A few big philanthropy events coming to Dallas....

KRLD unveils list of participants for Restaurant Week

KRLD has published the eagerly anticipated list of participants for its 10th annual Restaurant Week, taking place this year August 13 to 19, during which diners can get a 3-course dinner at some fairly high-end places for $35 per person.

You want to participate because it gives an opportunity to people who normally might not be able to eat at your restaurant," says Victory Tavern manager Victor Rojas. "Plus it benefits charity [the North Texas Food Bank and the Lena Pope Home], so you're generating some good. And you get recognition and notoriety for that."

Life is good Pumpkin Festival - Dallas.


The 2007 Life is good Pumpkin Festival features a fun-filled day and night of live music, delicious food, and lighthearted homegrown activities such as scarecrow stuffing, pumpkin catapults, gourd bowling, and treasure hunts. People of all ages pour into Flagpole Hill, the premier park at White Rock Lake, to soak up the good vibes and the spectacular sight of more than 10,000 pumpkins aglow in the night.

The Dallas Pumpkin Festival builds upon the success of the past three years in Boston, where over 100,000 people attended the 2006 festival. Proceeds benefit Central Dallas Ministries and supports programs to help children who face unfair challenges rediscover joy in their lives.
