Colorful and Culinary Dress for Success Soiree Raises Half a Mil

Randy and Crystal Wright, Allie and Eric Danziger

THIS WEEKEND, DRESS for Success Houston hosted a sold-out cocktail soiree at its Eastside St. HQ. Chaired by Allie and Eric Danziger and Crystal and Randy Wright, the "Rendezvous" raised a whopping $580,000 to further the group's mission of helping women achieve economic independence through professional development.


It was a tasty to-do, with bites from popular restaurants like Coppa Osteria and Pondicheri, along with A Fare Extraordinaire and new-on-the-scene Night Moves Hospitality. Even the honoree, H-E-B, was foodie-forward.

Emcee Mia Gradney welcomed four Dress for Success clients to share their stories of how the organization has helped them support their families financially and continue to grow as an independent professional.

A successful auction greatly contributed to the evening's total till, featuring items like courtside Rockets tickets and United Airlines vouchers; the raffle for a Diamonds Direct tennis bracelet garnered more than $16,000.

And with remaining two-bedroom homes starting at $895,000, it’s a remarkable value for this increasingly pricey area, where condos can easily climb to several million dollars and more.

Dressed in lavish Alice-in-Wonderland-themed costumes, guests were transported down the rabbit hole as they arrived to Silver Street Studios, which was completely transformed into Lewis Carroll’s fantasy land.
