never know who will be there but our special guest, partner and founder John Bramblitt is always offering guidance and hands-on painting advice.
The Special Arts Festival takes place in early Spring, usually in March. Please check back for a set date for this event.
Each Spring, we host a gala, an art auction, the proceeds of which contribute to the center’s overall goal of helping our students with special needs reach their highest potential. Over the years, our galas have had various themes.
The theme for the 2017 gala was a Speak Easy, where our guests attended a 1920s-themed party. You can order photos from last year's event by clicking the button below.
Don’t miss out on this wonderful event that’s not only fun but also assists a good cause.
Check back for information about upcoming galas, which usually occur in April.
