Each year Houston Ballet hosts a black-tie gala to raise $500,000 for Houston Ballet Foundation’s mission and its programs. The event, which is held in February in the spectacular grand foyer of Wortham Theater Center, attracts many of the city’s elite, and has become one of the most prestigious events of Texas’ social season.

Mission: To inspire a lasting love and appreciation for dance through artistic excellence, exhilarating performances, innovative choreography and superb educational programs.
