Mayor Rawlings Partners with Eddie V's Prime Seafood to Reduce Domestic Violence

DALLAS --(Business Wire)--

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings has partnered with local fine-dining favorite, Eddie V's Prime Seafood, for the restaurant's annual "White Hot Summer Night" Celebrity Charity Dinner on August 5. Tickets are available now for the four course dinner, by Executive Chef Brian Dietz, with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to the Mayor's Dallas Men Against Abuse campaign.

Taking place in Eddie V's distinguished Big D room, the intimate event will accommodate up to 96 guests dressed in white cocktail attire, during which Mayor Rawlings will speak on behalf of the campaign. The event will also include a raffle with anticipated prizes generously donated by Eddie V's and the campaign's additional sponsors.

"I appreciate Eddie V's support of our efforts to attach a stigma to men who commit these senseless, horrific acts of domestic violence," Mayor Rawlings said. "This event will enable us to teach more men and boys that you can call a guy who hits a woman a lot of things, but man is not one of them."

Thousand of men joined Mayor Rawlings in March last year at the Dallas Men Against Abuse rally to take a stand against domestic violence. In response to the campaign, reported domestic violence offenses in Dallas decreased by 26 percent, and calls for help by women and families seeking support increased by 119 percent.

"We are thrilled to partner with the Mayor for the Dallas Men Against Abuse campaign as part of our second annual White Hot Summer Nights Event," said Eddie V's Dallas Managing Partner Richard Lopez. "This year we wanted to host a dinner that supports a local charity that not only serves a great cause, but specifically the Dallas community."

The "White Hot Summer Night" Celebrity Charity Dinner will take place at Eddie V's, located at 4023 Oak Lawn Ave. in Dallas, TX. For ticket purchases, please contact at 214.890.1500 or email The cost per plate is $350; however, eight and 16 top tables are available for discounted rates. In addition to the Mayor's partnership with Eddie V's, the campaign efforts will continue into the fall months, focused on spreading awareness during "Domestic Violence Awareness Month" in October.
