DALLAS — The inaugural Family Fun Day hosted by Twin Stacks Center in June raised over $800 for Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge. Twin Stacks Center owner Lynn Banta recently presented a check to Cordie Braun, fundraising coordinator for Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge.
The Family Fun Day featured approximately 50 vendors from the Back Mountain community and beyond. With a focus on small and local businesses, the Family Fun Day featured tenants of the Twin Stacks Center, craft vendors, health and wellness advocates, dance schools and performers, rescue and therapy animals, food vendors and many more. All vendors were asked to donate a percentage of their proceeds to Blue Chip Farm.
There are a variety of ways community members can help Blue Chip continue their mission. Serving the Back Mountain community for the last 15 years, the non-profit organization has done so solely on the donation of time and money from community members.
Those interested in volunteering their time can do so as Kitty Cottage workers, dog walkers and brushers, maintenance helpers, fundraising organizers, and much more.
Anyone interested must be over age 18. Volunteers can complete a volunteer registration form at http://www.bcfanimalrefuge.org. Younger helpers, ages 13-17, can help too while accompanied by a guardian.
Monetary donations can be made at Blue Chip’s website. Wish List items can be purchased and dropped off, and patrons can participate in the “Adopt-a-Kennel” program recently launched this year.
