Visit the Rachofsky House (for charity)
Modern art and design pieces for a good cause? A special "in" to see a famous Dallas modern home? It's time for the next installment of the Two by Two benefit and auction! Since its inception, the event has raised over $10 million. Two by Two is holding its eight-annual fundraiser for amfAR and the Dallas Museum of Art. The gala weekend of events is one of the DFW area's largest AIDS research charitable events. The auction features art and design pieces from a mixture of notorious artists. A fulLed off with an invitation-only preview party on Tuesday October 24th, the week proceeds through to Thursday's First Look, a "fashion forward, music filled and culinary delightful evening." Both events take place in the Rachofsky House, known to most as the eye-catching modern Richard Meier edifice on Preston Road. The $150 per ticket black tie event (tickets still available) features entertainment and the first opportunity to bid on silent auction pieces. There's also an after party at Ghost Bar at the W. The (sold-out) dinner benefit and auction is held on Saturday night. If you'd rather just visit the house, tours are given by appointment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Or you could keep rubbernecking while driving down Preston.
