Have you ever heard the phrase “shop till you drop”? Well, that phrase was something you could hear throughout the store this past Saturday at the Heart of Neiman Marcus event. Everyone had a smile on their face and a rack of clothes ready to purchase in support of Dillard Elementary School. Ten percent of ALL the merchandise sales were donated to a great cause, the start of an Art Program for 800 deserving Dillard students.
Every hour the customers and staff gathered together to witness the talents of the students with live performances from various clubs and groups of Dillard Elementary. The Impact Girls Club put on a great interpretive dance show to the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. This had the whole store clapping, cheering, and even singing! The Impact Girls also participated in an Art Adventure where they hand crafted butterflies which were centrally displayed on two large walls in the women's department for all to see.
Ranger Good Works was pleased to see over a hundred of our friends and family members shopping, socializing, and more importantly, supporting Dillard Elementary School. During the event, our team was very fortunate to make some new friends which will open doors to endless possibilities for our participating organizations. Through this initiative, Dillard was able to gain major support from community partners such as Young at Art Museum and Neiman Marcus. Together we were able to exceed our goal which provided Dillard with a GREAT amount of money to start their much needed Art Program.
