Night Fever: Fashions from Funk to Disco – an exhibition of ‘70s-era fashion – kicked off Sept. 20 at the Galleria.

Spanning through Nov. 1, the annual exhibition features a sensory explosion of music, light, video, imagery, and diverse, couture collections from the iconic decade.

Following the success of last year’s 1920s fashion exhibition, the center educates visitors on historical fashions in comparison to modern designs.

Nearly 280 guests attended the 3rd Annual Outlive Yourself Awards Oct. 2, 2017 at Union Station in downtown Dallas. The event was presented by Methodist Dallas Transplant Institute benefiting Taylor’s Gift Foundation. Honorary Chair and Master of Ceremonies Kristi Nelson of NBC 5 entertained guests throughout the evening with a lineup including co-founders Tara and Todd Storch; Joe Winters, husband of Taylor’s heart recipient and Arnetta Wright, an organ transplant recipient who received the gift of life while being treated at Methodist.

The highlight of the event was celebrating the two amazing honorees: Dr. Tiffany Anthony, a transplant surgeon at Baylor Scott & White, and Terri Maxwell, founder and CEO of Share On Purpose.

Residents Remember Mary Goodloe as Kind, Creative, Caring

It’s been more than 22 years since Mary Goodloe died in the rushing waters that flooded McFarlin Boulevard in 1995, and her husband still struggles to find just one word to exemplify a woman who encompassed so much.

Mary Goodloe was a first-grade teacher, whose now-grown students vividly remember the Smurf village in her classroom; how she’d dress up like the Pink Panther; and when she’d pass out candy canes around Christmastime to spread joy around University Park Elementary School.

She is remembered as kind, as the type of woman who would sing in the halls, as creative, as fun, and as caring.

The 13th annual No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party kickoff was held on Sept. 14 (North Texas Giving Day) at Scott + Cooner.

To represent the 2018 No Tie Dinner theme, models were adorned in '80s prom attire, complete with blue eye shadow and teased hair. The kickoff event raised more than $14,000 for AIDS Services of Dallas (ASD), a nonprofit that has been providing housing and supportive services since 1987 for low income and formerly homeless individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS.

‘No’ Vote Would Close Bus Service

This month, Dallas County voters will determine the fate of an embattled taxing entity that provides bus services for several independent school districts in North Texas.

Highland Park ISD and Dallas ISD are weighing their options on how to proceed if voters shutter Dallas County Schools, the recipient of a one-cent property tax charged to those living within Dallas County.

Dallas ISD officials have prepared a plan for operating an in-house bus system should the agency be dissolved, but HPISD administrators are a little less certain of how they’d accommodate 24 special needs students reliant on the service.

Defense Lifts Scots Past Poteet

MESQUITE — While the high-powered Highland Park offense usually grabs the headlines, on Friday the defense stole the show for the Scots.

HP endured season highs in both turnovers and penalty yardage, yet still pulled away for a 28-9 win over Mesquite Poteet at Mesquite Memorial Stadium.

That was due in large part to the HP defense, which recorded seven sacks, caused two critical turnovers, and surrendered just 75 total yards after halftime.
