Description

Welcome to the first annual East Dallas Familia block party!

Why are we doing this?

On 9/17 our neighbors, Laura and Colin Crawford, and their 2 children, lost their house in a fire. Watching the community come together to help them was inspiring. There were offers for assistance with housing, cleaning, fundraising, clothing, and meal support. The Crawfords are very grateful for all of the amazing support from their East Dallas Familia.

When you ask them what they want to come out of this, they say:

  • They want famillies to have smoke detectors, installed and checked by the fire department
  • They want everyone to have a fire escape plan
  • Most of all, they want to give back to the firemen who were there for them on such a hard night

So we've designed an event that is intended to give back and a T-Shirt that brags about that, because what are we if we aren't jerks bragging about how badass we are?


What can you do?

Attend - Come out and join us. Attendance is free. Listen to resident music genius, Chris Penn, of Good Records and Good Pagoda, mix music full of subliminal messages that will make us spend more money. Make a donation for a hot dog. Buy a shirt. Meet your neighbors and thank a fire fighter.

Buy a shirt* - Shirts available for preorder here or at the event. While attendance is free, buying a "ticket" here reserves you a shirt!

Donate - If you just love firefighters and don't care about T-shirts, just give!

Donations and portions of food and T-Shirt sales benefit Guns and Hoses of North Texas


What can I bring?

Seating! Folding chairs/blankets/bean bags/siblings you don't like

Drinks! We will have water, but bring a cooler with whatever you want to drink.


* In order to support our community we are using a local company to make the shirts. Without knowing the demand we can't plan for how many shirts to make. We will have shirts at the event to pick up if you pre-ordered, or buy on the spot. But if demand is too great, we may have to print more after the event. In which case they will be available for pick up at Good Pagoda. Your patience with this process is greatly appreciated, because most of the organizers have full time jobs, families, and questionable drinking habits that might delay delivery.
