On Tuesday, February 7, 2017 Houston Ballet Trustees and Ballet Ball supporters joined Kevin Black and Tony Bradfield of Tenenbaum Jewelers, preferred jewelry partner of Houston Ballet for a sneak preview of the sparklers that will be included in the silent auction at the Ballet Ball on Saturday, February 25 at Wortham Theater Center's Grand Foyer. Guests were greeted by Ball Chairmen Anne and Albert Chao as they marveled at a collection of jewelry specially selected by Mrs. Chao herself. David Shelton Gallery, art partner of the Ballet Ball, provided a preview of several pieces that will be available exclusively to Ball attendees during the silent auction.
