From the article “Nora’s Home Hosts a $750,000 Party at Houston’s Hottest New Hotel

Gala chairs Paige and Todd Johnson, Ashley and Curt Langley, and Ann and John Smither led the dinner evening, attended by more than 550 guests, to a generous $750,000 in proceeds. The funds will aid in the expansion of the hospitality home for organ transplant patients and their families. Phase two of the Nora’s Home project is expected to be completed this summer thereby doubling the number of rooms to 32.
Emceed by Lisa Malosky, the evening honored Linda Strickland and her late husband, Jerry Strickland. The couple was recognized for its long-time support of the non-profit. Also in the spotlight were Drs. Lillian and Osama Gaber, who founded Nora’s Home in 2013.Shelby Hodge
