If you're hungry for the chance to make a difference — but also just hungry — mark your calendar for the foodie and philanthropy event Hearts on the Trinity.
Held November 17 from 6-8 pm at 3015 at Trinity Groves, the third annual bash benefits VolunteerNow™ and its new Young Leaders Council, which champions volunteerism among young professionals in North Texas.
Proceeds from the $35 ticket (or two for $50) support the YLC, but what do those tickets get you? Unlimited samples of mouthwatering food and delicious beverages from some of Dallas-Fort Worth's most exciting eating and drinking establishments, along with live music in a venue that overlooks the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and downtown Dallas skyline.
Expect to chow down on food from LUCK, Mozzarella Company, Mudhen Meat and Greens, Pop Star Handcrafted Popsicles, Cafe Momentum, and Social Ice. Fill your cup with sips from Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Oak Highlands Brewery, On the Rocks Cocktails, and good ol' Dr Pepper.
“Hearts on the Trinity is the perfect event for young professionals to network while giving back to the community,” says VolunteerNow CEO Tammy Richards. “The YLC is developing the next generation of philanthropists in Dallas. Their efforts go a long way in developing volunteer leaders who will make a stronger volunteer community in North Texas.”
As it completes its inaugural year, the VolunteerNow Young Leaders Council has more than 100 members. The group hosts several seminars and events throughout the year, including Leadership Briefings, service projects, and socials. It serves as a pipeline of engaged and trained next-generation volunteer leaders, philanthropists, civic volunteers, nonprofit board members, and community change-makers in North Texas.
