The Children’s Museum Boogies Into a Record-Breaking Night at Studio 54

ANDY WARHOL AND Liza Minnelli — well, convincing impersonators anyway — welcomed 600 guests dressed in disco-glam looks to The Children’s Museum’s annual gala. Bergner and Johnson Design transformed The Corinthian into Studio 54 for a night of dancing, bellbottoms, boas and raising $1.1 million for the museum’s outreach services.


Jackson & Company catered the multi-course dinner and, for dessert, served a mousse incased in chocolate made to look like a bright red pair of lips. An exciting live auction featured two rescued puppies which sold for $20,000 each, a VIP Houston sports package and jewelry from Zadok Jewelers.

After dinner, the infamous moon from Studio 54 dropped down from the stage and the glittering dancefloor opened to the beats of Drywater Band. Partygoers, many in platform shoes, boogied to 70’s hits and at midnight trays of cheeseburgers and french fries were brought out to the crowd.

Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.
