United TRIBUTE


Janet & Joe Mulroy Honored with
2015 Dr. Bettye Myers Humanitarian Award

Councilman Joey Hawkins returned again to co-MC with local lawyer Jill Jester at our third annual United TRIBUTE on Saturday, January 17th 2015. This event celebrates the successes and achievements of United Way of Denton County's many community partners, whose donations and volunteerism drive all of our Community Impact and Collective Impact Initiatives. Dancing to live music provided by DFW dance band Razzmatazz, Councilman Greg Johnson of Verus Real Estate Advisors and partner Stephanie Martinez triumphed as our Dancing With Our Stars champion. We honored Janet & Joe Mulroy with the second presentation of our Dr. Bettye Myers Humanitarian Award in recognition of their incredible generosity in time and resources to help us collectively improve lives in Denton County through our constantly updated Community Needs Assessment and the Denton County Citizen's Council on Mental Health.

On Saturday January 18th 2014, we hosted our second annual United TRIBUTE at the Marriott. Reigning champion Joey Hawkins returned as co-Masters of Ceremonies alongside Krista Villareal-Moore. In our Dancing With Our Stars competition, DATCU VP Melanie Vest and her partner David Morales won the coveted mirror-ball trophy!

United Way of Denton County's inaugural United TRIBUTE was held on Saturday, January 26th 2013 at the Marriott Hotel at Champions Circle. The evening featured Jake Pavelka as our Master of Ceremonies, fantastic live music from The Vintage 15, and our very first Dancing with our Stars contest.  The night's entertainment closed with an awards ceremony honoring five of our campaign stars, recognizing the winning couple from United Way of Denton County's Dancing with our Stars, and dedicating the United Way of Denton County Humanitarian Award to Dr. Bettye Myers.
