‘Tis the Season! The very thought brings joy to families across North Texas! But it can also cause anxiety for families who are struggling to make ends meet this holiday season. Fortunately, there is hope for these families at the Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange (GRACE) Christmas Cottage.

 

GRACE recently kicked off their annual Christmas Cottage toy drive at Park Place Lexus Grapevine with a spirited event featuring singer Fanci Collins and a sneak peek at the 2023 Lexus RX 350 and NX Sport Utility Vehicles.

“We have partnered with GRACE for 10 years to help families in our community,” said Charles Owen, Park Place Lexus Grapevine general manager. “This is a wonderful event that ensures children in our community have a Christmas to remember. GRACE makes it easy to give back.”

 

Guests enjoyed bacon-wrapped shrimp in a poblano cream sauce, beef and chicken quesadillas with an assortment of mini desserts by Mi Cocina; tomato caprese, rigatoni bolognese and tiramisu from Brio; and arancini risotto bites, bacon-wrapped dates, and hummus shooters by Ferah Tex-Med restaurants at Southlake Town Square. A selection of beer, wine and cocktails set the festive mood, including a specialty drink, the Tipsy L, created with Maker's Mark, orange juice, cranberry juice and maple syrup.

 

Park Place Members and guests donated enough new toys and games to fill several large Lexus SUVs for the GRACE Christmas Cottage. 

Early the next morning, volunteers from Park Place delivered the toys and spent several hours helping organize items at the Christmas Cottage.

Through the GRACE Christmas Cottage, each qualified family is given a hypothetical “budget” that allows parents to “purchase” donated toys, home goods and appliances in a private, store-like setting. This approach allows families to budget their resources and select unique presents while preserving the family’s dignity. Over 2,500 individuals and families are served at Christmas Cottage each holiday season.

 

This year, the Christmas Cottage is located at 2550 SW Grapevine Parkway, Suite 150 in Grapevine. The annual Christmas Cottage Open House will be Tuesday, December 6, 2022. To make a monetary donation to the GRACE Christmas Holiday Fund, go to gracegrapevine.org.

  • Supports one of Park Place Cares’ pillars of giving, which include: Education; Medical; Advocacy; or the Arts
  • Serves at least one of the following counties: Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Denton, Ellis, Rockwall, Kaufman, Hunt or Johnson
  • The charity cannot have received donations or in-kind support from Park Place in 2022. 

“We have an incredible team serving clients every day who are also passionate about making a difference in the communities where they live and work,” said Tony Carimi, Managing Director of Park Place Dealerships. “Park Place Members are actively engaged in choosing the nonprofits to support financially and volunteering throughout the year. As we wrap up Season of Giving, we are launching the Park Place Week of Service where more than 300 Members will volunteer across North Texas with 20 charities. We continually hear from local charities about the need for volunteers and we have a very generous group of people who enjoy serving others.

DQ of Seven Points 20th Annual Car Show “Best of Show” winner Kenneth Napps of Maybank with Dairy Queen of Seven Points owner Shirley Leone

Proceeds Will Help the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake Buy a New Van to Transport Animals for Adoption

The Dairy Queen of Seven Points hosted its 20th Annual Car Show Saturday, October 1, raising more than $10,000 for the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake. 

Nearly 70 vehicles participated with awards in 27 different Classes, including Model A; Truck; 4x4; Sports Car; Best Restored; Factory Hot Rod; Street Rod; 50s/60s; 70s/80s; Muscle Car; Project; Import; Most Unique; Most Radical; plus 10 Head Turners and one Best of Show. 

Kenneth Napps of Mabank took Best of Show with his red 1933 Chevy Coupe.

“The car show was an amazing success,” said Shirley Leone, owner of the Dairy Queen of Seven Points. “Over the past 10 years, we’ve donated more than $30,000 to the Humane Society from the proceeds of the Car Show. The Humane Society needed about $10,000 to purchase a new “Danny Van,” named in honor of my late husband who was a big supporter of the Humane Society. We are thrilled to be able to help this very important cause! The Humane Society uses the Danny Van to transport animals for adoption.”

Bob Reddish helped organize the show and served as emcee for the Awards program. 

“The quality of the cars this year was very high,” said Reddish. “There was a wide range of makes and models, from vintage models that looked like they just rolled off the showroom floor to ratrods and muscle cars. It was a great show.”

