After a seven-year hiatus, the Texas Heart Institute gala returned with a glamorous supper club. The Post Oak Hotel ballroom was transformed into an iconic 1940s supper club to celebrate the beginning of the institute’s seventh decade of work to fight cardiovascular disease. Leslie and Eric Wade (pictured) were among the 400 supporters who enjoyed the evening with musical entertainment from Pink Martini. Kelli Kickerillo and Todd Forester served as co-chairs, with Mary and Vincent Kickerillo as honorary chairs. The event raised more than $800,000 for the Texas Heart Institute.
