Gala on the Green®
February 6, 2016
The biennial Gala on the Green® returned Saturday, February 6, 2016 for a spectacular evening among the dazzling glow of Field of Light by internationally-acclaimed artist Bruce Munro and set against the shadow of Houston's skyline. All proceeds benefited the Discovery Green Conservancy and the more than 600 free events that take place at the park every year.
Under the direction of gala co-chairs Ileana and Michael Treviño and Randa Duncan Williams and with the help of presenting sponsor H-E-B, the conservancy's biggest fundraiser welcomed hundreds of guests to the elegant black-tie soiree.
The gala will honored Anne Duncan and John Nau for their leadership in guiding Discovery Green® over the past seven years.
As is tradition, the gala was held beneath a magnificent tent primped to perfection by A Memorable Event on the Jones Lawn with a red carpet entry lining the allée of historic oak trees. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception along the Brown Promenade and HESS Deck before moving inside for a seated dinner catered by Tony's and live entertainment by Divisi Strings and Professor D. KPRC Channel 2's Dominique Sachse joins as the event emcee.
Tables started at $5,000. Click here to download our Gala on the Green 2016 sponsorship brochure.
