“This is one of our most popular fundraisers, and is an ideal time for consumers to acquaint themselves with the area’s hottest menus, while potentially discovering their favorite new establishments. Each meal consumed during this timeframe enables our organization to put food on the table of area children, families and seniors who are going hungry today.” 
-Jan Pruitt, President and CEO, North Texas Food Bank
Last year the annual fundraiser raised a record $600,000+ for the North Texas Food Bank and the Lena Pope Home! What an amazing contribution from the DFW!

The North Texas Food Bank
The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a nonprofit hunger relief organization that distributes donated, purchased and prepared foods through a network of 1,184 feeding programs in 13 North Texas counties. The NTFB supports the nutritional needs of children, families and seniors through education, advocacy and strategic partnerships. Close the Gap is the NTFB’s 3-year initiative to unite the community to narrow the food gap by providing access to 50 million meals annually by 2011.
Founded in 1982, the NTFB is a member of Feeding America (feedingamerica.org). Last fiscal year, the NTFB provided access to 51 million meals through its efforts. Each month Member Agency pantries distribute food to nearly 25,000 people every day. Every dollar donated to the NTFB provides three meals for the hungry.
Lena Pope Home
Lena Pope Home, Inc. has been serving Tarrant County children and families since 1930. The mission of Lena Pope Home is to help create hope, happiness and success for children and families. We impact over 20,000 individuals a year, with a focus in four key areas: prevention, early intervention, education and counseling. For more information about Lena Pope Home, visit www.lenapopehome.org or call 817-255-2500.
With Chapel Hill Academy Charter School, we offer an early education foundation to children, with wrap around services for their families, to prevent future struggles in school.
We partner with Fort Worth ISD and Juvenile Probation to offer alternative education programs aimed at early intervention to give these children a second chance to become successful and return to their home campuses.
Bridging the two, we offer a broad range of counseling, therapy and parent services through our Family Matters counseling programs.
We know that what our community needs most is programs that get results. That's why all of our programs implement evidence-based, research tested techniques with the children and families we serve.
Hope, Happiness and Success - that's what we're all about at Lena Pope Home.
 
A Delicious Ride
For a delectable ride try the most luxurious and spacious crossover on the market, the SRX. The Cadillac SRX offers a dynamic alternative in the mid-luxury crossover segment, with a dramatic design, efficient engine choices and a nimble driving experience.
SRX seats five and delivers generous occupant and cargo room; it can tow up to 3,500 pounds (1,587 kg) when properly equipped. A 3.0L direct injected V-6 engine is standard and a 2.8L turbocharged V-6 is optional. Both employ advanced technology that helps produce strong performance that is typical of larger-displacement engines, but with greater fuel economy and lower emissions. SRX FWD models with the 3.0L engine are EPA-rated at 25 mpg on the highway.
Performance and safety are enhanced by an available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system designed to optimize vehicle handling and stability in all driving conditions. The pre-emptive, active-on-demand system provides an extra measure of capability in wet or icy conditions.
