Annual Kellog Soiree
Each year the Kellogg and Northwestern University alumni clubs host our Annual Soiree to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Lonestar. This amazing event brings together business leaders, friends and spouses for a night of dancing, dinner, drinks and entertainment. There is a silent auction and a chance to win some fun prizes. Dance the night away with live music and enjoy open bar & a seated dinner.
Each year we choose a theme for the event. This past event theme was “Light the Night, Wear your best Whites”.
The event is a great way to engage with current friends as well as meet new friends in the DFW community, while giving back to a worthy cause. We hope to see you at the next annual Soiree!
Executive Speaker Series
For our senior level executive club members, we offer an executive speaker series. These small group meetings are held in the offices of our top corporations in the DFW area. Recently, Microsoft hosted us in their Irving Office. We had the rare and exclusive opportunity to hear from Sean Alexander, the leader of Micrsoft’s AI Accelerator Team and responsible for cross-Microsoft AI orchestration.
Sean had just completed a 30+ day worldwide tour and shared with us his insights and learnings from around the globe.
We continue to host these outstanding speaker series events and hope you will join the club in time for our next one!
KEllogg DFW Women's Network
We also have a powerful women’s network, which hosts some must attend programs. Recently we held a workshop and spa weekend with Sally Blount, Kellogg ’92 Dean, entitled Women Living Lives of Impact. This groundbreaking event allowed attendees to help design and shape future female-centered Kellogg programming while supporting the local DFW alumni club.
