GLFD Continues to Help SPCA of Texas with Furball 2016
 
If we haven’t mentioned to you by now, all of us here at GLFD are eternally grateful for all of you that helped make Project Ruffway a huge success. We presented a check for more than $100,000 to the SPCA of Texas as a result of Project Ruffway.  
Though this is no small amount of money, we do have a little more to go to help ensure the SPCA can obtain their new Emergency Rescue Vehicle. Our goal is to raise an additional $15,000 by the end of the year by partnering with SPCA of Texas for two more great events.
 
First, On Saturday, September 24th, the SPCA will hold their annual black tie fundraiser, Furball www.furballdallas.com, to be held at the Dallas Omni. A table of 10 is $2,000 ($200 per person) and GLFD hopes to organize five tables. You may remember last year that Steve Atkinson helped organize 3 tables on his own for GLFD. For this year, if you wish to sit at a GLFD table (we promise you they will be some of the most fabulous tables at Furball), simply go to www.glfd.org/spca to purchase your ticket for $200. GLFD will take care of the rest through its relationships at the SPCA and ensure that you are indeed sitting with us. 
 
Second, while it’s hard to think of the winter holiday season, SPCA of Texas is already planning for their annual Home for the Holidays at NorthPark Center. One Saturday during the holiday season will be GLFD day and we hope that you will be able to join us. More information will be made available as the date draws closer. In the meantime, we hope that you will be able to join us for Furball 2016.

About Gay and Lesbian Fund for Dallas | Advancing Equality Through Philanthropy
 
Every day, gay men and lesbians of Dallas contribute to the greater Dallas community by supporting non-profit organizations and causes that affect the quality of life of everyone in Dallas. Until recently, however, it was not known that such philanthropy was coming from the gay and lesbian community. The Gay & Lesbian Fund for Dallas demonstrates and advances equality by encouraging gay and lesbian philanthropy and giving visibility to the personal and financial contributions of gays and lesbians to the City of Dallas. With every donation it makes, the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Dallas ensures that recipient agencies do not discriminate in their hiring, employment, and service practices. Since 2000, the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Dallas has raised over $1,300,000 to support Dallas non-profits that value and foster diversity.

With every donation given by GLFD to non-profit agencies, GLFD ensures that the agencies do not discriminate in their hiring and employment practices and highlights that recipient agencies value diversity.
