2016 was a fantastic year for The LOT Downtown! A big thank you to The City of Mansfield, Baylor Orthopedic and Spine Hospital of Arlington and all of our sponsors, and especially all of the volunteers that helped to deliver some great entertainment to the community.
Are We Related was a benefit concert that raised over $10,000 dollars and featured performances by several local churches. The funds were presented to Senior Corporal Ivan Saldana, a Dallas Police Officer and Mansfield resident, who was injured in the line of duty.
During Are We Related, children and local law enforcement gathered for an impromptu “dance off” on stage. A video of Mansfield Officer Joe Alejandro dancing went viral, with 132,000 views to date and more across social media and was featured on local media outlets.
One City One Voice, the idea of local entrepreneur and longtime Mansfield resident Melisa Dalton Perez, featured a night of worship music performed on The LOT stage and welcomed citizens from all walks of life to come together.
