Nov. 16, 2017 – Family Gateway will host its first family fundraiser, DAYtoPLAY, presented by Bank of America, at AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Annette Strauss Artist Square, honoring the late founder of Family Gateway, former Dallas Mayor Annette Strauss. The simple purpose of the event is to give children a day to just be kids – to make new friends and have fun while offering parents the opportunity to introduce or reinforce the importance of helping others.
DAYtoPLAY will bring families together for a day filled with activities and discoveries geared specifically to children. From lawn games and yoga to live music and crafts, entertainment will be paired with a focus on volunteerism and service, including a basic overview of the scope of families who are experiencing or are near homelessness in the community.
Proceeds from DAYtoPLAY will support Family Gateway’s mission to provide stability and life-changing supportive services to children and families affected by homelessness in Dallas.
A $50 Family Pass includes admission for 4 people. Additional guests are $5 each. Children 2 years of age and younger are admitted free of charge. Another way to help is to purchase a $50 Family Pass for a family affected by homelessness.
