We’re excited about all the fun things to do in Dallas this March, especially those that are helping us fight hunger! From Krewe de Etoiles this weekend to the Big Texas Beer Fest that starts March 31, we’re sure you can find some great things to do in our community that will also allow you to give back to those in need!


Krewe de Etoiles – Saturday, March 4

Krewe de Etoiles Gala Masquerade Ball will feature Dallas Cowboys icon Drew Pearson as King, the reigning “Miss Texas,” Caroline Carothers as Queen. The 2017 Royal Court will appear in full regalia depicting the chosen theme, “Mardi Gras Dallas, Old Hollywood Glamour.” With many special guests attending, and proceeds going toward two Dallas non-profit organizations, the North Texas Food Bank and Love for Kids, this Gala is sure to parallel the majesty of the seasons authentic Balls of New Orleans.
