Furniture retailer, Dallas Cowboys give kids a sleepover to remember


For 100 impoverished children in the Dallas area, it was a night they won’t soon forget.

For the second consecutive year, Ashley HomeStore and the Dallas Cowboys teamed up to host the “ultimate sleepover experience” on the field at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

The kids got to take part in on-field games and entertainment with the Dallas Cowboys players and cheerleaders, eat pizza and watch a movie on the stadium’s gigantic 160-ft. video screen.

Also on the field: 100 new beds, each of them bearing the name of one of the kids at the event and each one decked out outfitted with Cowboys sheets and bed spreads and such extras as footballs, Cowboys team photos and teddy bears. The next morning, each child’s bed was delivered to their home.

“Ashley HomeStore and the Levitz Family are proud to join with the Dallas Cowboys to support the Hope To Dream charity,” said Michael Levitz, president of Ashley Furniture HomeStore. “Hope To Dream was established in 2010 to help provide beds for deserving children without a bed of their own. Through this program, Hope To Dream has donated over 40,000 beds to children across the nation and around the world."

"We have a fun-filled even lined up for you guys, but it's definitely more important for you to have your own bed," Cowboys star cornerback Brandon Carr asked as he joined the kids in the locker room. "There's so much stuff going on in the world that we can't control, but we can control waking up in the morning, making our bed and coming back and crashing in our bed at night. It's as simple as that. You need sleep. Sleep is important."
