We celebrated our 29th Twilight Gala on Friday, May 3rd, 2024. Despite threatening weather, it turned out to be a beautiful May evening, and we dazzled our guests with twinkle lights, human butterflies, mermaids, and more! Guests toasted the Texas coast with Mermaid Tear™ oysters, delicious catering the Houston Catering Concepts, and danced the night away to The Next Level Band. Marybeth Flaherty and Meredith Flaherty-Symonds lead an exciting silent auction featuring many generous local businesses. The event raised over $40,000 to benefit our operations. We are so appreciative of our sponsors, underwriters, and guests!
