This year, Mayor's Star Council is thrilled to be working with the Marcus Graham Project (MGP), a Dallas-based non-profit, co-founded by Lincoln Stephens and Larry Yarrell, who believe in the power of marketing BIG ideas.  Dallas, is certainly not a stranger to BIG ideas and BIG thinking.  MGP empowers young adults to think BIG each year with their iCR8 Summer Boot Camp, which trains young leaders with an interest in the advertising, media and marketing industry.  MGP has recently partnered with the Mayor's Rising Star Council (MRSC) to develop a similar experiential learning initiative for its high school seniors.   The program, officially launched a few weeks ago at the first meeting of the MRSC students this school year. These students will finish the program with real life experience creating, designing and executing a multi-faceted marketing campaign to highlight their communities, and a portfolio of work they can utilize in their future endeavors. The program is supported by a recent grant by the South Dallas - Fair Park Trust Fund and a matched donation by Microsoft. 

MGP will be holding their annual masquerade gala, Lavender Hill, in Dallas on October 31st.   MSC's own Trey Bowles, Founder of the Dallas Entrepreneur Center and the Mayor's Star Council, is serving on this year's host committee. The final date to reserve your seat at the table of change is 10/28.  We can say from experience that this is a great time for an amazing cause.

The event is sponsored by PepsiCo, Moet Hennessey and D CEO Magazine and will also honor MGP's outstanding board members, agency partners and alumni.
