2015 gala web banner - dreams



ISF will have a new title sponsor for its 2015 A Taste of Chamberlain’s ISF Gala to be held on October 30, 2015 at the Belo Mansion and Pavilion in downtown Dallas.  Masergy Communications, Inc. will make a $20,000 contribution to ISF as one of its corporate charities.  Masergy is a prominent communications technology company based in Plano, TX.


As a presenting title sponsor, Masergy’s gift will enable ISF to expand its impact on orphans and youth who have aged out of the foster care system and are seeking to gain a college education.  ISF provides these students with scholarships, mentoring and leadership development.


“It is an honor to have an award-winning company like Masergy as an ISF sponsor,” noted ISF Executive Director Dr. Blair Ritchey.  “We are deeply grateful to CEO Chris MacFarland and the entire Masergy team for their commitment to giving back to the community and helping those less fortunate to find a path to success and achievement.”

Masergy, which provides network, security and communications services to global businesses, was recently given two Gold Awards at the 10th Annual 2015 IT World Awards in the Hot Companies and Best Product and Service categories.  Recognized as one of the best places to work in Dallas, Masergy is not only committed to world-class customer service but to use their corporate success as a platform to make a difference in the greater community.  Charities like ISF are only able to thrive because of partnerships with individuals and businesses that are committed to contributing to the public good.


The Taste of Chamberlain’s ISF Gala presented by Masergy will feature a delicious menu designed by Dallas’ renowned chef Richard Chamberlain, a live and silent auction in one of Dallas’ most historic settings, music and dancing to Dallas’ premier party band Icehouse, and the inspiring stories of ISF’s expanding impact on the lives of its wonderful students.   Honorary Chair for the 2015 Gala is former WFAA-TV anchor and long-time foster care advocate Gloria Campos.  Tickets and sponsorship information are available at the ISF website:  For more information, please contact Executive Director, Dr. Blair Ritchey (
