Thanks for Being So Pretty in Pink!

November 8, 2019

It was a special night full of sequins, ruffles, and Aqua Net at Houston's Hotel Derek to support Houston-area women fighting to become cancer-free. Our 12th anniversary gala, "An 80's Prom Night", included heart-warming speeches, highlights of our latest achievements, live and silent auctions, and a fantastic performance by Molly & the Ringwalds. The best part of the night is the fact that together we raised over $260,000 to keep Pink Door supporting survivors!
