2023 Gala: Wish Upon a StarYearly EventsBlog
“The best is yet to come,” was the theme of the evening as guests celebrated the highly anticipated Phase II expansion that will open later this year in the summer of 2018. The gala moved to a new location, the prestigious Post Oak hotel in Downtown Houston and the venue did not disappoint! Crowds were wowed by this glitzy Big Band Era-esque motif.
Gala chairs Paige and Todd Johnson, Ashley and Curt Langley, and Ann and John Smither led the evening–an event attended by more than 550 guests–to a generous $750,000 in proceeds. The funds will aid in the expansion of the home for organ transplant patients and their families, 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 Nora’s Home. Also in the spotlight were Drs. Lillian and Osama Gaber, who founded Nora’s Home in 2013.View Press Coverage
