DALLAS - What has become an annual tradition, the 4th Regiment, Texas State Guard, provided support to the organizers of the Dallas Margarita Society Ball, Sheraton Hotel, Dallas, Texas, November 21-22, 2015. This charity event collects toys for at risk children of the North Texas community.
The regiment assisted the 13,000 guests with floor plan information, directions to various events at the hotel, ticket collection, and elevator and escalator operations.
The soldiers also conducted communications planning, risk assessments, and first aid.
Participation in community service events such as the Margarita Ball is an essential part of the Texas State Guard mission and exemplifies the Texas State Guard motto "Texans Serving Texans."
Other groups assisting in the event were the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Dallas Police Department, EMS/EMT Medical Team, and Texas State Guard units from the 19th Regiment and the Texas Medical Brigade.
