(Press release) Among spectacular chandeliers, luxury Italian furniture, and a full-size red horse lamp at Scott + Cooner Showroom, No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party, benefiting AIDS Services of Dallas, hosted its kick-off reception to announce exciting details about the main event, and to get the party and fundraising season started! Now in its eleventh year, the 2016 No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party, presented by the Purple Foundation, returns to its humble beginning and foundation: life. Themed “You Only Live Twice,” inspired by the James Bond film and Nancy Sinatra song by the same name, the much-anticipated event celebrates ASD’s mission and journey over the last 25+ years to improve the lives of economically disadvantaged individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS. Hosted by No Tie Chair David Nelson, ASD’s largest fundraiser begins with a dinner hosted at various homes throughout DFW. An expected 1,500+ attendees then unite and feast on desserts and cocktails, DJ and dancing, live and silent auctions, and surprise performances throughout the magical evening. The 2016 No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party, presented by Purple Foundation, will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2016 starting at 7:00 p.m., at the Frontiers of Flight Museum (6911 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas, TX, 75209).
