Details: The 3rd Annual Local Love Awards is a black tie, fundraising gala benefiting Project 16, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that prepares our youth for life and success after high school. Since being founded in 2015 by Dallas-native and 14 year radio/entertainment veteran, Jade “Lady Jade” Burrowes, Project 16 has provided dozens of educational and experiential programs for children and teens throughout the DFW metroplex.

Each year, the Local Love Awards celebrates those individuals who have gone above and beyond in their respective fields to bring exceptional services, contributions and art to Dallas-Fort Worth. This exciting event is to recognize individuals and minority businesses that are often the over looked and forgotten infrastructures, that transform areas into viable communities, and hold those communities together by serving and meeting the needs of the people who live there.

In 2019, we will once again honor those that have consistently been pillars in our community while raising funds to continue providing quality experiences for the children of DFW.

ABOUT

Project 16 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Dallas, Texas and founded by Jade “Lady Jade” Burrowes.

Our mission is to equip and inspire youth ages 10-16 to realize the broad spectrum of educational paths and career options available to them beyond what they may see in their immediate surroundings. Through our programs and community partnerships, we seek to offer up close access, eye-opening experiences and educational tools to help children and teens aspire higher than their circumstances, and to dream big.
