On Wednesday, December 14th, Chevrolet worked with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas to surprise approximately 200 kids by setting up an authentic North Pole experience in Dallas! The snowy, white Christmas scene and holiday fun that ensued resulted in a number of local kids saying “it was the best day they ever had”.
The Mesquite, TX Boys & Girls Club was transformed by Chevrolet into a “Pop-Up North Pole” on Wednesday, where the kids could tube down a snow-covered slide, play in the snow with their friends, have their faces painted, decorate gingerbread houses and talk to Mr. and Mrs. Claus themselves! More than 200 kids from the Dallas area, ages 6-18, were able to play festive games, walk in a real-life winter wonderland, and have a truly memorable holiday experience.
Grant Lindsay, Chevrolet Spokesperson for Dallas, said Wednesday, “Chevrolet wanted to do something unique this holiday season to give back to the Dallas community. At its core, Chevrolet has the same ‘never give up’ spirit that Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas instills in the children they work with, and we were thrilled to give them a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
On hand for the big surprise, Santa and Mrs. Claus met with the kids and listened to their holiday wish lists, and helped distribute special gifts to all in attendance, provided by Chevrolet. Area Director of Operations & Traditional Clubs, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas, Cherri Rowe acknowledged, “We couldn’t be more thankful to Chevrolet for bringing the North Pole to Boys & Girls Clubs in Dallas. We aim to provide life-changing programs and experiences to the children that are part of our organization, and the opportunity to play in the snow in Texas will leave a lasting impression for years to come.”
