THE SETTING: The Bryan Museum in Galveston was the recent setting of one of the biggest events of the city’s social season. Over 400 of the area’s most notable business leaders, sociables, and philanthropists descended upon the museum for the annual Bryan Museum Gala. This year’s theme, Coastal Cowboys brought the fun in a big way featuring great company, fantastic food, and show-stopping musical performances.

THE VIBE: The “Formal Western Wear” attire brought a mix of cowboy hats and western wear, along with ballgowns and tuxedos to create a uniquely elegant vibe for all who attended. The night started with an exclusive pre-party inside the museum where guests cozied up to the bar to grab the evening’s signature cocktail, The Brush Fire, and mingled with friends old and new. During the pre-party, guests also perused the impressive silent auction while melodies from Libby Koch added an additional level of cowboy elegance.

The festivities then moved to a tent on the Bryan Museum grounds for the main program. As partygoers dined on a multi-course meal, they were treated to words from the event and museum leaders. Next, Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame Member Gerald Sullivan was honored with the annual Bull N Buck award for his history-changing achievement during his career in the American West.

A spirited live auction followed which included luxe items, including a trip to Montana along the Yellowstone River. The night was capped off with dancing as revelers cut a rug to the tunes of Roger Creager.

THE NON-PROFIT: The Bryan Museum Coastal Cowboys Gala, chaired by Kelly Sullivan Georgiades and George Georgiades, raised over $900,000 for the museum. Proceeds raised from the event will go toward education and outreach programs of The Bryan Museum in the Galveston area and around Texas.
