Thank you to everyone who attended our North Texas Giving Day Party – 2019 edition. We had so much fun hanging out, eating great food, and SUPPORTING NORTH TEXAS NONPROFITS! We love to see our friends come together from so many different organizations and have a great time. We all enjoyed the music performed by Jessica Gorden, the special performances from Shakespeare Dallas and The Writer’s Garret, and the ArtSpace gallery exhibition and open studios, featuring the work of celebrated artists Marta Whistler, Ray LeBoeuf, Duke Horn, and Ed Hall. The catering by Bite Bistro and delicious cookies from Full Circle Bakery had everyone coming back for more (and thanks to our digital press operator and party bartender Isaac – great job!).
We are so grateful to everyone who donated a door prize – and we have to say congratulations to our door prize winners! Thank you to Bite Bistro, Oasis Center, and our four resident artists who each donated an original work of art, Ed Hall, Duke Horn, Ray LeBoeuf, and Marta Whistler. (Ed Hall even donated two!!)
That’s a lot of thank yous to say – but we aren’t done yet! Here is what you’ve been waiting for, and why we put on this shindig each year: to raise money for area nonprofit organizations! What were the final numbers for North Texas Giving Day 2019 at Metropolitan Press? Drum roll, please…
We supported 131 Nonprofits
215 Donations were made by 109 Individual Donors
$12,190 in Matching Donations were made

Thanks to the Metropolitan Press staff, our nonprofit neighbors, The Writer’s Garret, Shakespeare Dallas, and Oasis Center and everyone’s hard work in putting together this fun event. And it wouldn’t be the success it is without those businesses partnering with Metropolitan Press to provide matching funds. Thank you again to our amazing Matching Fund Partners: Clampitt Paper-The Paper People, Corporate Communications, Go Studio, Express Booksellers, Texas Security Bank, and Hord Street Properties. We so appreciate everyone who came out to celebrate this fantastic day with us, and thank you to all who gave!
