Saturday’s No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party should be renamed. It should be the Do Dance Dessert Party. The sixth annual NTD&DP at the Frontiers Flight Museum was just getting into gear when most other events were closing down for the night.
While a great number of the neck-wear-less checked out the dessert around the facility as well as the silent auction items, the dance floor was getting its share of action. The emphasis was disco at one point with
Stacey Susilli in the spotlight. First she was dancing with Julie Adler and before you could tap your toe three times she sharing the floor with Jose Cruz.
It’s hard to imagine that so much fun was benefiting a still very necessary program — AIDS Services of Dallas. As one person noted, AIDS has not gone away. It’s still very much affecting all aspects of the community and funds are vital to combat the disease.
