The Star in Frisco and the National Soccer Hall of Fame are taking part in the #LightItBlue initiative that is saluting the millions of essential workers providing services during the crisis.
“This is a heartfelt ‘thank you’ from those of us at home to those of us who are going to work each day to keep our country going,” Joe Zenas, Thinkwell Group CEO and lead organizer of the movement, said in a news release.
Dallas Cowboys spokesperson Joe Trahan said the team will be participating in the ceremony on the video board outside the Ford Center at The Star as well as at AT&T Stadium.
Gina Miller, vice president of media and communications for FC Dallas, said the club is partnering with Toyota Stadium, North Texas Soccer Club and the National Soccer Hall of Fame to take part in the initiative.
“We're going to light the scarf on the front of the National Soccer Hall of Fame, which faces Main Street right across from Frisco Square—we're going to light that blue tomorrow night,” Miller said. “The scarf can be illuminated a variety of colors, and it's such a pretty image.”
Other Dallas-area landmarks slated to participate in the initiative include One Arts Plaza, the Dallas skyline, Cotton Bowl Stadium, Omni Dallas Hotel, Bank of America Plaza, American Airlines Center and the Dallas Sports Commission.
Organizers are encouraging individuals to participate in the tribute at home by wearing blue on April 9 and sharing #LightItBlue images and messages on social media.
