Busy weekend? Want to order lunch for your staff? No time to cook? Support Rainbow Days (and stay out of the kitchen) with i Fratelli. Rainbow Days is partnering up with i Fratelli for a fundraiser on Monday, June 4. When you place your order for delivery from any location (or dine in at i Fratelli Ristorante & Wine Bar in Irving) be sure to mention “Rainbow Days” and they will receive 15% of your purchase total. Offer is available all day during their regular business hours – 11 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Pre-orders are welcome and you may call before 11 a.m. to place the order. It’s the best thin-n-crispy crust pizza in the Metroplex—for a great cause!
Rainbow Days, Inc. (RDI) was founded in 1982 in Dallas, TX by current Chief Executive Officer, Cathey Brown. Cathey began the first support group for young children of alcoholics in the Dallas area. During the weekly support group sessions, the children discussed how to manage their feelings, cope with problems and make healthy choices. The demand for these groups grew rapidly. With the increased need, Rainbow Days began implementing support groups in schools, shelters, and other community locations throughout the Dallas community.
Now, 30 years later, RDI has expanded services to include an array of alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) prevention programs and has served nearly 140,000 children in the Dallas community alone. In addition, we have trained more than 37,000 professionals across Dallas, the state of Texas and the nation in how to implement at least one of RDI’s support groups or other accredited prevention programs with children in their own communities.

Texas Trees Foundation
The Texas Trees Foundation has a vision for our community. It is a community comprised of beautiful, well maintained parks, shady tree-lined streets and boulevards, hiking, biking and nature trails, and other outdoor amenities which combine to form a living and working environment that enhances the economic value of its commercial areas and its neighborhoods, and nurtures the health, safety and quality of life of all its citizens; a community in which its citizens actively participate in building and sustaining its “urban forest.” The Foundation will serve as a catalyst in creating such a community.
