National Donor Day 2022:  Read Hugh’s Story

ReCept Pharmacy, proud sponsor of the Evening of Hope Gala benefits Aids Outreach

 In News

When you wish upon a star it is an expression of hope — hope for something good, something better in the future.

And the “Wish Upon a Star” theme for the Evening of Hope gala set for Saturday at the Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel is the same. The event is the expression of hope for a better future for those suffering from HIV/AIDS.

The party is an evening of cocktails, dinner, awards, dancing and a fashion show in style overdrive. The event bursts with glamour, but behind the stalking models and high fashion lies a profoundly important cause: supporting the Aids Outreach Center as it raises money for HIV/AIDS education, advocacy and services.

Co-chairing the event are David Adcock and Scott Green, who are in good company with honorary chair Betty Buckley. Emcee will be WFAA sports anchor Dale Hansen, and the keynote speaker will be Dan Freemyer of Broadway Baptist Church. And turning in their usual solid performance will be Trey and the Tri Tones as they beckon dancers to take a spin on the dance floor.

“Evening of Hope represents the largest single fundraising effort by AIDS Outreach Center. I think that Fort Worth sees the need and understands the positive impact that AOC has on people’s lives,” Green said.

“The challenge is to provide continuing care, coupled with dignity and respect, to those folks who are living with HIV/AIDS,” he said. “This is the opportunity for each of us to come together and make this happen.”

Awards of Inspiration in three categories will be presented to Clint Bradley (individual), the Meadows Foundation (foundation) and JPS Healing Wings Outpatient Clinic (corporate).

Guests will be wowed by a fashion parade showcasing a collection of must-haves by big-name designers Misook and Escada. And adding to the festivities will be fabulous raffles and auctions featuring a 1.24-carat diamond from Kubes, a weeklong Caribbean island vacation and a designer garment by Misook.
