To Die For!

More than 500 supporters of the Children’s Museum of Houston donned scary-chic gowns, makeup and accessories for the elaborate Día de los Muertos gala. Bergner & Johnson Design adorned the walls, ceilings, tables and more with images of sugar skulls and marigolds, while Jackson & Company served an inspired spread of stuffed jalapenos, spicy steak and Mexican wedding cookies. An exciting live auction and raffle included a nearly $16,000 pair of his-and-hers Rolex watches, courtesy of Deutsch Houston. The night’s total till topped $1 million. Meanwhile, the Ronald McDonald House also raised nearly a mil at its annual Boo Ball, held at the Hilton-Americas. Costume-clad revelers enjoyed Halloween-inspired fare like the Witches Brew dessert. Spooktacular!
