Annual Teen Formal


The Dallas Teens invite you to New York, NY - an evening of dinner and dancing with a special presentation honoring this year's graduating seniors. Sabbath services will take place at Unity Church at 2pm (the normal meeting location of the Dallas congregation), and the dinner/dance will take place at the same location as last year -just five minutes' drive from services: Embassy Suites Dallas Park Central. We've secured a hotel rate of $105 (King) or $109 (Doubles) which includes a full cook-to-order breakfast and an Evening Manager's Reception daily for registered hotel guests. Less costly hotels (Motel 6 and Comfort Suites) are located within easy walking distance of Embassy Suites.

We urge you to book your room at the Embassy Suites at your earliest convenience as this hotel gets booked quite quickly and although we have a courtesy hold, we are not guaranteeing a block of rooms. When making reservations, please ask for the COGWA Teen Formal rate.

Regional teen and adult basketball games will take place the following day at an athletic complex minutes away. Teens from outside the region who whould like to participate in basketball on Sunday should contact Andy Burnett at or phone (214) 548-4902, to be placed on a team.
