CADD MYSTERY BRUNCH
Since 2011 CADD has invited the public to its highly successful fundraiser, Eat Your Art Out. The event, sometimes dinner and sometimes brunch, promises to be unique, fun, and adventurous - including brunch at a mystery destination followed by a special art tour. Destinations differ but may include a collector’s home, an artist’s studio, a CADD member gallery, or another artistic location in Dallas. Proceeds fund the CADD Scholarship and other CADD Educational Programs.

CADD THIRD THURSDAY HAPPY HOURS
Join us on the Third Thursday of each month at a different CADD member gallery for a Happy Hour! Learn about each gallery's current and upcoming program of exhibitions, meet the gallery owners and their staff, meet the gallery artists, and other like-minded, arts driven professionals in the DFW area. Happy hours are proudly sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery & Arts+Culture Texas Magazine.

CADD BUS TOUR
CADD promotes the visual arts through unique programming and the bus tours have been going strong since 2010. Bus tour participants gain access to artist’s studios, galleries, private collections, art installations, and other extraordinary artistic sites! Participants are provided with bus transportation, snacks, and refreshments. The tours are approximately four hours long.

CADD FUND
CADD FUND is a fun evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. Inspired by similar events throughout the country, CADD FUND collects creative proposals, invites the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then votes for a winner! The event makes possible a high-impact idea that needs the financial support of the Dallas-Fort Worth arts community, and a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.

CADD SCHOLARSHIP
The CADD Scholarship assists graduating senior students from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Visual Arts. The scholarship helps cushion the cost of a higher education in the visual arts. CADD has assisted students with nearly $25,000 in aid since 2007.
