FOR THE FIRST time, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston hosted a seasonal fashion show and fundraiser at Tootsies — and it was a holiday hit!


Nearly 150 stylish guests hit the high-end boutique for festive fashion inspo, DJ tunes, a photo booth, pics with Santa, and makeup artistry by Trish McEvoy cosmetics. Creative cocktails courtesy of Bosscat Kitchen and Libations — plus plenty of wine — warmed up the crowd from the inside out, and BGCGH "Junior Youth of the Year" Brielle gave remarks about how the organization has transformed her life.

In addition to ticket sales and a portion of proceeds from Tootsies purchases, the nonprofit benefited from the sale of raffle tickets for three different prize bundles.

‘Culture of Service and Accountability’ Supports Mission of Orion EMS

Gerard O’Brien, President/CEO & Founder, and Sumi Patel, Vice President

HOW DID YOU get where you are today? The EMS industry, quite literally, never stops. Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS, the Houston-based nonprofit founded by Gracie Cavnar, has become known for its annual Delicious Alchemy banquet dinner. This year, the feast was a more intimate gathering at Hope Farms, hosted on a crisp fall evening instead of the usual late-spring date. But what didn’t change: The tradition of serving course after course of delectable treats, prepared by some of Houston’s best chefs, often utilizing produce from the farm.
