Each child received a $350 DICK’S Sporting Goods gift card and spent time shopping with the players, who served as the children’s personal shopping consultants for the evening. DICK’S Sporting Goods was proud to host this event as part of its efforts to inspire and enable youth sports participation. Parents also received a $250 gift card for Kroger. They even provided a turkey with all of the fixings for Grand Prairie resident Silk Littlejohn’s family.

Alex Guerrero, The Society Founder & President and Ryan Green, Sr. Community Marketing Manager for Dick’s Sporting Good’s worked together with the help of Grand Prairie Volunteer VanDella Menifee to make this event an EPIC success.
