The Gingerbread Stroll
At the sixth annual Gingerbread Stroll, attendees will stroll among 12 Highland Park Village merchant’s shops where they can admire and silently bid on ornately decorated gingerbread houses, crafted by 12 of Dallas’ premiere pastry chefs. All proceeds from the Gingerbread Stroll will benefit Clayton Dabney Foundation for Kids with Cancer.
Dallas residential real estate agent Christine McKenny founded the Gingerbread Stroll in 2011, with the hopes of bringing the community together to raise funds for local children’s charities. Each year, a different charity is selected as the beneficiary of 100 percent of the proceeds, and in 2016, the Stroll raised more than $20,000 for Community Partners of Dallas. Community Leader, Lynn McBee, serves as the event advisor for the Gingerbread Stroll. The Gingerbread Stroll has raised over $60,000 for area children in need, since its inception.
