How YP Stole Christmas

Join the Dallas Fort Worth Urban League Young Professionals as we master the giveback and leave you with great memories of "When YP Stole Christmas". Registered families will receive wrapped gifts for the tree and all guests will be eligible for door prizes and many surprises.

This Christmas Extravaganza will feature workshops for children and relaxing moments for adults. Enjoy shopping from local vendors and take family pictures with Santa as you experience a Christmas Celebration right in the heart of South Dallas.

*Sponsors for families are still needed!*

Can you adopt one the families from our South Dallas angel tree? A couple gifts can make a difference for a South Dallas child this Christmas. Sign up by emailing social.cultural@dfwulyp.org or sending monetary donations so someone else can shop for you to Treasurer@dfwulyp.org attn: YP Christmas.

*Vendors Needed!*

We have space for 9 more vendors. Please contact Social.Cultural@DFWULYP.org or simply complete this form and email the receipt.
