Bond-themed gala brings support from all over Houston
More than 200 community members spent the evening Jan. 26 at Hotel ZaZa with James Bond during the third annual gala to support and raise funds for Devereux Texas, a treatment facility that treats children suffering from severe forms of abuse and emotional disturbances.
The night stuck to its James Bond theme with a Sean Connery impersonator and the display of an Aston Martin in the ZaZa ballroom. Guests dined on culinary treats from Landrys-exclusive restaurants and hors d'oeuvres from Brenners Steakhouse, Grotto, La Griglia, Pesce, RED Sushi and Hibachi Grill and Willie Gs Seafood and Steaks.
Throughout the evening, guests bid on live and silent auction items to raise funds for the facility.
Misty and Mushahid Khan, gala chairs, and Pattie Dale Tye were recognized for their commitment to Devereux.
Guests watched a video made by a former Devereux client with bipolar disorder who said that without the treatment she received at the facility, she would have ended up in the streets or dead.
Devereux's mission is to make a difference in the lives of others so they can live a life free of mental illness, according to a press release.
Officials with Devereux said they were thankful for the guests who came out for the evening because without them they would not be able to treat the children and young adults who come to the facility year after year.
