April 7, 2018 — Dallas, TX

Family Gateway will host its first family fundraiser, DAY to PLAY, presented by Bank of America, on Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 1 to 4 p.m. 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.

DAY to PLAY 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 community service, including a basic overview of the scope of families who are experiencing or are near homelessness in Dallas.

A Family Pass is $50 and includes admission for 4 people. Additional guests are $5 each. Children two years of age and under are free. Attendees can also sponsor a $50 Family Pass for a family affected by homelessness to attend.

Join us at 1 p.m. on April 7th!
