Paige Fertitta, Deanna Barton, Jeff and Rachel BagwellBradley and Joanna Marks and Hannah and Cal McNair were among the more than 700 supporters of Houston Children’s Charity at the 25th annual gala that raised a record-breaking $3,625,000. The rock ’n roll themed evening featured the award-winning duo Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo. Houston Children’s Charity chief executive officer Laura Ward and gala chair Sheridan Williams led the fundraising efforts to provide beds, vans, school supplies, clothing, and holiday gifts for Houston’s underserved, abused, and disabled children. The evening began with master of ceremonies Houston Astros sports announcer Todd Kalas, followed by an invocation from Reverend Mary Gracely of One Spirit Interfaith Community. After a very successful live auction and fundraising activities, the crowd rocked the night away as Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo took the stage to perform their top hits, including “Heartbreaker”, “We Belong”, “Shadows of the Night”, and “Hit Me with Your Best Shot”.
