Dallas Purple Party 2022 weekend will officially be underway beginning with Thursday night’s opening party. We previewed the event that spans across the next five days chatting with Purple Foundation president Blake Baker. There he discussed the party’s comeback after COVID and how the event provides funds for area nonprofits. Read about it here

But first, Baker did mention another need the Foundation and the event could use — volunteers.

“We do really need volunteers to help,” he said. “We still have lots of shifts to cover.”
