It was a fundraising weekend at the park! On Saturday, it was elegant black tie, designer dresses and premier food and entertainment for the Gala on the Green presented by H-E-B. The red carpet was rolled out on the Brown Promenade and even the live oaks were adorned with chandeliers for the 700+ guests. On Sunday, Families on the Green presented by Bracewell & Giuliani featured art cars, stage shows by Society for the Performing Arts, catfish fishing, karaoke, ice sculpting by Reverend Butter, a visit with Dr. O from the Children’s Museum, butterflies, snakes and more from the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and more for the whole family. In total these biennial events generated $1.6 million to support the year-around programming and operation of our park. Thank you donors and attendees! Thanks to all the staff and volunteers who executed flawlessly these amazing events.
