This year’s celebration includes a 3–ounce Creation developed by 5-year-old wish child and 2009 Junior Tastemaster™ Jack. He combined sweet cream ice cream with brownie, sprinkles and fudge to create his special treat.

From 5-8 p.m., customers will receive a 3-ounce serving of Jack’s Creation in exchange for a donation to this worthy cause. Donations that night and all month long will benefit the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

YAAD Art Show to Benefit The Stewpot of Dallas


6-8pm @ Vino 100

Please join the Young Artist Association of Dallas for a fun night of wine and art to benefit The Stewpot of Dallas.

On display will be the paintings of Edgar Cardoze and Page Goss, and the photographs of Christina Kearney, Stuart Palley, Jordan Chlapecka, and myself. Free hors d’oeuvres and half-priced wine during the first hour.

80% of the proceeds will benefit the art program at The Stewpot, which after volunteering for, I can say is a remarkable program that can change lives. For 6 hours, 3 days of week, The Stewpot opens its doors to the homeless community of Dallas to provide free art classes to whoever wishes to participate. These art classes act as a form of therapy, and provide the opportunity to work for an income. Each participant has the choice of his/her personal medium–whether it be from acrylics to oils to jewelry making. Then, the artist can choose to put the artwork up for sale at The Stewpot, with 90% of the proceeds given to that artist. This creates an exciting environment filled with creativity, inspiration, and hope. Our goal is to sell our artwork to raise as much money as possible to provide the program with more freedom and the ability to continue to make such a positive impact on the Dallas community.
