There may be those who think the Slipper Club of Dallas gals are former debs who simply know how to party. Oh, so very wrong. Ages ago, membership was dominated by non-bowing types, who wanted to combine having fun and raising funds.
This past month the Slipper Club board volunteered with Rays Of Light at the Lovers Lane United Methodist Church, where they were “paired with a special needs child and became their mentor and friend for the night. From basketball to puppets to arts and crafts to computer games, it was an enriching experience for both the child and board member.”
Rays Of Light provides free, quality respite care to families with children with special needs. The Slipper Club members are “striving to lend support and relief to these families through our respite care program called ‘Night Lights.’”
Thanks to their Olympic-themed event hosted at Barley House in August, the Club was able to provide close to $3,000 for Rays of Light.
But this is only the beginning of their campaign to assist Rays Of Light. In addition to Night Lights, they’re hoping to top last year’s total of $53,000 that went to I Have A Dream Foundation at their Slipper Club Gala on Saturday, February 4, at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
