History

Who We Are – And How it All Started

In 2009, a group of friends decided to work together to make a direct impact in their community and raise money for the Legacy Counseling Center & Founders Cottage, a local organization which provides affordable and quality mental health care, substance abuse treatment, and special care housing services to people in the North Texas area who are impacted by HIV/AIDS.  Their decision to host an event that year called the Red Party attracted hundreds of attendees from the local LGBT community and would be the kick start to the Red Party becoming an annual fundraising event.

The continued success of the Red Party and its signature events eventually lead to its incorporation in 2011 as a nonprofit called the Red Party Foundation helping fortify the future of the organization and its dedication to organizations that serve those affected with HIV/AIDS.

 

In 2014, a newly elected Board of Directors developed a new strategic vision for the Foundation, focused on bringing a larger, more diverse group of community members together at its events to continue the support of the Legacy Counseling Center and provide members of the LGBT community with greater awareness of support services available to those impacted by HIV/AIDS.

 

With this new vision also came a new name – the Dallas Red Foundation.  And while the name has changed, the mission and heart of the organization has remained ever steady as a non-profit organization that produces lively and engaging events to provide financial support for organizations that serve those affected by HIV/AIDS in the North Texas Region.

 

To date, the Dallas Red Foundation has raised over $65,000 to benefit the Legacy Counseling Center and the many services they provide to the community.
