New to the Gala in 2022, come early and get the party started with your guests at our separate ticket pre-event.
Enjoy passed hors-d'oeuvres and sip some drinks while you avoid the registration line.
Our silent auction kicks off the night. After registration, pass an hour with your friends bidding via your cell phone. Passed drinks, light hors d'oeuvres, and good conversation help to pass the time while waiting for the main event to kick off.
On display are all the Christmas Trees, specially decorated to reflect the auction items attached to each of them.
In addition, our big board table displays individual items available for bidding.
During the silent auction portion of the evening, check out our Wine Pull table.
Purchase a bottle of wine generously donated by Trees of Hope supporters during our Fall Wine Event.
Pull a cork out of a bowl, the number on the cork corresponds to a bottle of wine with a value of at least $50. Take a chance and possibly find your next favorite bottle.
From our silent auction enter the beautifully decorated ballroom for a seated dinner and our evening's program. Learn all about the amazing work both Trees of Hope and Star of Hope do for the women and children of Houston working to transition out of homelessness.
Keynote addresses are provided by Trees of Hope Board President, the CEO of Star of Hope and a representative of the Star of Hope community who has been directly impacted by our organization's efforts.
After a seated dinner and our live programming, get ready for an exciting live auction.
Follow along with the fast and furious professional auctioneers. Raise your paddle to win items such as ski vacations, art, and even the sweetest puppy you will ever see.
Following the live auction, everyone gets the chance to participate by raising their paddles to donate money directly to the children's programming at Star of Hope. Every paddle raise makes a difference.
Once the action in the ballroom ends, put on your dance shoes and bust a move onto our dance floor. Always DJd by Houston's best. Show off your best moves surrounded by our decorated Christmas trees.
