Dallas Theater's Patron Appreciation Night

So, I had plans to attend our team's second Pirate's Night Out last Saturday, September 18th. I had a costume picked out and everything... Then on Friday evening, my plans changed. I was offered a table at the Dallas Theater's Patron Appreciation Night, a free show featuring Andy Offutt Irwin on Saturday. Along with the table, the Dallas Theater donated two tickets to Terror at the Dallas Theater, their haunted house event featuring a haunted history tour, a ScareMaze, and movies.

Here I am at my table at the beginning of the show:

Before the show started, they made this announcement:

"Want a chance to win a pair of tickets to Terror at the Dallas Theater, our haunted theater adventure? Well, all you have to do is make a donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to enter our raffle. You may have noticed Deanna Oaks sitting in our lobby on your way in. She is walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for a Cure – a 60 mile walk from Lake Lanier to Turner Field. Her main reason for walking:  1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Thanks to events like the 3-Day for the Cure, the Susan G. Komen Foundation has invested nearly $1.5 billion to end breast cancer, becoming the largest source of non-profit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. Deanna is here to collect tax deductible donations, and every donation (no matter the value) qualifies for an entry to our raffle. Please stop by and make your donation tonight!"

After the show was over, people stopped by my table to enter the raffle.

A BIG (BIG) thank you goes out to the patrons of Dallas Theater, who donated $104.00 to the cause!!! I am so glad that I was asked to be in the lobby, and so thankful to live in a community that cares!

Thanks again Dallas!
