Bedford’s Grand Opening Weekend

Bedford, our Houston restaurant client, celebrated its grand opening weekend with a charity dinner on February 28 followed by a VIP friends & family party on March 1. Through ticket sales and auction items at the sold-out dinner, we were able to raise several thousand dollars for Boys & Girls Harbor, a local organization dedicated to providing a safe harbor for child victims of family violence, and the Houston Heights Association, a nonprofit organization formed in 1973 for the purpose of encouraging and promoting the enhancement of the Houston Heights community. The unforgettable dinner event featured a special guest: Bedford chef Robert Gadsby’s good friend, Food Network star and author Jeff Henderson. Gadsby and Henderson worked together to create an elaborate feast in the restaurant’s second level event space and Viking exhibition kitchen for 130 of Houston’s most generous foodies.

On Sunday, a slew of local politicians, socialites, and media sipped champagne and enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres at the Grand Opening VIP event and watched on as Gasby was given a declaration from President Barack Obama by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. It certainly was a night to remember!
