100 kids have sleepover at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium as part of Ashley Furniture charity event
The eyes of about 100 kids widened as they ran onto the field at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Friday. Each of them rushed to a bed set up on the field where Dallas Cowboy swag awaited. Sure, they were there for a sleepover, but sleep was the last thing on their minds.
The Dallas Cowboys and Ashley Furniture HomeStore hosted 100 underserved children this weekend in what’s been deemed the “ultimate sleepover experience.” The kids take part in on-field games and entertainment with Dallas Cowboys players and cheerleaders, eat pizza and watch a movie on the giant center-hung video board.
After the sleepover, Ashley Furniture delivers the beds to each child’s home to keep.
A portion of the proceeds from every mattress purchase at local Ashley Furniture HomeStores benefit children in need. Families in need of beds and mattresses can be nominated by friends, family members and social service organizations at www.ahopetodream.com.
