Special Message Regarding RECESS 2020


We are terribly disappointed to share that, due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, RECESS – our signature fundraising event – has been cancelled. While the financial impact of taking such action for Dallas Afterschool is substantial, protecting you, our patrons, from the potential spread of the virus is our utmost priority at this time.

Although it will not be possible for us to celebrate RECESS in person on March 27th, we will be working to make the most of the event virtually. One way we plan to have some virtual fun is to hold our RECESS raffle exclusively online. This will be a “pumped up” version with EVEN MORE items and packages! We are also extending the drawing date to Monday, March 30th at 3pm. Winners (and losers) will be notified via email immediately after – or they may watch the drawing in real time on Facebook Live.

Unfortunately, Dallas Afterschool is still responsible with all the costs associated with such a large event. We hope you will join us in getting the word out about our continued fundraising efforts to help mitigate the effects of these costs. If you haven’t already, please “like” us and “follow us” on facebook @DallasAfterschool, invite others to “like” our page, and share our posts. Also, if you have not yet purchased raffle tickets, I invite you to do so below.

Thank you for your support of Dallas Afterschool and the 14,000 children who continue to rely on us for safe, engaging afterschool programs. We appreciate your support and understanding during this difficult time.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Christina Hanger, CEO at changer@dallasafterschool.org or Sarah Elliott, VP of Development at selliott@dallasafterschool.org.
