We’d never turn down a dessert party — especially one that benefits an organization as impactful as AIDS Services of Dallas, which supports individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS via affordable housing, advocacy and education.

Two thousand sweet-toothed devotees flocked to the Frontiers of Flight Museum for the eighth annual fete themed “Desserts a Go-Go.” That made for some serious eye candy, with hot go-go dancers (who borrowed outfits from the glamorous Jan Strimple), 25 treat-filled tables and flowing cocktails.

Fueled by sugar, supporters in 1960s-inspired fashions bid high on 400 silent auction items and luxurious live auction packages. DJ Mark Ridlen provided the beats, and a surprise performance by the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers and Drum Corps kept the energy level high.

But perhaps the sweetest moment of the night came when Don Neubauer was presented with the Sheila Dolezal Humanitarian Award for his endless volunteer work and dedication to AIDS Services of Dallas.

Spotted indulging on the scene: co-chairs David Nelson and Dennis Kershner, honorary chair Steve Kemble, ASD president Don Maison, LeeAnne Locken, D’Andra Simmons, Priya Rathod, Quia Querisma, Taylor Blacksmith, TJ Wilson, and Samantha Davies.
