The Houston Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta will host the 2019 Theta Charity Antiques Show at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Nov. 21-24. Bringing together top exhibitors, designers, collectors, and admirers of fine arts and décor from around the nation, the 2019 Show will be presented by co-chairs Courtney Hill Fertitta, Jennifer Donovan O’Donnell, and Giggy Martin Thanheiser.
This year’s weekend-long event will be the Theta Charity Antiques Show’s grand finale - a celebration of the countless exhibitors, speakers, volunteers, and patrons who have made the Show possible for nearly seven decades. Since its inception in 1952, exhibitors have shared exquisite treasures, attendees have been enlightened by experts in art, design, and antiques, and nearly $8 million has been raised for deserving local charities.
An exciting line-up of speakers will include nationally-renowned design experts Steve and Brooke Giannetti, Alexa Hampton, Thomas Jayne, Charlotte Moss, Thomas O’Brien, and Margot Shaw. Funds raised from the Theta Charity Antiques Show will support the Show’s four permanent beneficiaries: Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens/The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Child Advocates; Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation; and Texas Children’s Cancer & Hematology Center. Additionally, seven deserving local charities have been selected to receive philanthropic support from the 2019 Show: Amazing Place; Bo’s Place; Camp for All; Holly Hall; Nick Finnegan Counseling Center; The Rise School; and The Rose.
