Putting the Fun in Fundraisers: Special Ways to Support the Red Cross in June

by Micaela Rosinski, intern contributor

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.

Give me Liberty Burger to help disaster relief!
Throughout the month of June, family-owned restaurant, Liberty Burger, will be donating $1 from every ‘limited time only,’ or LTO, burger to the Red Cross. The current LTO burger is the Carolina BBQ Turkey Burger. According to manger Nancy, the burger features an all-white, natural, ground turkey patty with a Carolina style barbecue sauce, dill pickles and a traditional slaw on a brioche bun. Manager Morgan LeNoir said this will be the fifth month Liberty Burger has done such an event to raise money for a variety of charities. How lucky are we to have such a tasty pick for Red Cross relief?

“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

On Saturday, June 29, Dishcrawl will be hosting a ‘Neighborfood’ event, featuring eight restaurants in the Bishops Arts District. Each $10 entry ticket purchase will include one food ticket for a dish at one restaurant. Additional food tickets will be available for $5 online and at the event. While purchasing a ticket at, simply enter code ‘redcross,’ and $5 of the purchase will be given to the Red Cross. Additional information can be found on the website.

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. Tickets are available for purchase at All proceeds will be given to the Red Cross.

Whether its date night, a family outing, or spending time with friends, start the summer off right and make a difference in the process!

  1. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
    for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as +447053820826 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
