After just opening their new and improved facility, Dallas-based nonprofit AIN — which serves Dallas’s HIV-positive community — will be hosting their annual fall fundraiser this Saturday with a Flashback to the 80’s.

AIN is gearing up to host its second biggest fundraiser of the year with a fun-filled themed night that focuses on raising money for the nonprofit. All money raised will benefit AIN and its clients all through the Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding metroplex who are diagnosed or at risk of HIV. AIN serves over 2,000 people and hopes to help eradicate the disease once and for all. Through this Fall Fundraiser AIN will help raise money that supports all these people, and any sponsors willing to give money will know that their proceeds go towards raising brand awareness of AIN and helping to foster relationships with all clients from many different backgrounds.

In 2016, AIN decided on the concept “Flashback” after collaborating with Vintage Martini for a 1960’s themed dance fundraiser entitled “The Sands”. It was a remarkable success by putting the ‘fun’ in ‘fundraising’, and the event was covered in multiple Press coverages. This year promises to blow the roof off last year’s event.

ainfb AIN Hosts Flashback to the 80's Fall FundraiserAIN is presenting “Flashback to the 80’s”, a themed dance fundraiser that will raise money for the clients and communities of AIN and help support over nine programs and thousands of individuals. The event has been designed to capture the essence and fun of the 1980’s by the Event Chairs Ken Weber and Greg Kelly. “Flashback to the 80’s” promises to keep everyone entertained with LIVE 80: The Ultimate 80’s Experience, a ten-piece band that won’t stop bringing live 1980’s hits for the crowd to dance the night away to. There will also be four vintage arcade games that were staples of the 80’s, sure to pull everyone back into the nostalgic days of playing for hours at their local arcades wanting that next high score; and what’s the 80’s without an old-school photobooth that will be there to capture all the memories of the night. Don’t forget the essentials of cocktail bites and an open bar to enjoy all night.

When asked about the party by About Magazine, volunteer coordinator Miranda Grant said this:

“We are so excited for AIN’s Flashback to the 80’s Fundraiser event this Saturday. We experience a slowdown in funding across the fall and throw this fundraiser to help bridge the gap. Funds from this event benefit AIN’s clients, especially helping to provide medical transportation and hot meals through the cold months. This cocktail-style fundraiser allows our supporters to party with a purpose!”

VIP and General Admission tickets are still available to purchase via the AIN website So, buy your tickets now and come join AIN and the community at Lofty Spaces on Saturday, October 20th to enjoy a fun-filled night full of entertainment, dancing, and, above all, the ability to give back to the community and be a part of helping nine different programs and thousands of clients through AIN.
