The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is getting ready to once again host its annual Another Great Night fundraiser, always a memorable evening for the most art loving and fashion forward women of Houston. To kickoff and build anticipation for this signature Houston event, luxury retailer Tootsies hosted an evening of cocktails, jewelry and elegance at its Westheimer store.

CAMH director Hesse McGraw and co-chair Danielle Burns Wilson began the evening by welcoming everyone and thanking them for supporting the museum and Houston’s dynamic contemporary arts scene.

“We’re excited to continue to celebrate an event honoring the Houston women philanthropists in the arts with Another Great Night,” McGraw says. “This year really brings together generations of women leaders.

“We have first time hosts alongside longtime attendees, all with a common passion for what we do at CAMH.”

Tootsies also announced that it would be contributing a portion of its sales from the kickoff evening to the upcoming fundraiser. The gathered guests enjoyed a jewelry trunk show provided by Tootsies, while feasting on delicious bites and champagne cocktails catered by luxury event design firm Monarch Hospitality, which will also cater the Another Great Night celebration.

There also will be a seated dinner with co-chairs Loraine Christ Speier and Danielle Burns Wilson.
