Description: Recording of the 24th Annual Dallas Fort Worth Black Tie Dinner, that raises money and awareness for current GLBT/LGBT issues and organizations. The theme of the dinner was "Imagine Tomorrow" and used kaleidoscopes to inspire much of the design. The opening of the video includes directions for finding information about the luxury items up for auction. Bob Eckelcam is the Luxury Auctioneer of the night and early on in the auction Sharon Stone comes on-stage and takes Eckelcam's place as the head auctioneer. Item donors included Natuzzi Dallas, Eiseman Jewels and Cartier, Silverseas, Waterworks, Dallas Harley Davidson, Neiman Marcus, HRC, Hewitt & Habgood Realty Group, and Sharon Stone herself. Following the auction the dinner's co-chairs introduce Eric and Sheryl Maas, owners of Classic BMW, to perform the raffle drawing for a 2006 BMW 325i. At the end Lily Tomlin delivers the closing keynote address and performs a few of her comedy skits.
