Red Tie Night’s Red-Letter Day

An elegant fundraiser for fighting HIV/AIDS



Red Tie Night co-chairs Wendy and Ethan House

 

One of OKC’s foremost social events is painting the town red, as the 27th annual Red Tie Night returns March 9 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Proceeds benefit the Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund and its efforts to support organizations and individuals affected by HIV/AIDS.

“While our understanding of the disease has increased each year, so have the numbers affected by it,” said Ethan House, who co-chairs the 2019 event with his wife, Wendy. “The money from Red Tie Night stays right here in Oklahoma and assures Oklahomans there is help just around the corner. They know they can come to the OACF for support, year after year.”

Since the late Jackie Cooper founded it with his wife Barbara and a small group of volunteers in 1991, OACF has provided more than $15 million in funds for support, education, advocacy and resources to end HIV/AIDS. Life-saving treatments developed in the mid-1990s transformed HIV/AIDS to a more manageable illness. Still, those who are infected need a lifetime of treatment, and the need for increased funding in Oklahoma remains strong.

“Those who have attended know the evening is filled with wonderful food and entertainment,” House says. “It is a chance to get together with friends and colleagues to raise money and awareness, but also for a festive evening of dinner, dancing and entertainment. Wendy and I are humbled to host this year’s Red Tie Night, and hope 405 Magazine readers will join us in supporting the OACF.”
