Celebrated annually, the TACA Silver Cup Award recognizes two individuals for their outstanding volunteer leadership and contributions to the arts in North Texas. The TACA Silver Cup Award Luncheon serves as a unique opportunity to honor these individuals and gather the region’s civic and cultural leaders, patrons, and volunteers in support of distinguished leadership and volunteerism in the arts.

Jennifer Burr Altabef

A civic volunteer who currently serves as the chair of the Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts Executive Board and the chair of the Board of Trustees of the Dallas Theater Center, Jennifer Burr Altabef is also a member of the Board of Trustees of SMU.

Altabef is the immediate past chair of the Board of Directors of North Texas Public Broadcasting (KERA), and also serves on the boards of the NPR Foundation, AT&T Performing Arts Center, Global Fund for Children, and Big Thought. She is a previous chair of the Dallas Zoological Society and SMU’s University Libraries Executive Board.

A recipient of Southern Methodist University’s Distinguished Alumni Award, she will receive Texas Appleseed’s Good Apple Award jointly with her husband in November 2021. Ms. Altabef is a member of Charter 100 in Dallas. Before devoting herself full-time to civic and philanthropic involvement, Ms. Altabef practiced law in Dallas for 28 years.

She and her husband Peter have two children.  Daughter Hayley is a Chicago-based attorney and son Will is a candidate for admission to the bar in Texas.

Larry Angelilli

Larry Angelilli has been involved in the Dallas arts community since 1999, including terms as President of the Board of Trustees of the Dallas Theater Center (DTC), and Chairman of the Finance Committee for the AT&T Performing Arts Center.  He was instrumental in the DTC’s move to the Performing Arts Center and has been deeply involved in the financial performance of both organizations.  He is currently the Chief Financial Officer of Dallas-based MoneyGram International Corporation.

During the COVID pandemic, Angelilli has effectively navigated the many financial challenges that have confronted the arts community in Dallas as well as his employer and looks forward to the bright future that lies ahead for both.

He and his wife Anne have three grown children and two grandchildren.
