“Alexa, play ‘Congratulations.'” | COSIGN Awards 2018 Was A Huge Success

All photos by: Ian Ribail | @ir_shoots 

Last night, we held our second-annual COSIGN Awards Dinner & Gala at the Crowne Plaza Hotel – Downtown Dallas. Hosted by Alanna Sarbia, host of “Good Morning Texas,” it was THE place to be in the Dallas area on Saturday night, with the best of the best in the city in attendance. DJ Phife provided the soundtrack and visual presentations for the evening, and kept the party going all night.

The evening began with a networking reception in the foyer. A dozen vendor booths greeted guests upon entry, along with a step and repeat banner with 97.9 The Beat on the red carpet interviewing the nominees and guests. From there, the attendees were ushered to the photo booth, sponsored by The Social Production Photo Booth and then on to the open bar, sponsored by Courvoisier. Everyone in their best, the men in suits and the ladies in heels and evening dresses, were engulfed by constant camera flashes. We were let in the ballroom around 8 p.m., to a beautiful dinner, and as soon as K.G. blessed the food with a short prayer, everyone dug into their meals.

We also celebrated three amazing women by honoring them with personalized awards for all of their contributions to the city and community.
