Community Partners of Dallas kicked off the 11th Annual Change is Good on Saturday, August 26 at CPD Headquarters with a celebration and day of volunteering for event sponsors and members of the event’s host committee.
Chair family Becky and Ted Lange with Reese, Jameson, Asher and Enzo, welcomed more than 65 attendees for a day of fun. As families arrived, the kids in attendance were encouraged to create their own design for the annual t-shirt, which will be unveiled at the upcoming October 1 event.
Midway through the event, president and CEO Paige McDaniel welcomed everyone and thanked event sponsors, then gave special recognition to the Change is Good chair family, the Langes as well as honorary grandparents Sandra and Paul Keck and Mary and Larry Lange. She also thanked all the kids for collecting all their pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and bills over the summer to help change the lives for other kids!
Attendees were then separated by age to help CPD put together hygiene kits and back to school supplies for the abused and neglected children they serve.
The 11th annual Change is Good will be held on Sunday, October 1 from 3 – 6 p.m. at Brook Hollow Golf Club. The fun-filled day will feature activities for all ages, including bungee jumping, prince/princess station, paper airplane zone, GameTruck, Rad Hatter, balloon artist, face painting, bounce houses, and a DJ dance party.
