Make My Day Monday is a grass roots movement started by hockey agent Scott Norton to help someone in need every Monday. The distinction of "MMDM" is not to focus on a dollar amount or a specific organization, but to behave with a sense of strong morality and support for the community. A bit of a "pay it forward" mentality, the movement encourages people to do something, no matter how small, for someone else. Some choose to donate to charity. Some choose to pay for the coffee of the person behind them at Starbucks. It could be helping someone change a flat tire. No gesture is too small for MMDM.
The organization has been putting together several events in the United States so far, and next week they bring MMDM to Dallas for the first time. They'll be hosting a happy hour at Sfuzzi in Uptown Monday, September 10th from 6 to 8 PM. Sfuzzi will be offering complimentary pizza as well as happy hour pricing throughout the event. The event will also feature a raffle for some pretty awesome prizes. Tickets to a future Dallas Stars game, lower level tickets to a Rangers game, Stars and Rangers gear from Sassy Swag, and much more.
Current Dallas Stars forward and Norton Sports client Ryan Garbutt will be in attendance. Other confirmed guests include Scott Norton himself as well as fellow Dallas Stars forward Tomas Vincour. There's no telling who else could show up!
Uber Dallas, a car service you can order and pay for from an app on your phone, is partnering with MMDM to offer 1/2 price rides to and from the event. Use promo code "UberMMDM" to get 50% off your ride between 4 and 10 PM Monday night!
This is a great chance for Stars fans to come out and get to meet and greet current Stars players while helping out a worthy cause. All of the proceeds from the event will benefit Heroes for Children. This charity supports children and families of children diagnosed with cancer within the local area. Heroes for Children recently used donations to decorate the room of eight year old cancer patient Courtney, who received a transplant recently. She will be stuck in her room for several weeks so as to not catch any infections that could cause her to have complications, so having a bright bed spread, wall decor, and throw rug helps to break up the monotony of the stark white room and lift her spirits at the same time.
Sfuzzi is located at 2533 McKinney Avenue in Dallas. A suggested donation of $20 is recommended, but not required, to support Heroes for Children.
