The black-tie optional masked ball boasts cocktails on the rooftop terrace followed by dinner, a live auction, and dancing, with Alisha Laventure as emcee.

Nexus’s specialty is substance abuse services for women, mothers, children, and teen girls. They are committed to the mission of giving quality services and care to low-income women and children. It was established in 1971 and within three years had provided therapy, housing, and life skills training for 17 women. They moved to Dallas in 1990 to expand their space as well as offer a wider array of services. With the expansion, they were able to let children go to treatment with their mothers.

To date, Nexus has helped more than 20,000 women, adolescents, and children on their road to recovery.
