How does one choose what to bid on between tickets to the 59th Annual Grammys, an Astros First Pitch Experience and Diamond Level tickets or tickets to NYC Fashion Week?

Surrounded by an Alice in Wonderland setting, co-chairs Elva and Truett Akin and Monica and Greg Meeks were grinning like Cheshire cats as $955,000 was raised. Looking for the rabbit hole were Claire and Jack Blanton III, Leslie and Jack Blanton, CMH president Geoff and Shelley Bracken, and Bill and Courtney Toomey.
