Black Tie International:
Connie Kwan-Wong - Houston Children's Charity -17th Annual Gala

Sherry Self ( HCC’s Admistrative Director)
and Connie Kwan-Wong


A private performance by the legendary Diana Ross at
 Houston Children’s Charity - 17th Annual Gala
Raises Over $1.5 Million

November 2, 2013


The intimate setting of the Imperial Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Houston gave us an opportunity to be up close and personal with
Diana Ross, a true legend, as she sang the soundtrack of our lives.

Featured Performance: Diana Ross, a true legend.
She brought the house down with hit after hit.

Most of Houston’s most notable philanthropists were in attendance. The live auction itself raised close to $600,000 in just 45 minutes.

Had a great time in the Live auction!

 Some of auction items included: Valobra Jewelery,

Models in Franco Valobra/Valobra Jewelry.

 10 days Honolulu vacation, Live Like a High Roller at the Golden Nugget, Superstars on a Super Yacht with Paige &Tilman Fertitta, and the Ultimate Diving Machine (tour the BMW facility in Munich, Germany, Lunch on BMW, Pick out your All NEW 2014 4 series and 2 first class travel certificates to Munich). On top of that, supporters were actively bidding on the big board auction.

Gala Honorees: Leticia & Stephen Trauber, two of Houston’s most outstanding citizens, for their commitment and generous support to the Houston community. They have always been extremely involved in their community. Together they have raised over $30 million for various charitable organization.

The event was spectacular. The décor of the event was stunning
and the food was delicious.

Elegant and romantic table setting.

 Most importantly, Diana Ross was incredible with her brilliant vocals stronger than ever, and her dynamic presence reaching all the way to the back corners of the ballroom. She brought the house down with hit after hit. People danced, swayed and sang along, not wanting it to end. This was definitely one of the most memorial charitable events
of the year!
