Two hundred and forty-one people joined Emcee and KTRKs Gina Gaston at the Ballroom at Bayou Place on Saturday, November 4th to enjoy fine dining from Masraff’s, a great selection of wine and most importantly, to raise more than $287,000 to support the Making It Better mission to transform lives through literacy. Dr. Scott Van Beck received the Excellence in Education award while Vinson & Elkins took home the Corporate Honoree award for their tremendous support of Making It Better.
