DALLAS-July 22 – La Grande 107.5 FM hosted their annual Festival Del Sol, a free 2-day music festival featuring an all-star line-up of Tejano and Regional Mexican artists on July 21-22 at Fair Park. Catholic Charities Dallas (CCD) was honored to be chosen as the beneficiary charity of choice for this year’s event.  A big “thank you” to Entercom Communications (formerly CBS Radio) for sponsoring the booth that allowed CCD staff and volunteers to visit with over 10,000 attendees and distribute information to create awareness of the multitude of programs CCD offers the Hispanic community.  Among the many CCD volunteers that manned the booth was our Board of Directors Member, Megan Martinez.  Megan commented, “What an incredible opportunity this provided us to educate the thousands of Festival attendees about what CCD offers to those in need within the community.  I was really glad to be a part of the CCD volunteer team to help make it happen!”
