Famous Houston Designer Hosts Must-Go Round Top Charity Event
For design-conscious locals, a trip to Round Top is always in order, especially for a good cause. Now, Houstonians can join a beloved Bayou City interior designer for a lively event featuring music, auctions, gourmet food and more, all to benefit Habitat for Horses.
Celebrity designer Ginger Barber will host an elegant fundraiser for Habitat for Horses from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, October 15 at Round Top’s Market Hill (Market Hill, 1542 Texas 237.)
Guests can look forward to shows by Kimberly Dunn and a globally influential dinner and open bar hosted by Market Hill’s Duo by Gino and Nate. Top Drawer Shopping comes courtesy of a private preview of an antique fair featuring Market Hill’s top sellers, as well as a silent auction.
“We encourage you to start your weekend a little earlier and come to Round Top for a wonderful party supporting a cause close to my heart,” Barber told CultureMap. “It will be a gorgeous weekend, so stay the night, shop until you drop, sip cocktails and bid on some amazing auction items.”
Market Hill vendors of choice include Recoop, Antica, Elephant Walk Antiques, Vincent Peach, Paul Meyer Studio, and more. Silent auction items include a weekend getaway to a luxurious Park City, Utah home, meal packages, western clothing, artwork, and more.
Tickets ($ 250) are still available and can be purchased online.
Barber has been a part of Houston design for 40 years, gaining acclaim for its “keep it simple” design pillar, and calm, effortless looks adorned with natural hues, textures and subtle patterns.
She has partnered with the Paul Michael Company to raise awareness of Habitat for Horses (she is vice president of the nonprofit), which promotes and ensures the safety, welfare and health of horses – and establishes links to humans who can benefit emotionally from their involvement with horses, by release.
