What: The Health Museum "Hearts of Gold Gala."
Where: Hotel ZaZa.
The 411: Margaret Alkek Williams was honored on the evening that saw 400 guests raise a record $386,500 for the museum. Taking bows for their work as chairs was a quartet of doctors from the Texas Medical Center — Dr. Marc Boom, Dr. Julie Boom, Dr. Paul Klotman and Dr. Mary Klotman. Even the honorary chair duo — Gina and Dr. Devinder Bhatia — has medicine in its blood.
"Funds raised by the gala," noted museum president and CEO Melanie Johnson, "will help to transform The Health Museum into a state of the art 21st century learning space."
