What: Nora's Home "Spotlight on Nora's Home" gala.

Where: Hilton Americas-Houston.

The 411: Applause, applause for chairs Lisa and Rudy Beeching and Anita and Tom Richards for orchestrating the evening that enjoyed non-stop entertainment that began with Sierra Beeching dancing her heart out for guests during the cocktail hour.

The Houston Rockets Robert Boudwin aka "Clutch" emceed the culinary presentation while The Three Waiters surprised during dinner with their tenor high notes. And let's not forget the stirring sounds of the Willowridge High School marching band.

Judy and Ron Girotto and Dianne and Ellis Tudzin were honored on the evening that raised $500,000 for the Adopt-A-Family program, which helps offset the financial strain put on transplant patients and their families.

Who: Drs. Lillian and Osmar Gaber, Egyptian Consul General Khaled Rady, Brigitte and Bashar Kalai, Loretta and Dr. Alfred Maksoud, Shauna and Greg Hagemann, J’Anne and Jeff Rawson, Jamie and Kevin Myer, Barbara Gretzer and Jane and Jim Brann.
