RECESS! is the signature fundraising event for Dallas Afterschool. Not your typical black tie event, RECESS! attendees are encouraged to be schoolyard chic while enjoying a night of music, games, food, and adult juice boxes. And of course, our famous Sandbox! Proceeds support Dallas Afterschool's mission to improve the quality and availability of afterschool and summer programs in our community.   

Embrace your inner child while investing in quality afterschool for Dallas County students!
