What: Moores School of Music 30 Moores Gala
Where: The Four Seasons hotel downtown
PC Moment: Chairs Jackie and Malcolm Mazow toasted the 30th anniversary of the University of Houston’s prestigious music school with a glamorous black-tie evening. Arts benefactor supreme Marie Bosarge was honored for her lifetime of philanthropy. The evening orchestrated one of the highest totals in recent years for the school’s coffers — to the tune of more than $190,000, earmarked for scholarships.
Beth Madison stepped up with a generous matching pledge of $25,000, while Moores grad John Grimmett delivered the impassioned keynote. A last minute donation of 30 dining gift cards was a nice finishing touch from Landry’s CEO Tilman Fertitta (University of Houston System Board of Regents chair).
