MetroBall is a fundraising event to help people with HIV/AIDS. We are expecting between 750 to 800 people to attend this year’s event. Our goal this year is to raise $60,000 to benefit the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund, a 501 (c) (3), all volunteer, non-profit organization.
In 1994, Greg Dollgener lost his struggle with AIDS. His personal strength, volunteer work, and his own commitment to provide compassionate care for those afflicted with HIV and AIDS inspired those around him.

In 1996, a group of friends who had lost many of their friends and family members to AIDS, came together and created the GDMAF in Greg’s honor so that his work and spirit could live on. With the help of people like you, the GDMAF continues to provide emergency assistance to those individuals and families who are impacted by HIV/AIDS in North Texas.

In 2006, MetroBall was born. This event continues to attract a whole new audience to the AIDS effort – young adults. The number of new cases of HIV among young adults is one of the fastest growing numbers in the United States. Our effort with MetroBall fosters awareness of HIV/AIDS to this younger audience while providing the GDMAF with a vital fund-raising event.

The MetroBall committee of the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund (GDMAF) is pleased to announce the signing of pop music icons, Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, as the headliners for its 11th annual fundraiser on June 3, 2016 at the S4 Nightclub in Dallas. The evening is always a terrific party for a great cause and features world-famous musical talent, surprise guests, a DJ-dance party, and incredible art and gifts at the Silent Auction. The tickets are now on sale at http://metroball2016.brownpapertickets.com . VIP Packages for 4 sell for $250 and individual tickets are $30 in advance.

For more than 25 years, Debbie Gibson has proven she’s an entertainer of immeasurable talent. From singer, songwriter and musician to actress and dancer, she embodies what it truly means to be an entertainer. A music prodigy, Gibson exploded on the Billboard Pop Charts at the tender age of 16 with the self-penned “Only In My Dreams.” The “Original Pop Princess” quickly became the youngest artist ever to write, produce and perform a No. 1 hit song, “Foolish Beat,” and entered the Guinness Book of World Records. To date, she is still the youngest female to hold that record. Gibson has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide, performed for British Royalty and hosted “The American Music Awards,” produced by friend and legend Dick Clark. Debbie has sold over 16 million records worldwide and has hosted the American Music Awards and starred in 17 musicals on Broadway, from “Les Miserables” to “Grease.” Just this year (2015) she received the Lifetime Achievement Award, Rockers on Broadway.

Multi-Platinum recording artist Tiffany (Darwish) has enjoyed two international #1 hit singles, “I Think We’re Alone Now” and “Could’ve Been,” selling more than 15 million albums. She has released three Top 20 US Billboard dance singles, which she helped co-write in 2007. Tiffany is very involved in the local community. She mentors young singer/songwriters, produces charity concerts for the Humane Society, and is also the Official Spokesperson for American Heart. ” Charities and local community needs are something I love helping with, it’s very fulfilling” says Tiffany.
