We’re seeing red.
And no, not still from the weekend visit of Trump, Pence and the NRA. The good kind of seeing red. As in Red Party.
Next weekend, the Dallas Red Foundation celebrates the tenth (!) Red Party with an exotic theme to die for: Red Dragon: The Forbidden City. Taking inspiration from the real Forbidden City in China, then bringing in other global influences, the evening promises to be one for the scrapbook.
Tickets are only $45 for advance-purchase general admission (they go up to $60 at the door) and $125 for VIP (advance purchase only). VIP ticket holders will enjoy an exclusive pre-party with hors-d’oeuvres, a preview of the live and silent auction items, plus a private bar during the event serving Stoli Elite cocktails.
All attendees will enjoy a Stoli vodka open bar, as well as wine, plus entertainment by your Miss Red Queen, Gloria Devine.
The whole shindig is hosted by LeeAnne Locken and Brad Pritchett. Proceeds from the party benefit local HIV/AIDS organizations, including the great work of Legacy Counseling Center. So start shopping for something ravishing and red.
Unlike the title of the evening, almost nothing’s forbidden.
