Party like a rock star at The Pavilion Partners Pre-Concert Dinner & Fundraiser prior to the KISS concert Sept. 17. The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion’s Board of Directors and The Pavilion Partners, the official volunteer organization of The Pavilion, invite you to a night of classic rock music, mouth-watering eats and hard-core fun.

The event takes place in the rockin’ new House of Blues Hospitality Tent at The Pavilion. Social hour begins at 5:30 p.m. along with a silent auction. Dinner and the live auction start at 6:30 p.m. The event concludes around 8 p.m. for guests to enjoy the concert. Tickets to this fundraising event are $200 per person and include special reserved seating for the concert, VIP Club passes, hors d’oeuvres provided by Tommy Bahama and a fabulous steak dinner catered by Outback Steakhouse.

“Shout It Out Loud” at the live auction to bid on items such as an autographed Sting guitar, a Houston Astros VIP ticket package, an overnight golf package at Whispering Pines, two exquisite jewelry pieces and a Las Vegas concert package with Lady Gaga tickets.

During the silent auction, you have “Nothin’ to Lose” bidding on unique items and packages created just for this event including a KISS memorabilia package, a Houston Aeros ticket package, a unique guitar-shaped wine rack filled with specialty wines, an overnight Galveston getaway package, a spectacular downtown arts package, great dinner and wine packages, fantastic Woodlands “staycation” packages and more.

Emmy Award-winning reporter and anchor for KTRK 13 Eyewitness News, Art Rascon, serves as the honorary auctioneer for the evening. Rascon previously worked as a correspondent for “The Evening News with Dan Rather.” He has reported from more than 50 countries, five continents and nearly every state in the Union. He has been nominated for 25 Emmys and has won 19.

KISS is regarded as one of the most influential rock and roll bands of all time. KISS holds the honor as one of America’s top gold record champions, recording 37 albums over 36 years and selling more than 100 million albums worldwide. The KISS legacy continues to grow, generation after generation, transcending age, race and creed. The unparalleled devotion and loyalty of the “KISS Army” to the “hottest band in the world” is a striking testament to the band’s unbreakable bond with its fans.

Proceeds from this event benefit the educational outreach programs of The Pavilion, a nonprofit organization. These educational programs include Fine Arts Education Day, Musical Scores, Children’s Festival and Music in Motion.
