What gives: Small ways to help neighborhood nonprofits

This month, attend a pooch party at Flag Pole Hill or join a people party instead at Lake Highlands Town Center.

This Month attend a pooch party …

… during a Dog Day Afternoon at Flag Pole Hill. The dog days of summer are winding down, but the season for hanging at the park with your pooch is in full swing. Dog Day Afternoon is 9 a.m.-1p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 at Flag Pole Hill near White Rock Lake. The free event features a pet psychic, face painting and free microchipping for the first 50 dogs, to name a few. The event benefits Operation Kindness, North Texas’ oldest and largest no-kill animal shelter. Learn more at operationkindness.org.

OR

Make it a people party …

… at the Lake Highlands Town Center. The Exchange Club of Lake Highlands and the Lake Highlands Area Early Childhood PTA’s Lake Highlands Oktoberfest will take place on the Lake Highlands Town Center property at Skillman and Walnut Hill, Oct. 1 from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. The party includes tons of family fun; food and beverages from local restaurants, including Kuby’s, The Grape, Eat the World, Urban Pizza, Fat Daddy’s and Enchiladas; beer; live music; and games. Proceeds from the event will help fund scholarships for Lake Highlands students. Visit lhexchangeclub.org for more information.
