A closet, even a supersized one, may seem like an unlikely location for a meeting. For Houston philanthropist Theresa Roemer, however, hosting charity events in a specially built 3,000-square-foot closet is all part of a plan to aid area charities.

On Saturday, Nov. 8, Roemer will host the first charity event her Houston closet since a headline-making burglary last summer that robbed her and her husband, Lamar Roemer, of more than $1 million in personal goods. The invitation-only event will benefit MoRE Camp Adventure, an oncology camp run by Kids Need More.

MoRE Camp Adventure is one of the only camps to serve child cancer patients and their siblings. The programs and activities are designed to reunite siblings and allow parents time for respite.

“When I heard about the unique events at MoRE Camp Adventure and how it gives these strong and spirited children a week to just be kids, time off from thinking about cancer, I wanted to help,” says Roemer. “This camp is completely run by volunteers and fully funded by donations -- that’s no small order. It is my hope that the November fundraiser will be a success and assist many more children in making memories next year at MoRE Camp Adventure.”

Roemer’s three-story closet is patterned after a Neiman Marcus showroom, and was built specifically to hold fundraising events. The unique venue includes a champagne bar, seating area and vanity station, and is stocked with fashions from Hermès, Fendi, Dior and Christian Louboutin. Soon, it also will include Roemer’s new apparel line, Theresa Roemer True and Real.

Bolivar Beach Club & RV Resort is set to open in Crystal Beach on the Texas Gulf Coast as a premier RV resort and entertainment venue. The 150-acre beachfront resort will feature more than 500 RV sites and an amenity package that includes a 5-acre entertainment park with beachside concerts year-round. Throughout the resort, visitors will also have access to luxury concert suites, a turf football field, a food truck park, large resort pool and a fleet of golf cart rentals.

 

As COVID-19 restrictions ease, in-person meetings are making a comeback. 

“After a year of working in virtual environments, businesses of all sizes are finding the need to reconnect face-to-face in meaningful ways,” says Lisa Fasbender, general manager of the 186-acre Margaritaville Lake Resort on Lake Conroe in Conroe. “Our ability to host a meeting that combines serious learning with serious fun makes Margaritaville Lake Resort the ideal setting to collaborate and focus on team building.”

The resort offers:
