GRAND PRAIRIE—In observance of North Texas Giving Day, which is 6 a.m. - midnight Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014, Grand Prairie’s Lifeline Shelter for Families is going Hog Wild. The non-profit has issued a challenge to donors to raise $10,000 in one day.

Lifeline Shelter specifically bet City Manager Tom Hart that if they could raise $5,000 by noon today (Sept. 18) he would have to kiss a pig. The non-profit raised the amount this morning! Come see City Manager Tom Hart kiss a pig at City Hall, 317 College St., Grand Prairie, at 1 p.m.

If the non-profit raises $10,000 by midnight, Grand Prairie Independent School District Superintendent Susan Hull will ride her Harley “Hog” motorcycle through City Hall, 317 College St., at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 19.

To donate, go to northtexasgivingday.org and select “Lifeline Shelter for Families, Inc.”

Donors are invited to watch in person, and Lifeline plans to post videos of the kissing and riding on the Lifeline Shelter for Families Facebook page, and website, lifelineshelter.org.
