“I am glad you’re here.
“24HourDallas evolved from a government affairs initiative of the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association four years ago. It is now its own non-profit organization and many of our members are involved.
“24HourDallas’ new Copper Star program will provide an excellent opportunity for member restaurants to take a leadership role in Dallas’ nighttime economy, making Dallas safer, more inclusive, and more economically vibrant. Copper Star participants will also have the opportunity to forge proactive relationships with city and state regulatory agencies.
“I encourage you to sign up for this free program. Let’s be sure that GDRA restaurants are recognized for their excellence.”
Rose Broussard-Harvey, President
Greater Dallas Restaurant Association
