No Tie Dinner 2017
Great Time With Great Friends For A Great Cause!!
What an amazing time with friends and counterparts this Saturday past at No Tie Dinner. This annual event is in its twelfth year and is a benefit to raise funds for AIDS Services of Dallas, which provides housing and supportive services for low-income and formerly homeless men, women, children and families living with HIV/AIDS. Any time we can combine an over-zealous lust for life with the opportunity to give back to our community, well that's a great day!
Guests arrived at our Nathan Grace Park Cities office at Lovers Lane and the Tollway. There is a lot that goes on at this crossroads by way of being a hub for the buying and selling of homes as well as being able to shop and eat to your heart's content! It was a quick stop just to gather guests, get everyone acquainted have some wine and cheese and head across the way.
We partnered with our fantastic friends at Dr. Delphinium. Charles Ingrum, Sarah Armond and Myranda Hausheer created a beautiful seated dinner in their greenhouse - it was stunning and delicious and I feel like I'm giving up a great secret, but if you need to host any sort of networking event or workshop, you should reach out to them. Several guests went on shopping sprees after dinner and Sarah arranged for their products to be delivered in the coming days. What a great c0-hostess and friend!
From there, we were off to the Frontiers of Flight Museum for what has to be one of the largest auction / dessert / dance parties in the state! I'm not sure what the final tally was for Rusell Berry, but he was workin' that auction like it was his job! And special thanks to my buddy, Michael Owen for allowing me to ride up the valet with him in that beautiful vintage convertible!
Heartfelt thanks to the rest of the fantastic guests and supporters - Kevin Caskey, Bob "Mortgage" Johnson and his sweet wife Jennifer, Stephanie Jayko and her date Russell Perrard, my new friend and great client Jorge Ayala, Laura Crowl and Judith Abbott.
Mark your calendars - we hope for this to be an annual event for us!
