The inaugural ball will feature a silent auction, music, and comedic performances featuring the DFW’s most influential celebrities, business owners, and athletes.

Proceeds from the event will help build a state-of-the-art “aurtism” facility in Dallas for the National Aurtism Foundation (NAF). Founded by Kenneth Harrison, NAF operates locations in Las Vegas and Arizona to provide affordable therapy and art therapy to individuals navigating autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental health disabilities.

The nonprofit foundation also provides resources such as rent and grocery assistance programs.

According to Harrison’s team, the ball will mark the first time the luxury car company has partnered with the African American community to host an event on its showroom floor. The Fort Worth native traveled to Italy to meet with key Lamborghini executives to help bring his vision to life.

“This event is a huge step in getting corporate America to do more for the communities that they operate in,” said Harrison, who also owns and operates the multimillion-dollar H Investments firm. “I am also honored for the opportunity to expand the National Aurtism Foundation’s reach in helping individuals blessed with autism and their families.”

The Lamborghini Ball will take place Thursday, October 20, 6pm at the Lamborghini Dallas showroom, located at 601 S Central Expy.
