FORT WORTH (November 21, 2017) – Sundance Square recently hosted Spooky Sip & Shop, a shopping and wine tasting event, which resulted in more than $7,200 raised for Tarrant Area Food Bank. The funds will be used to provide approximately 36,000 meals for families in the community.
“We had a great time showcasing the shops in Sundance Square, offering great wines provided by In the Sack, and featuring delicious bites from a few of Sundance Square’s favorite restaurants,” said Tracy Gilmour, director of marketing for the 35-block development. “We are so glad that this event has helped the Tarrant Area Food Bank and will help feed families during the holidays.”
Bo Soderbergh, executive director, Tarrant Area Food Bank, says that the gift from Sundance Square and local shoppers is coming at the perfect time. “With the holidays just around the next corner, we’re pleased to receive this donation because it will help us make sure that no one has to go hungry this holiday season.”
