A Story of Perseverance: Hadiyah-Nicole Green Shares Her Path to a Million-Dollar Research Grant
March 8, 2016

Before moving to Dallas, I was always involved with volunteering projects; working with the Catholic Charities creating a program to educate high school students on domestic violence, serving food at events for the NO/AIDS task force, even filing X-Rays at a local hospital.  After moving to Dallas, I was looking for some groups to get involved with and stumbled upon the Legal Hospice of Texas somewhat by accident.  I had become friends with the former volunteer coordinator, Harvey Mireles, after attending a Heat of the Night Casino event with several mutual friends.   I told him, if he ever needed help to let me know since it just so happens that I lived across the street from the Legal Hospice Office.

The first event I participated in as a volunteer for the Legal Hospice was the Black Tie Affair in 2013.  Several other volunteers and I from Legal Hospice were in charge of taking admission tickets.  Getting to dress up and watching the fabulous, charitable people of Dallas hardly felt like volunteering.  At the end of the night several of us were called to help with the silent auction, it was the first time I’d ever done data entry in a ball gown!  It was worth it because the event raised so much money for the Legal Hospice of Texas and many other deserving charitable organizations.

The second event I volunteered at was a last minute request.  Harvey needed some help setting up for the retirement party of the former Executive Director, Roger Wedell.  Since the event was a block from my apartment, I did a quick costume change, and ran down the street to help.  It was such a wonderful evening and was really the first time I got to see what a loving, inclusive organization Legal Hospice of Texas is.  The respect given to their retiring Director and the speeches from people who lives he had impacted were touching.  It was also so very nice the number of people who thanked me for helping out, it was the most appreciation I had felt in a volunteer role (and all I really did was set up some food and have guests sign-in).

I think my favorite experience was helping the day after the Black Tie event in 2014 with auction pick up.  I didn’t sign-up in time to volunteer at the event (sign-up early because everyone wants to be there for the glamour), but they needed people to help out the day after.  Another volunteer and I were signing out the auction items from the night before.  Seeing all the sleepy eyed affluent people of Texas the day after the gala coming to collect their purchases made for a morning of fun people watching.  Some of the patrons had forgotten which items they had purchased and were surprised when we came back with their items and their signed receipts.   One couple in particular broke out in laughter when we handed them a rather interesting sculpture they had spent quite a bit of money to purchase.  “At least we know the money is going to a good cause, I think we’ll place this over the toilet”.  Though it wasn’t a glamour volunteer job, we had a lot of fun with it.

If you are considering volunteering for Legal Hospice of Texas, know you are giving time to a wonderful organization full of amazing people.  Always be flexible, because in the world of high fashion events and black tie galas, you never know what might happen.  Be it last minute runs to get extra ice, finding a safety pin because a patron’s dress strap has broken, or helping move a wall so a Mercedes can be driven into a ballroom, ever thing you do is going to ensure that people who have no one else to turn to have Legal Hospice of Texas.  Final word of wisdom – always wear comfortable shoes and a smile on your face.
