Hosted by Antèks Home Furnishings in the Dallas Design District, partygoers shopped the amazing selection of sophisticated rustic furniture, art and accessories, with 25% of their purchases for the evening and week following supporting Trinity River Mission. Chef Shaun Collins of Main & Sides—a gourmet meal delivery service, impressed guests with a meticulous presentation of hors d’ oeuvres including Blue Point oysters on the half shell with jalapeño , cilantro gelee mignonette gazpacho shooters, grilled flank steak on a potato raft with salpicon and grilled shrimp cocktail with heirloom tomato foam and guacamole cream.  Domaine Wine Company owners Lance Storer and James Gunn Moll beautifully paired Fantinel pinot grigio and Naveran Cava from their Oak Lawn Avenue shop with Chef Shaun’s delights.
