Mark your calendars for the annual “Garden of Roses Fashion Gala Platinum Celebration” to be held on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the Texas Motor Speedway Club. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Greater Keller Women’s Club Foundation that in turn awards grants to many charitable organizations in Northeast Tarrant County and scholarships to three Keller ISD seniors from each of the four High Schools.
