Philanthropy

4th Annual Santa Pub Crawl Lifestyle Frisco is the OFFICIAL MEDIA SPONSOR of the 4th Annual Frisco Santa Pub Crawl. It’s back and they’ve raised the bar (in more ways than one!). The Frisco Santa Pub Crawl is more than just a chance for responsible adults to pretend they’re in college again for one night. A 501c3 nonprofit organization (under the name Frisco Santa Charities), their mission is to rally the community and raise funds that make a direct impact in North Texas. This year the beneficiary is Frisco Fastpacs, a local charity whose mission is to ensure that no child in Frisco has to endure hunger outside of school hours. The final stop on the crawl is The Concrete Cowboy at The Star where you can take pics to commemorate the evening and become #FriscoFamous in front of our step-and-repeat board! 
UPDATE:  This event is sold out with a waiting list. Be a part of the event by supporting the online silent auction – there are some spectacular Frisco deals available
