Ten for 10, a new nonprofit co-founded by Preston Hollow resident Pamela Bordlee, launches on May 2 with a party from 8-11 p.m. at Off the Grid, 1723 Kelly (the historic Dallas Power and Light building). The nonprofit’s mission is to provide clean drinking water to people in Sub-Saharan Africa. Advance tickets are $50 per person when you make a reservation online, or $60 per person at the door; the cost includes wine, beer and an assortment of hors d’oeuvres, plus covers the cost of one person’s drinking water for 10 years. Proceeds will go to the installation of manual water pump systems in rural African communities. To make a reservation online, or to learn more, visit tenfor10.org.
