The day started at daybreak yesterday–WFAA News 8 Daybreak, and just got better from there. We had an incredible North Texas Giving Day and thanks to our amazing donors, we raised more money than during any previous Giving Day. During the 18 hours of giving, our supporters gave an incredible $71,350 including a $35,000 matching donation by Advisory Board Member Amy Simmons and Board Member Kay Miller.

Coach Avery Johnson came by to meet donors and sign autographs.  The Easy Sliders truck was on hand for lunch. Later in the day, national speaker Gabe Salazar and some of our peer-to-peer mentors and mentees came to greet donors.

We had a great time talking with everyone who stopped by. Congratulations to Cynthia Henneberger for winning a basketball signed by Coach.
