Preston Hollow neighbor Joni McCoy is chairing the April 27 Hope Gala at the Dallas House of Blues. Operation Kindness is a nonprofit shelter and the original and largest no-kill animal shelter in North Texas. McCoy has supported the group for the last 16 years.

“I absolutely fell in love with Operation Kindness from the moment I walked through their door,” McCoy said in a statement. “I know each and every animal inside those walls are getting the love and affection they need.”

For more than 40 years, Operation Kindness has never turned away an animal. For more information about the annual Hope Gala, visit
