What: BvB Dallas Noche de Neon Pool Party

Where: Sisu Uptown Resort

The 411: For the third year in a row, BvB hosted an afternoon summer pool party that lingered into night time at Sisu. This year's theme, "Noche de Neon," was inspired by the colorful movie Coco. The critically acclaimed animated film is about celebrating Dia de los Muertos but also touches on Alzheimer's, as the main character's great grandmother starts to lose her memories.

The Dallas YP group sipped sparkling cocktails courtesy of Mighty Swell, and DJ Jesse Koo kept the summer beats going. About 400 people in attendance helped raise nearly $9,000 at the party.

BvB Dallas is a young professionals organization that hosts a powder-puff football game — this year, on August 11 — for fun, fellowship, and as a way of raising money for Alzheimer’s research and awareness. Founded by sisters whose father was afflicted by Alzheimer’s, BvB is a personal way for young professionals across the country to raise awareness, funds, and support to help tackle Alzheimer's forever.
