Bringing together families in the spirit of the season, event co-chairs Lara Bell and Roseann Rogers invite you to the 6th Annual “Home Sweet Home” Gingerbread Bash honoring CMH President Lance Gilliam and his wife, Jennifer, at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 3, 2011 at the Children’s Museum of Houston (CMH). Filled with laughter, fun and of course … gingerbread, the evening’s events will feature one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses fashioned by dozens of Houston area’s most artistic chefs, including those from Mark’s American Cuisine, Jackson & Co. and Aramark, to name a few. These holiday masterpieces will be auctioned off to
the highest bidders and proceeds will benefit CMH’s educational exhibits and programs.

Enjoy an enchanting evening of live music, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres catered by Carraba’s while the kids take pleasure in special holiday activities, like designing their own gingerbread houses, sipping on Mexican hot chocolate, taking photos with Santa, hanging out with Mr. and Mrs. Frosty, and accessing all of our action-packed exhibits exclusively open for this holiday’s magical event!
