In honor of the League’s beautiful relationships with the Houston community and among their members, the Junior League of Houston invited guests to celebrate at the annual Opening Style Show, fittingly themed Style En Pointe: Beauty in Motion. In light of the damage Hurricane Harvey left behind in Houston, the League showcased the beauty of the massive outpouring of support, labor and love in the community. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket were donated to the Junior League of Houston’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will be distributed to organizations in their Community Program.
With two show time options, the League hoped to unite guests in an effort to make an impact while also providing a little levity and fellowship in the wake of such devastation. Guests enjoyed a glamorous fall fashion preview presented by TOOTSIES’ Creative Director Fady Armanious, a delicious meal courtesy of the Junior League Tea Room and full bar service. One lucky lunch attendee received two tickets to Houston Ballet’s The Nutcracker, and one dinner attendee received two tickets to the League’s 70th Annual Charity Ball, a longstanding tradition and a source of funding for the Junior League’s community outreach and volunteer initiatives. Guests also had the chance to participate in a donation drive for toiletry and beauty items that ran through October 5, and was distributed to women affected in the League’s community agencies such as Houston Area Women’s Center, Star of Hope and more.
