Glam for GAN Gala
Last Saturday, about 150 people gathered to “go glam” for GAN (Giant Axonal Neuropathy). The gala, which took place at the 2727 Kirby high-rise apartments, was a huge success with over $100,000 raised for a cure for this fatal disease. Guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and libations while taking in views of the Houston night sky. Proceeds went to Hannah’s Hope Fund.
Highlights of the evening included a lively, live auction and a “Heads or Tails” game, where the winner took home an iWatch. Silent auction winners bid on items ranging from tickets and signed sports memorabilia from the Texans to entries into local triathlons and several kids camps.
Bellaire residents Justin Clark, age 14, and Lexi Clark, age 10, both have GAN; only 60-70 kids in the world have this rare, genetic condition. Over the last two years, the Clark family has been working to raise money for a clinical trial to cure GAN. Read this story from last year on the Clark family and learn more here.
