The 2017 Museum of Fine Arts Houston Grand Gala Ball was held on Friday, October 6, 2017, at MFAH’s Caroline Wiess Law Building. Gala chairs Cherie and Jim Flores welcomed more than 475 guests to a stunning building that consisted of a stunning central chandelier, purple orchids, floor-to-ceiling boxwood hedges, a floral wall, and a dramatic central staircase covered in aubergine-colored fabric. MFAH’s Grand Gala Ball 2017 was centered on the glamour and fashion of Oscar de la Renta. This event raised more than $2.3 million to support the Museum’s general operating budget.
