The event is held to announce Chapter level award winners, who will move on to compete at the Global level. And the accompanying entertainment makes it one heck of a date night or networking opportunity complete with photo sessions in the Oval Office, tours of the newly opened baseball exhibit, entertainment from The Enablers -- all while mingling over drinks and outstanding appetizers..

Tour “Baseball: America’s Presidents, America’s Pastime,” which includes more than 125 artifacts donated from presidential libraries, the White House, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and private collections. See signed balls from Hall of Famers such as Joe DiMaggio and a scrapbook filled with autographed baseball cards and photos assembled by a young George W. Bush and his brother Neil. The exhibit also features a video highlighting the history of presidents playing baseball and the tradition of the presidential first pitch.
The Enablers is one of the hottest and most extraordinary dance bands in the Metroplex. The Enablers cover a wide range of styles: classic dance music, current dance music, Top 40, current and classic alternative rock, harder-edged rock, dance/techno, and even a little hip-hop.

First UTD CoreNet Southwest scholarship recipient named
University of Texas Dallas Junior Naa Ashardey Sackey-Addo is the first named recipient of the CoreNet Southwest UTD Real Estate Program Scholarship.
Naa is studying business administration with a concentration in real estate, and expects to graduate from the UTD Naveen Jindal School of Management in 2016.
CoreNet Southwest established the endowment for student scholarships and fellowships with a $10,000 donation in December, and will make equal payments each year until the Chapter has contributed $50,000, a sum which will be matched by UTD. At that point the endowment will be self sustaining.
According to Gensler Principal Ted Kollaja, president of CoreNet Southwest, the Chapter stages the CoreNet Southwest Golf Experience, an annual tournament, to raise funds for the endowment. This year's tournament is scheduled for Oct. 5th at Las Colinas Country Club.
