As school ends and temperatures begin to rise, it is obvious summer is upon us. Organizations around the area have taken note and have planned various events to benefit the American Red Cross in ways that are just as exciting as summer break. From restaurants to concerts, there is an event for everyone to enjoy in the coming weeks.
Sunday, June 9, a benefit concert, ‘Rockin’ for Moore,’ will be held at Main Stage Live in North Dallas from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dallas-Fort Worth based variety dance band, Don’t Tell Mama, will be hosting the event. According to their website, the band plays popular hits from the ‘60s through the 2000s. A total of eight bands will be performing at the event. Admission is $10, and raffle prizes will be distributed throughout the day. All proceeds will benefit Moore, Oklahoma relief efforts.

“We try to pick a charity each month to donate a dollar of our LTO sales,” LeNoir said. “We decided to do this on after the tornado. We thought, you know, close to home, local.”
Liberty Burger currently has two Dallas locations, on Forest Lane and Keller Springs Road. Additional information may be found on www.givemelibertyburger.com.

For the comedy lovers, look no further than ‘That Show,’ hosted by Oliver Tull. Presented by the weekday morning show, Eye Opener, on CW33, the event can be described as one part late night show, one part comedy short film festival, and one part hip hop concert. A variety of acts including comedians, movie critics and even a magician are scheduled to attend. The event will be held Thursday, June 20 at 7 p.m. at the Four Day Weekend Theatre in Fort Worth.
