Here’s the press release that just came across from RCD’s Rafael McDonnell:

Dallas — Resource Center Dallas will hold a formal dedication August 6 (Friday) at 10 a.m. for an ice machine it bought as a result of its “Hell Freezes Over” counter-protest of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC). Dallas Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Pauline Medrano is expected to attend.

WBC protested the Center and Congregation Beth El Binah, a mainstream Reform Jewish congregation which meets at the center, on July 9. The “Hell Freezes Over” fundraising counter-protest was launched July 1 and ran through July 19. Donors were asked to give 50 cents or a dollar a minute for the 30 minutes of the scheduled protest. The fundraiser raised nearly $11,000 and drew contributions from Texas and seven other states. It was the most successful counter-protesting fundraiser in Texas against WBC, and one of the most successful ever nationwide.

A plaque will also be unveiled in honor of the people who donated to “Hell Freezes Over” and to Westboro Baptist for serving as the donors’ inspiration.
