While some may scoff that nothing happens in the sizzling days of summer, there’s still plenty going on thanks to air-conditioning, shady venues and cooler times of the day. In addition to Equest Blue Ribbon Gala on Saturday, June 4, in the Al Hill Jr. Arena at Texas Horse Park and La Fiesta De Las Seis Banderas events during the week of June 7, there are the 4th of July Parades.
But unlike the outdoor 4th of July parades, there is a parade that is strictly held in the cool common areas of NorthPark Center for 17 days. It’s the Parade Of Playhouses and this year will mark the 26th year that NorthPark has hosted the Dallas CASA fundraiser to “raise critical funds and awareness for Dallas CASA and the child victims of abuse or neglect served by the agency.”
In addition to Presenting Sponsor Crest Cadillac /Infiniti/Volvo returning with KDC serving as grand marshal, “longtime and much-loved builders” LRO Residential, Crest Cadillac/Infiniti/Volvo and Amy Butscher with Butcher Construction will once again have their newest cottages on display along with a list of other builders and designers.
During the run of the playhouses from Friday, July 15, to Sunday, July 31, raffle tickets will be available for purchase with proceeds supporting children who benefit from the Dallas CASA advocacy program.
In meantime, if you would like to offer to create a playhouse or sponsor one, check with Michelle Mai at 469.547.9456.
