“Do you think HIV/AIDs is no longer a crisis?
“Tell that to all the people in Dallas who have lost their jobs, their healthcare, their homes, and almost everything but their dignity. The crisis isn’t over until there is a cure. That’s why there is AIDS Services of Dallas. ASD is a long-standing non-profit which provides housing, 24-hour home health care, medical and social management, transportation and volunteer support to low-income and formerly homeless men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS. It provides a home when there is no place else to turn.
“Now in its 11th year, No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party has grown tremendously to make it the largest fundraiser for ASD. As our event has grown, so have our fundraising goals and ambitions.
“It is our holiday wish to make No Tie’s ‘Night of Housing’ campaign goal a reality. The campaign is to provide 365 days of housing for ASD residents by the end of the year. One day of care costs $40.62 per individual, or a total of $14,826.30. Please help our wish come true by donating here or for additional sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, contact Kristi Holman at [email protected].
