Famous for its mixture of swanky and spontaneous, guests will be entertained with dancing, cocktails, and a silent and live auction to raise funds for housing and supportive services for ASD clients. It goes without saying that guests will enjoy delicious desserts throughout the night provided by Dallas’s finest restaurants and caterers – Komali Restaurant, Dallas Affaires Cake Company, Nothing Bundt Cakes and Bread Winners Café and Bakery, to name only a few. A DJ will keep the dance floor crowded, and a surprise performance produced by Rob Cahill will ensure the event unforgettable.
