The Yellow Rose Gala Foundation was first established in April 1986, the year of
the Texas Sesquicentennial by founders Dee and Jimmy Wynne shortly after
Dee’s diagnosis with multiple sclerosis. From its establishment in 1986-2001 the
gala netted over $5 million dollars for multiple sclerosis research. One of the
premier galas of Dallas, the Yellow Rose Gala was known for its lavish affair as
well as famous entertainment. In 2001 the Eagles, Stevie Nicks and Trisha
Yearwood played at the Gala, an event to remember that netted $2 million in that
Following Dee Wynne’s passing and in honor of her memory, the Foundation has
been reestablished. The Yellow Rose Gala Foundation is an active 501(c)(3) that
has the drive and vision to forever rid the world of MS. Through this initiative the
Yellow Rose Gala Foundation is partnering with the National MS Society where
100% of the net proceeds raised will go directly to Progressive MS research.
The 2016, 30th Anniversary Gala will be an evening to remember, featuring
outstanding entertainment, auctions, and raffles that made the original Gala so
memorable. CultureMap recently listed the Yellow Rose Gala as one of the top 12
spring social events you do not want to miss in 2016.
The Yellow Rose Gala Foundation can only achieve success with the assistance of
generous donations from members of the community like yourself. We would like
to ask you to join in the cause and support the Yellow Rose Gala by providing an
In-Kind donation for our live auction, silent auction, raffle or gift bags.
Thank you for your consideration and generosity. We look forward to your
partnership with the Yellow Rose Gala Foundation. Finding a cure for multiple
sclerosis starts with you!
