AIDS Services of Dallas Throws a Sweet Bollywood Bash
Guests descended upon the Frontiers of Flight Museum on Saturday, March 28 for the 10th Annual No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party, presented by the Purple Foundation. This year, the “Meet Me Under the Yum Yum Tree” theme lent the bash an exotic, Bollywood flair in fashion, music, cocktails to raise funds for AIDS Services of Dallas (ASD). Close to 2,000 guests indulged in a vast array of delectable desserts from 20 of the city’s finest establishments including Bread Winners Cafe, Celebrity Café & Bakery, and Komali, among others. The event was led by an all-star committee including Co-Chairs David Nelson and Dennis Kershner, Honorary Chairs Jody and Sterling O’Donnell, and Media Ambassador Amy Vanderoef. Joe Pacetti received the Sheila Dolezal Humanitarian Award for his volunteerism and unbounded support throughout the years. Other notable sociables included ASD President and CEO Don Maison, Tricia Sims and beau Richard Burcham, Don Neubauer, Patricia Deason, Todd Whitley, Prashi Shah, LeeAnne Locken, Marie Reyes, Tiffany Hendra, Cary Deuber, Stephanie Hollman, Brandi Redmond and many others.

Refreshments provided by William Grant & Sons and Ben E. Keith were savored, especially No Tie’s 2015 signature “The Bollywood” cocktail, a vibrant, exotic mix of Reyka Vodka, Fever-Tree Ginger Beer, and lime juice. Numerous guests were clad in traditional Eastern ensembles in vibrant colors and prints - many donning the gorgeous costuming attire and accessories of Dallas-based fashion and set designer Prashe. The evening comprised of festive dance performances, energetic party-flavored tunes spun by DJ Brandon Olds, and a silent and live auction with such items as a breathtaking trip to Belize and weekend getaway with a Model S Tesla rental and king suite overnight stay at the Highland Dallas Hotel. The mission of ASD is to create and strengthen healthy communities through the delivery of quality, affordable, service-enriched housing for individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS who are economically disadvantaged and to coordinate a broad range of direct services and programs, including advocacy and education. ASD’s mission includes advocacy, education, and the development of affordable housing options and community development opportunities, both for its residents living with HIV/AIDS, and for economically disadvantaged people.
