Registration has ended.
The 2010 Emerging Leaders have teamed up with a local non-profit organization called ‘Mercy Street’ that has a vibrant presence in the West Dallas community.
Mercy Street is a local community ministry, whose mission is to foster life-long mentorships to underprivileged West Dallas children. Each year “Mercy Street” continues to advance its mission to improve the lives of the children from West Dallas in hopes to be the leaders of tomorrow. Through ‘Mercy Street’s’ ministries, mentorships, sports, camps, and other programs they have seen many lives changed for the better. Being inspired by this organization and their accomplishments, the 2010 AIA Dallas Emerging Leaders has made a commitment to Mercy Street to help expand and complete their “Field of Dreams” sports complex for youth athletics.
The “Field of Dreams” project involves the development of a vacant parcel of land on Hampton Road, near Pinkston High School, into a dual functioning Community Use/Sports Complex. The project has lived in the minds of Trey Hill, Executive Director of Mercy Street and his staff for years, and has already resulted in a new competition Baseball Field on the site. It is used by both the community and the high school, but the vision is much larger than a single field. The core programmatic elements of the complex include a concession stand, restroom facilities, shade structures, additional baseball/softball fields, multi-purpose soccer/football fields, and other outdoor features. The 2010 Emerging Leaders are in the process of visioning with Mercy Street and the Community to create a Master Plan for the site that is designed around the voice and needs of the community.
Fundraising: Along with assisting in the design of the ‘Field of Dreams’ project, our 2010 Emerging Leaders group is helping to raise funds dedicated to this project. We are hosting a Fundraising Silent Auction Event at Times Ten Cellars on the evening of Thursday, September 16th 6-8pm. Anyone that would like to attend the silent auction is welcomed, pre-registration and registration at the door the day of the event is available.
