Billionaire Philanthropists Make This Houston Home a Vital Success

Modest Fundraiser Grows Into a $950,000 Success

BY // 04.03.19

What: Nora’s Home eighth annual “We Are Family” gala

Where: The Post Oak Hotel

PC Moment: In less than a decade, this fundraiser has grown from a modest get-together to a whopping success with $950,000 in the bank for the nonprofit that provides affordable, temporary housing for organ transplant patients. The value of Nora’s Home was poignantly realized through the story of gala chairs Vicki and Nick Massad and their daughter, Taylor. The family shared their transplant experience in which Taylor donated a kidney to her father.

The evening honored billionaire philanthropists Carole and Jim Looke and Paula and Rusty Walter  for their long-term support of Nora’s Home, which ensures that transplant patients have a comfortable place to call home during their recovery. Carole and Rusty are twins, scions of Walter Oil & Gas.

On this totally disco-inspired night, a number of guests stepped out in “I Love the Night Life” style.

PC Seen: Jo Lynn and Gregg Falgout, Drs. Lillian and Osama Gaber, Taylor and Ethan Tritt, Chelsea and Christian McDermott, Aaron Schwartz, Caroline Kuntz, Maria and John Zerr, Irene and Roger Woolsey, Bill King, Tasha and Blake Hamilton, Vicki and Carl Baucum, Andrew Benak, and Allison and Jim Tennant.
