If you loved the Beatles or better yet Dallas’ own Hard Day’s Night, then you’ll want to put a hold on Saturday, October 27. The HDN foursome will be appearing at the Westin Galleria to benefit MakeAWay Charities.
The ever-gorgeous Pat Smith and her dancing husband Emmitt will be the honorary chairs for this fundraiser that “has helped over 1,000 families in need of a helping hand to get by in hard times.”
If MakeAWay is new on your non-profit lists, makes sense. Established by Kathy and Mike Hayes, it’s only a couple of years old and was founded to directly assist single-parent-headed families in distress. They provide “direct assistance to these and other hard-working families in financial catastrophe so the families can stay intact, in their own homes, and out of debt and poverty.
“Without the assistance of MakeAWay Charities, those families would have been facing a devastating foreclosure, missing school and medical appointments due to unreliable transportation, and putting single parents in a position where those who depend on them most are put at risk due to inability to pay rent, an electric bill, or for a car repair.”
Starting at 6 p.m., the 60’s themed “Get Groovy With MakeAWay” presented by Generational Equity will include dinner, dancing and, of course, auctions (silent and lively) for everything from Gringo boots, a Cowboys helmet donated and signed by Tony Dorsett to a trip to Paris hosted by La Madeleine founder Patrick Esquerre.
