Dallas Influencers in Sports and Entertainment (DISE) is unveiling a new brand and logo, recruiting the rising generation of North Texas sports and entertainment industry leaders to connect and fuel bold social change. DISE, formerly known as Heart of Dallas Young Professionals, hosted a happy hour networking event at Deep Ellum Distillery on July 19 to launch its new brand and grow its membership.
DISE takes an innovative approach to networking – blending together sports and entertainment industry leaders to make philanthropic impact. DISE provides unique professional development opportunities, cultivates meaningful experiences and relationships, and encourages a community focus of giving back. Its nonprofit arm, the Heart of Dallas Foundation, supports the health and education of children through volunteerism and funding, contributing more than $532,500 to 28 North Texas nonprofits since its inception in 2014.
Sports and entertainment leaders mixed and mingled for a happy hour featuring special remarks from Geoff Moore of Team Envy, sharing insights on the esports landscape in DFW and beyond. Chad Houser of Café Momentum spoke about how DISE funding is inspiring brighter futures for North Texas youth.
