The journey to a new Resource Center Dallas became a little shorter Saturday with the demolition of the strip center at the site of RCD’s future home near Cedar Springs and Inwood roads.
“Brunch & Bulldozers” brought music and food trucks to entertain the crowd throughout the three-hour event. Dozens of attendants paid $5 each for the chance to swing a sledge hammer at the brick building, denting the walls and even shattering some windows.
Roughly 300 people attended the event, RCD Capital Campaign Manager Mack Campbell said.
“This was the first public awareness event for the capital campaign,” Campbell said. “We had great participation from the community.”
While the amount raised on Saturday was still being calculated, Campbell put the figure at more than $10,000, which will be added to the $4 million already raised for the new $12 million building.
