Fifteenth Annual Benefit Gala: A Review

What an incredible night we had at the Czech Center Museum Houston’s Fifteenth Annual Gala  Saturday, August 1.  This beautiful event took weeks of diligent work by the CCMH staff and volunteers, CEO and Chairman Effie Rosene, Vice President and Secretary Bill Rosene and the incredible Gala Chairs: Nina and Ray Vitek, Barbara and Henry Hermis, Paul and Judy Pasemann, Cliff and Barbara Malek, Father Paul Chovanec, Sally Miller, and Wesley Pustejovsky.

A more eloquent account of this fundraising event is forthcoming along with a second chance at some of our fabulous auction items.  In the meantime, please enjoy a pictorial summary of the Fifteenth Annual Benefit Gala below.
