There are Black Friday sales and Christmas Eve Sales and post-Christmas sales but none can beat the Sale Houston, sponsored by Houston Tri-Delta Philanthropies Inc. with proceeds directed to MD Anderson Cancer Center. With eight January sales in the history books, the event has raised more than $1.6 million overall.
Joining the delightful fray this January will be à bientôt, J. Landa Jewelry, Bumble and Brim, Frock Shop, Christy Lynn Collection, Pomp & Circumstance and others. Discounts start at 20 percent and go as high as 75 percent, making this a true bargain shoppers paradise. More than 50 Houston stores are slated to participate and be part of the Sale.
The 2023 Sale takes over the Bayou City Event Center on Knight Road, south of NRG stadium, next Friday, January 6, and Saturday, January 7, with its hours running from 10 am to 4 pm. The shopping extravaganza actually begins with a Cocktails & Couture preview party on Thursday, January 5 with tickets priced at $250. Admission for either Friday or Saturday costs $30 while a two-day pass is priced at $50.
Proceeds from the upcoming sale are earmarked to fund pediatric cancer research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital.
“Each one of us has all been affected by cancer whether it personally or a loved one,” says Bridget Melancon Hoffman, the SALE’s marketing chair. “We are so lucky to live in a city where world-class hospitals like MD Anderson are leading innovative and life-saving research.
“Our alumnae are committed to helping doctors find a cure to pediatric cancer.”
