2023 Gala: Wish Upon a StarYearly EventsBlog
Although 2021 has felt just like a continuation of 2020, this didn’t keep us from feeling pepped to celebrate 10 years of Galas! Unable to gather at the Post Oak Hotel as in years previous, Nora’s Home had a unique celebratory tour of the home for supporters to enjoy in the comfort of their own home! Gala Honorees included all Gala Chairs from previous years and the attire was themed to your own alma mater attire.
Hosted by the spectacular Lisa Malosky, this virtual “Pep Rally” was kicked off by the Strake Jesuit drumline and St. Agnes Cheer squad, followed by Gala Honorees who took the audience from room to room of the home, sharing the meaningful connection they had with the space and mission of Nora’s Home. Attendees at home enjoyed a lovely steak dinner and commemorative yearbook. Nora’s Home guests joined the celebration as well and enjoyed their steak dinner together at the Home while watching the live streamed event.
Due to generous support of our Nora’s Home family, we were able to raise $391,976 towards the Adopt-A-Family program, ensuring that no guest is ever turned away due to the inability to pay. We are humbled by the generosity of our donors and so grateful for their meaningful gifts that have helped us bridge the gaps in our financial costs brought on by the pandemic and our limited operating abilities.
