Sponsor the 2018 Pier & Beam Fall Party

Pier & Beam, one of Houston’s fastest growing young professional groups, is holding its annual Fall Party membership and fundraising event on Thursday, November 15, at the historic Eldorado Ballroom in the Third Ward. We’re hoping you will join us as a sponsor for this important event.

Funds raised at the Fall Party will benefit Pier & Beam, an initiative of Preservation Houston. Preservation Houston is Houston’s only citywide nonprofit historic preservation education and advocacy organization; Pier & Beam is a group of next-generation members who share a passion for Houston’s architecture, art, history and culture.

Pier & Beam initiatives are designed to inform and educate the community about the importance of Houston’s history, architecture and built environment — for example, we honor a significant new building each year with our Future Landmark Award, and our Community Spotlight program helps members learn about development and preservation in emerging neighborhoods. We also provide volunteer support to neighborhood education programs, including the Good Brick Tour of outstanding historic restoration projects that is produced by Preservation Houston each year.

We would love for you to be a part of our annual event.

About the 2018 Fall Party

  • When: 7-10 p.m. Thursday, November 15, 2018
  • Where: Eldorado Ballroom, 2310 Elgin Avenue
  • Chairs: Jae Boggess and Chris Castillo; Ali & Frank Donnelly; Emily & Clayton Forswall

The Fall Party is Pier & Beam's largest membership and fundraising event. Each Fall Party is held in a distinctive historic location — this year, we're lucky enough to bring the event to the Eldorado Ballroom, a storied 1939 venue that is extremely significant in the Third Ward and in Houston's musical history.

During the party, we celebrate Pier & Beam's birthday (this year is our fifth!) and present the Future Landmark Award, which honors an outstanding recent project that is making a significant contribution to Houston's urban landscape. Proceeds from the Fall Party benefit Pier & Beam and Preservation Houston.
