We write about a lot of houses here at CandysDirt, the places where we make our memories, build our families, and have fun.
Today, we’re looking at some very special houses that directly benefit vulnerable children in foster care.
The 20th anniversary Parade of Playhouses at NorthPark Center is an enjoyable, family-friendly event held every summer. It benefits Dallas CASA, an organization of community volunteers trained and appointed to advocate for the best interests of abused or neglected children in foster care locally.
Generous corporations, organizations, and individuals will design, build, and donate extraordinary children’s playhouses to raise funds so Dallas CASA can provide more volunteer advocates to help abused children have safe, permanent homes where they can thrive.
“This 20th-anniversary of Parade of Playhouses is a reminder that all children deserve to be protected and loved,” said Kersten Rettig, Director of Development for Dallas CASA. “While some children dream of having their very own fantasy playhouse, others dream of having a safe, stable home filled by those they love and who love them—this event really helps all of those dreams come true.”
