August 2017 | End of Summer

The end of summer is near, which means Fall is just around the corner! North Texas Giving Day is approaching on September 14th, and our 9th Annual Fashion for a Passion on November 11th will be here before you know it! With all these events, the season of Fall is looking very exciting. 
 
In light of our #beCAUSE campaign and North Texas Giving Day approaching, we'd like to remind our subscribers to Shop and Support ATG by supporting our retail partners. In turn you will support us! Link your Kroger Plus card and Amazon account to ATG. Every time you shop, we receive a percentage of the proceeds to support our causes. For complete instructions, visit our Shop for a Cause page!

Be on the lookout next month for our ATG Scholarship Finalists announcement, Philippines Aid report, NTX Giving Day and FFAP Ticket Sales!

PAST MONTH'S HIGHLIGHTS
It was great to see everyone at our summer Dine for a Cause event as well as our co-presentation of the film Coffee Mate at the 16th Annual Asian Film Festival of Dallas! Thanks to your continued support, we were able to raise $105 at our Dine for a Cause event for our supported orphanages and underprivileged children in Asia, scholarship fund and community outreach programs! Many thanks to our Director Sponsor, Cindi's New York Deli & Restaurant and our community partner, AFFD!
