Charlie Calise of Calise Partners receives Humanitarian Award

Charlie Calise, President of Dallas’ Calise Partners, was recently honored with the Sheila Dolezal Humanitarian Award by AIDS Services of Dallas (ASD) for his volunteerism and support of the non-profit. The award was given at the 2018 No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party, presented by the Purple Foundation, which is the largest fundraiser for ASD.

Calise Partners donated creative services to rebrand and market the No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party for nearly a decade. The integrated marketing agency also created a new logo and “A Home for Life” campaign for ASD, while Charlie Calise also served as a member of ASD’s Board of Trustees for several years. He was honored at the event alongside Don Neubauer, president and managing partner of Siter-Neubauer & Associates, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his support of ASD.

“No Tie and ASD wouldn’t be where they are today without the help of these individuals, and we are happy to honor them through these prestigious awards,” said Leslie Frye, No Tie Chair.
