Second-annual G96 men’s event raises $650,000+

IMG_0209More than 200 North Texans attended a G96 men’s group fundraiser Feb. 6 to benefit women and children leaving a crisis at The Gatehouse. Donations during the Super Bowl pre-party totaled $650,000+, including a matching grant from Amon G. Carter Foundation.

All proceeds will directly support The Gatehouse’s Adopt-a-Family campaign. Thirty-eight women and 59 children are currently members of the supportive living community located in Grapevine, Texas, and another 60 families will be added in 2016 until The Gatehouse reaches its 96-family capacity.

“An organization in Tarrant County will soon be offering some long-term housing to women trying to flee abusive relationships. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price says The Gatehouse will offer counseling and education other shelters lack. “Often times they are bumped into a home of their own or an apartment of their own and their children are tossed into school and left to go on their own resources and that doesn’t work,” Price said. The facility will cover 61 acres of land on the northwest corner of DFW airport and should be open next fall. Residents there will have the ability to stay for up to two and a half years.”
