Metro Ball ’08, an annual fundraiser for the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund, is set for Saturday, June 7 at Station 4, 3911 Cedar Springs Road.

The dance party, now in its third year, will feature aerial artist Neal Everett and DJ "Frankie Ice." Raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each or three for $10 for a chance to win a 37-inch HDTV flatscreen tv.

The organization staging the event is named after Greg Dollgener, who died of AIDS in 2004. It was formed by his friends in an effort to carry on the work he did to help others suffering with the disease.

Proceeds from Metro Ball will benefit five HIV/AIDS service organizations in North Texas. GDMF officials said the agency will help more than 150 people and distribute more than $50,000 this year. They also noted the agency relies solely on donations and receives no federal grants.

Advance tickets are $20, available online at www.gdmaf.org and at Skivvies, 4001-C Cedar Springs Road. VIP packages are also available that include access to a private VIP room, reserved parking and appetizers provided by Hector’s on Henderson.

Tickets at the door are $25.
