2024 Gala: World of Wonder

Gala Reels in $820K for Transplant Patients

More than 500 supporters of Nora’s Home gathered on April 27 to celebrate a World of Wonder benefitting Nora’s Home held at The Revaire. Friends and supporters came together to celebrate our mission of serving organ transplant patients and their families.

Gala chairs, Shazma and Arshad Matin, ushered in an international flair for an awe-inspiring night featuring belly dancers, an aerialist, a surprise performance from International Voices Houston and an interactive dance performance by Rhythm India.

Honorees from the team at Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) Transplant Services were spotlighted for their exceptional patient care and teamwork. The crowd also heard a powerful testimonial from a Nora’s Home guest and TCH patient, 11-year old Parson and her Mom, Jennifer, interviewed by event emcee, Lisa Malosky.

Parson is the recipient of a double lung transplant when she was merely 11 months old. The medical team at TCH taking on Parson’s case included the celebrated and recently retired pediatric pulmonologist, Dr. George Mallory, who was recognized in the crowd with a standing ovation and applause from colleagues and friends.

Supporters dined on a delicious meal prepared by A Fare Extraordinaire, admired décor by Flora & Eventi and finished the night on the dance floor with music by DJ Senega. In total, Nora’s Home supporters raised $820,000 to help patients and their families.

Nora’s Home wants to THANK our chairs, host committee, underwriters, volunteers and staff who made this year’s event one for the books!

See all the ways you can get involved and support Nora’s Home.
