'Havana Nights' Bash Benefiting Be An Angel Brings Drinks, Dancing and Tropical Vibes

Anna & John Reger

MORE THAN 400 guests poured into The Revaire, dressed in tropical prints and flowing dresses, for Be An Angel's annual gala, which this year adopted a Havana Nights theme.


The evening featured a wine and whiskey pull with more than 200 bottles that were scooped up in the first 30 minutes! Later, an auction with items like getaways to a French villa and Belize contributed to the evening's total till of $600,000.

The Cuarteto Caliente Latin Band performed a spicy ballroom dance, and then Be An Angel's Marti Boone presented the 2023 Angel Awards. Recipients included the late Raymond Solcher and Apollo 7 Astronaut Walter Cunningham.

A selection of McGee's 'Tarot Cards'

AN EXHIBITION BY Houston-based artist David McGee is always a cause for celebration. A master of portraiture, modernism and abstraction, with works in the permanent collections of museums across the country, McGee, like many artists, clung to his practice like a lifeline throughout the worst months of the pandemic and the political upheaval that still plagues the country today. His new and highly anticipated show at Inman Gallery, The Tarot Cards and The Gloria Paintings (Sept. 16 – Nov. 1), is infused with that resilience, and is his most politically charged, and deeply personal exhibition to date.
