TONIGHT IS NO-COOK NIGHT! Woohoo! I wanted to invite everyone out to Tin Star TONIGHT for dinner. One of our Allen residents (a mom with 2 young kids who is a dear friend of mine) is valiantly living with Lupus, and Tin Star in Allen, TX (on McDermott, in front of Lowe’s) is hosting a fundraiser night for us TONIGHT 4-9pm! 15% of all sales will be donated to the Alliance for Lupus Research, and KIDS EAT FREE with adult entree purchase (one kid per adult).  

Don’t have time to dine in? Order your dinner TO GO! You’ll still be supporting Lupus research! Check out their menu here and then call (972) 396-7700 to place your order TONIGHT 4-9pm.

This is a fundraising event hosted by Heather’s Feathers, a team of Allen residents who will be walking on October 9th in the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) “Walk with Us to Cure Lupus” in Dallas.

Why do we call ourselves “Heather’s Feathers”? Like birds of a feather, we flock together in support of our friend Heather. She’s a valiant mother of two young children who battles Lupus on a daily basis, and is a great ambassador for Lupus research and education. She’s opened our eyes to the disease, and we want to support her by helping to raise funds for finding treatment options and a cure.

We invite you to join our team (the more, the merrier!) and will very appreciatively accept your financial support at any level! To join our team or donate, click here then scroll to the team roster in the lower left-hand corner.
