Save the date for Fundraising Galas

October 13, 2016

Visualizing how your fundraising event will look, feel, sound and even taste begins by collaborating with your gala host committee. The leadership of this team will have strong feelings for the charity they are representing and for the theme of event they are hosting. They desire for their guests to be engaged and interested in attending, well before the actual event.



For the Texas Center for the Missing 2017 gala, PRISM created a distinctive and rousing club design that will be held at The Astorian, located here in Houston. The proceeds of this event will be benefiting Texas Center for the Missing, Houston’s Amber Alert Provider.

We’ll post more visuals as it gets closer to the event. You can purchase tickets today or even become a sponsor. This group brings hope and healing to the missing and their families through crisis intervention, prevention, and community education.


Experimenting with Red.

du jour

Paradigm of Love

San Jose Clinic

Susan and I hosted a “Shades of Red” party inviting a mix of both artists and non-art types. An experimental event of sorts – our plan was to provide a relaxing atmosphere where people could get to know each other, be creative and just enjoy expressing their point of view on canvas. “What does red mean to you?” was our theme. Through the artistic contributions of many, we created two fabulous paintings, which we dubbed “du jour” and “Paradigm of Love”.

Afterwards our guest Nancy Enright, suggested we donate the paintings to the San José Clinic for its “Art With Heart” Silent Art Auction.

The San José Clinic, is one of the oldest charity clinics in the United States. They have been providing healthcare to the uninsured since 1922 and are the only full-time clinic in the Greater Houston area dedicated exclusively to serving the uninsured.

“This was the first party I attended where I hardly knew anyone and had such a wonderful time”, said party guest Marshall Graham.

We’ll do this again. How about “green”?

Beans for United Way.

June 24, 2009


The folks at Baker Hughes host a fun United Way day event every spring for their employees. They solicit contributions of all types for a silent auction to inspire giving.

We put all Prism’s recent “beans things” in one of those extra large cellophane bags from Palmer Packaging (we love this place*) and did our best to make it look like top florists do. Sometimes, hands-on is the best way to go.

*If you’ve never visited Palmer Packaging on Richmond Avenue, Houston, it’s a designer’s best Houston source for low-cost event supplies. Tell them Prism sent you.
