This Houston Wine Tasting Extravaganza Was A Woman – See The Last Woman Standing In A Spirited Prize Fight

NOTow this was a creative way to raise money for a non-profit organization – a game of Heads or Tails. By the end of the match, over $9,000 had been captured during this portion of Dress For Success Houston’s wine tasting fundraiser dubbed the PowHER hour. Over 200 DFS Corporate Guild members and friends gathered in the Grand Ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel for the event hosted by the GM Hotel Tom Segesta and Total Wine & More.

The prize stash added to the guests’ enthusiasm for the no-nonsense competition. The last woman standing was Courtney Harmon who won a styling shoot with the beloved Houston jeweler Jay Landa and a $1,000 gift card. Landa and Dress For Success Houston President Lauren Levicki Courville led the fiery game. Other coveted prizes included a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston and dinner for two at Toro Toro.
