Museum Supporters Live La Vida Loca at Fab Four Seasons Gala

NEVER BEFORE HAS the importance of experienced, compassionate healthcare professionals been so pronounced as the last three years. Houston is lucky to be home to some of the world's best, several of whom were honored at The John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science's annual fundraiser.

Chaired by David and Sara Cordúa, the Viva la Vida gala was held at the Four Seasons Hotel, which recently unveiled its spectacularly renovated ballroom. The Dia de los Muertos-themed night, which included a Cordúa-approved menu and Latin tunes courtesy of Divisi Strings, raised nearly $300K to support the museum's education and community programming.

An exciting live auction touted items like a Colorado vacation and a private party for 50 at the Health Museum — but nothing was quite as exciting as cheering on the Astros while simultaneously dancing to Divisi String's lively Collide band.
