One perk for guests at the Hotel Palomar in Dallas is the Wine Hour they host in the evenings. Last week, the hotel opened the event to the public and combined it with a fundraiser for the Promise of Peace Community Garden. The Ackermans provided musical entertainment. Promise of Peace is a non-profit active in East Dallas that aims to reduce the school dropout rate, reduce crime, gang involvement and teen pregnancy through local initiatives that increase community involvement. The organization’s two main activities are the community garden on East Grand and photography classes.
Hotel Palomar provided ‘lite bites’ from Central 214, the Hotel’s restaurant, along with wine to accompany them. Hotel Palomar has supported the Promise of Peace Community garden in the past, including providing the irrigation system.
Promise of Peace’s next event is Eco Fest on April 15th from noon to 5pm at the garden.
