The Theta Charity Antiques Show brings together top exhibitors, designers, collectors, and admirers of fine arts and décor in a beautiful three-day show with proceeds benefiting deserving local charities. The 2019 Theta Charity Antiques Show will be held Nov. 22 – Nov. 24 in Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center, with an evening preview party kicking off the festivities on Nov. 21. Visitors to the Show can browse exquisite treasures—including estate jewelry, antique silver, hand-woven rugs, and period furniture—and learn more about art and antiques from top designers and experts from around the country. All weekend events are included in this year’s all-inclusive general admission ticket as we celebrate the past 67 years with our Grand Finale Show!
Since its founding in 1952, the Theta Charity Antiques Show has given nearly $8 million from the weekend events to cultural, community, educational, and medical causes in Houston. Funds raised from the Theta Charity Antiques Show supports the Show’s four permanent beneficiaries: Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens/The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Child Advocates, Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation, and Texas Children’s Cancer & Hematology Centers. Additionally, seven deserving local charities have been selected to receive philanthropic support from the 2019 Show: Amazing Place, Bo’s Place, Camp for All, Holly Hall, Nick Finnegan Counseling Center, The Rise School, and The Rose.
The Theta Charity Antique Show is run by the Houston Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, with more than 50 committee chairs and 200 volunteers. The 2019 Show is chaired by Courtney Hill Fertitta, Jennifer Donovan O’Donnell, and Giggy Martin Thanheiser.
