This past Friday night, the Sunshine Kids held their annual Gala and fundraiser at the Hilton Americas in downtown Houston and STP Images covered it. Executive Director G.W. Bailey was on hand to oversee the festivities. Craig Biggio, long synonymous with the Sunshine Kids, took the podium and addressed the influential assembly. Craig even assisted with the auction at times. The event brought out a few national and local celebrities and bidding was entertaining. Hundreds of special items were donated for the silent auction and the bidding pens didn’t get much rest.
The Houston Area Audi Dealers Group was Platinum Sponsor of the evening and a handful of beautiful Audis graced the 4th floor. The highlight of the evening for three of the attendees was the giveaway of a brand new Audi to one lucky raffle ticket purchaser. Three finalists were selected before the evening began and each of them drew a key from a velvet drawstring bag. Each finalist took their turn with a key, but it was the third key that was the charm! What a way to end the evening – a new car heading home with one of the supporters of the Sunshine Kids.
The band, Fried Ice Cream, took to the stage shortly after the car was awarded. The dance floor filled and the party gound on for quite a while. It was a fantastic event. Much needed funds were raised, additional awareness was placed on these wonderful children that this charity helps each day, everyone had a blast, and many attendees went home with some EXCEPTIONAL goodies. Can’t wait for next year.
