THE FABULOUSLY FESTIVE Post Oak Hotel was the site of The Arts of Healing Foundation’s annual physician art show and dinner, where 500 guests — including doctors, art aficionados and some special kiddos — gathered for a glamorous holiday fundraiser.


The nonprofit, which champions the “therapeutic and transformative potential of art,” announced its new Camp Heart of the Arts, a three-day immersion camp with activities ranging from painting to music sessions for pediatric patients.

"Camp Heart of the Arts represents our commitment to inclusivity and the healing power of art. It's more than a camp; it's a nexus of creativity, resilience and joy," emphasized Dr. Isaac Raijman, co-founder of The Arts of Healing.

The evening, which raised $250K for the organization, included an auction of beautiful artwork created by children and their physician mentors, and a rousing performance by Dry Water Band that had the black-tie-clad galagoers partying into the wee hours of the morning.
