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.

THE ROTHKO CHAPEL held its Inspirit fundraiser — a celebration of the power of art and activism — at the industrial-chic Astorian. The evening featured cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an onstage conversation with actor Cheech Marin, one of the world’s foremost collectors of Chicano art; 2023 Art League of Houston Texas Artist of the Year Vincent Valdez; and legendary civil rights advocate Dolores Huerta, who co-founded the United Farm Workers of America with César Chávez. (She’s 93, by the way!)
