The No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party is an intentionally casual affair. However, this is Dallas, so some panache is to be expected — if not required. When it came time to honor event patrons, Tricia Sims threw open the doors to her posh Preston Hollow pad for an affair with flair.

Co-chairs Dennis Kershner and David Nelson and honorary chair LeeAnne Locken greeted more than 200 guests — including Don Maison, D’Andra Simmons, Don Neubauer, Les Siter, Dr. Allen Berg, George Milner, Patricia Deason, Jody O’Donnell, Sterling Deason O’Donnell and Samantha Davies — who enjoyed drinks and mouth-watering hors d’oeuvre from Hattie’s. Max Winningham on bass provided the background sounds.

The No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party, themed “La Dolce Vita,” is set for April 12 at Frontiers of Flight Museum. The event raises 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.

Tickets are just $50 and may be purchased online or at the door.
