Vogel Alcove


Formerly Day 1 Dallas, Day 1 DFW is a New Year’s Day event created for families to have fun together on the holiday. All proceeds from the event benefit Vogel Alcove, a nonprofit for homeless children and their families. This year we created an event with consideration for the health and safety of everyone due to Covid-19; there are 3 safe ways to play on New Year’s Day.
