Mayor Rawlings Partners with Eddie V's Prime Seafood to Reduce Domestic Violence
DALLAS --(Business Wire)--
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings has partnered with local fine-dining
V's Prime Seafood, for the restaurant's annual "White Hot Summer
Night" Celebrity Charity Dinner on August 5. Tickets are available now
for the four course dinner, by Executive Chef Brian Dietz, with a
portion of the proceeds to be donated to the Mayor's Dallas Men Against
Taking place in Eddie V's distinguished Big D room, the intimate event
will accommodate up to 96 guests dressed in white cocktail attire,
during which Mayor Rawlings will speak on behalf of the campaign. The
event will also include a raffle with anticipated prizes generously
donated by Eddie V's and the campaign's additional sponsors.
"I appreciate Eddie V's support of our efforts to attach a stigma to men
who commit these senseless, horrific acts of domestic violence," Mayor
Rawlings said. "This event will enable us to teach more men and boys
that you can call a guy who hits a woman a lot of things, but man is not
one of them."
Thousand of men joined Mayor Rawlings in March last year at the Dallas
Men Against Abuse rally to take a stand against domestic
violence. In response to the campaign, reported domestic violence
offenses in Dallas decreased by 26 percent, and calls for help by women
and families seeking support increased by 119 percent.
"We are thrilled to partner with the Mayor for the Dallas Men Against
Abuse campaign as part of our second annual White Hot Summer Nights
Event," said Eddie V's Dallas Managing Partner Richard Lopez. "This year
we wanted to host a dinner that supports a local charity that not only
serves a great cause, but specifically the Dallas community."
The "White Hot Summer Night" Celebrity Charity Dinner will take place at
Eddie V's, located at 4023 Oak Lawn Ave. in Dallas, TX. For ticket
purchases, please contact at 214.890.1500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost per plate is $350; however, eight and 16 top tables are
available for discounted rates. In addition to the Mayor's partnership
with Eddie V's, the campaign efforts will continue into the fall months,
focused on spreading awareness during "Domestic Violence Awareness
Month" in October.
