As folks are returning from summer sojourns and are unpacking their Horizons and unloading the family Newmar, their postal carriers are filling their snail-mailboxes with invitations galore for the “final four” months of 2016. What a great reason to get a new letter opener!
From the famous faces (Condoleezza Rice, Jerry Seinfeld, Jenna Bush Hager, Donna Karan, Venus Williams, etc.) due to chat it up for nonprofits to the walk/runs that will have early-morning sneakers pacing around the area, it seems like almost every day has something for everybody. Of course, there will be luncheons, fashion shows, black-tie galas, auctions, awards, parades and more cocktail parties than a bartender can shake and strain.
The final sprint of 2016 for North Texas nonprofits is at the starting line. For the faint of heart, advice: do not look at the MySweetCharity Calendar’s next four months. But on the other hand, if you’re into fundraising, fashion, food and fun, then the Calendar is a feast for the imagination and your accountant, who will gladly deduct your donation at tax time.
BTW, if you have a fundraiser that hasn’t been posted, submit it here pronto.
‘nother suggestion: Get your tickets now for the activities on your “Must-Attend List,” because you’re not going to be happy with yourself when the “Sold Out” post is published.
