VIP

Before anyone set foot at Topgolf in Houston for the fundraiser, top sponsors were treated to a VIP reception at Musket and Trillium's new office in Houston. Attendees got an up-close look at the space that opened late last year featuring state-of-the-art decor and original artwork by renowned artist Yuri Elvin. Attendees were also treated to dinner, cocktails and additional networking opportunities.

FOR THE KIDS

To remind everyone the dollars raised through DFAC is all for the kids, participants had the opportunity to tour a brand-new part of Texas Children's before it opened to the public. The hospital's new Legacy Tower boasts 640,000-square-feet of space which houses new and expanded operating rooms, a new pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) spanning four floors, and a transitional PICU. Attendees saw part of the new facility as crews put the finishing touches on, including hanging pictures and finishing kid-friendly murals. The added space gives Texas Children's the ability to provide the best care for more kids.
