DFW Strong, CT100 partner to raise funds
DFW Strong announced Friday a partnership with Chisholm Trail 100 Club to raise funds for the families of Dallas and DART police officers killed or seriously injured during the July 7 ambush attack on police.
Donations will filter through Chisholm Trail 100 Club, an organization that provides a line of duty death benefit to emergency responders in Johnson and Somervell Counties.
Dallas Cowboys’ legend Jay Novacek and his wife, Amy, are heading the DFW Strong fundraising campaign. One of the initiatives is the placement of blue donation buckets in partnering businesses, a program headed by Sherri Aaron, wife of Mansfield Police Chief Tracy Aaron. DFW Strong is also preparing a fundraising event to include sports and music celebrities, gourmet food from local chefs and auctions for unique items and custom experiences. Tickets will be available through dfwstrong.com or ct100.org.
Donations made through either organization are tax-deductible. Donations can be made at the respective websites or at P.O. Box 332, Burleson, TX 76097. Both organizations may also be found on Facebook.
