Chocolate, Champagne, and Charity

The Houston Galveston Institute and friends will take over the Groovy Grill during today's Chocolate, Champagne, and Charity fund-raiser. (Never heard of the HGI? They concentrate on advancing psychotherapy.) The highlight of the evening is an auction for dozens of wonderful prizes, including a margarita party for 20, a trip to Playa del Carmen, and enough reward points to get a couple to Europe and back. 7 to 10 p.m. 2619 North Calumet. For information, call 713-526-8390 or visit www.hgispecialevents.com. $45.
Fri., Nov. 6, 7 p.m., 2009