Healthcare professionals in Dallas-Fort Worth have a new go-to resource for gearing up and feeling fashion-forward while committing each day to caring for others. Scrubs & Beyond, the largest omnichannel retailer of healthcare apparel and accessories in the country, is expanding its service to Dallas-Fort Worth healthcare workers with the opening of new brick-and-mortar stores in Hurst and Lewisville. The two new retail locations join four other existing locations in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Scrubs & Beyond, a 20-year veteran of the healthcare apparel industry recently acquired by Kindthread, is dedicated to serving healthcare professionals by offering a vast selection of stylish products and outstanding customer service to those in the business of helping others. The retailer operates 117 stores across the U.S., as well as a robust digital marketplace that accommodates individual orders, group orders, custom embroidery requests, and more. 

“Everyone at Kindthread is devoted to bringing elevated, world class products and experiences to healthcare professionals and we are pleased to bring two new Scrubs & Beyond stores to our community in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” said David Murphy, chief executive officer of Kindthread. “Our aim is to help every healthcare worker look and feel their best and make the process of buying their work uniforms as effortless as possible - whether in store or online.” 

From classic scrub pants and tops to lab coats, jackets, shoes and more, Scrubs & Beyond raises the bar for fashion in the healthcare industry. The new store will feature many of the retailer’s best sellers and options that allow fashion-conscious men to feel confident and comfortable on the job. Other popular items include scrub pants with inspirational messages in the waistbands; compression socks in fun and vibrant patterns such as tie dye; accessories like t-shirts to layer under scrub tops and Scrubs & Beyond’s own private label line, Beyond Scrubs. 

“As the Dallas-Fort Worth population continues to experience steady growth, so does the number of healthcare workers who live and work in the area,” said Michael Vermilion, chief commerce officer at Kindthread. “At Kindthread, we’re eager to share our passion for delivering innovative products and memorable experiences with the healthcare and service professionals via the Scrubs & Beyond brand, which healthcare professionals have known and trusted for more than two decades.”

However, as its Scrubs Club members know, shopping at Scrubs & Beyond isn’t just about finding top-of-the line, in-demand apparel. It’s also an experience where healthcare workers feel appreciated and understood. Enhancing the customer experience has been a major focus of bringing this new store to life. Aside from store associates’ vast product knowledge – many of Scrubs & Beyond associates are healthcare professionals themselves. Scrubs & Beyond is committed to offering a full-service shopping experience to help determine customer’s needs, such as assisting with personal shopping, offering embroidery services and sharing information about special fitting events.

Beyond offering an expansive selection of colors in the latest on-trend styles and collections from the industry’s most popular brands, Scrubs & Beyond is sizing inclusive with most garments offered in men’s and women’s sizes XS to 3X. Some products offer extended sizes including XXS and 4X to 6X, as well as Petite, Short and Tall pant options.

In addition to creating exceptional experiences for healthcare workers updating their own work wardrobes in-store, Scrubs & Beyond also works closely with many leading healthcare facilities and providers in Hurst and Lewisville to serve their scrub and uniform needs. 

“Understanding and catering to the needs of those who work in healthcare is the foundation of Scrubs & Beyond,” said Angela Mahoney, head of stores for Scrubs & Beyond. “Our brands and product lines are selected specifically for their comfort and durability that stand up to the big demands of a healthcare professional’s job. At the same time, we celebrate the intersection of functionality and fashion, giving healthcare heroes the ability to showcase their personal style and look as great as they feel.”

Registration will be on-site at 11 a.m. with an Awards Ceremony starting at 2:30 p.m. The Dairy Queen of Seven Points is located off Highway 334 at 274 at 110 W. Cedar Creek Parkway. The event is open to the public.

Entry fee is $20 per vehicle along with a donation of cat or dog food. All proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake. Pet adoptions through the Humane Society also will be available on site. 

 

“My husband Danny was a big supporter of the Humane Society,” said Shirley Leone, owner of the Dairy Queen of Seven Points. “He would write personal checks for beds, fans and heaters throughout the year. Our goal is to raise enough funds to replace the Humane Society’s ‘Danny Van,’ which is used to transport animals for adoption.”

 

During the car show, Dairy Queen of Seven Points will donate a portion of sales to the Humane Society. They also will sell Skeeter Cups (pup cups filled with soft serve ice cream and dog treats on top) for $3 per cup with 100% of the Skeeter Cupssales donated to the Humane Society. In addition, proceeds from a 50/50 raffle, prizes and t-shirt sales will benefit the Humane Society. 

 

“Over the past 10 years, we’ve donated more than $30,000 to the Humane Society,” explained Mrs. Leone. “Last year we donated $6,400 and we are hoping to exceed that this year. The Humane Society is currently short around $10,000 to get the new Danny van. So, we have our goal for this year’s event!”
