We’ve got some crazy, exciting things on the horizon! In the next couple of months, we will roll out the Union Food & Coffee Truck to begin serving the best coffee and breakfast sandwiches in Dallas. We are also excited to be participating in the tenth anniversary of North Texas Giving Day on September 20th and have a fantastic lineup of fun events planned. What kind of fun, you ask?
<drum roll, please>
The first ever Live Union Awards Show! <insert audible gasp here> You are invited to purchase tickets and tables for our big event on September 13th at 7:00pm. The night will feature live music, stories, delicious Tex-mex, awards and red carpet pictures as well as an outdoor reception with hardhat tours of our new location and food truck. If you’d like to organize a table or purchase a ticket, click the big orange button below. Reserve your spot quickly because space is limited to 75 people.
For the tenth anniversary of North Texas Giving Day, Communities Foundation of Texas is encouraging ten days of giving. We’re lining up fun events on at least five of them so that you can connect with the most generous coffee shop in Dallas- for more information, check out the lineup on our North Texas Giving Day Page. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in ten days and we are confident that we can do it with your help.
We have set this goal so that Union can continue to raise leaders in the city of Dallas who go on to change the world. I recently received an email from one of our former board members. After moving to New York, she recently started attending one of the oldest United Methodist Churches in the world- only to find that roughly 15-20 people showed up in worship on any given week. Half of them each week are visitors. Few of the visitors return. After approaching the pastor about the church’s enormous potential, she is now leading conversations with church and community members. Their goal is to revitalize this church that once gave life to a movement for social justice and the gospel. The closing words of her email — “I’m doing this because Union showed me how.”
Because of your generosity and leadership, our former board member is able to step up confidently and breath new life and ideas into her church. You are playing a crucial role in shaping millennials who will shape our world. I hope to see you at one of our North Texas Giving Day events.
