The first annual Hollywood Domino Dallas will be held at Fashion Industry Gallery (F.I.G.) on September 6 from 7:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m.  Texas-born actress Amber Heard will serve as the evening’s celebrity host on behalf of The Art of Elysium, for whom she has been a longstanding, dedicated supporter and volunteer.  With the theme of Casablanca, the old Hollywood-inspired evening will include a red carpet, cocktails, seated dinner, games, auction, live entertainment and dancing.  During the evening, Ms. Heard and guests will enjoy a friendly competition of the Hollywood Domino board game, which puts a unique twist on the classic game by creating a movie reel of domino based on the film genre.
