Christmas Celebration of Cheer, Charity and a Hot County Band
December 10, 2011

Every year, the Lanier Law Firm hosts a holiday bash for family, friends and associates. Houston Power Attorney Mark Lanier and his wife, Becky, combine holiday cheer with charitable giving to make this celebration different from the average office party.

The anticipation begins when the highly coveted and always creative invitation arrives in the mail. This year, the invitation was designed like a Rubik’s Cube.

Invitees were thrilled to learn that the country music band,  Rascal Flatts,  would perform at the end of the evening. In the past, the Lanier’s have brought in performers like Jon Bon Jovi, George Strait and Stevie Wonder.

The Laniers encouraged their party guests to donate to Guatemala SANA, a special charity benefiting the children of Guatemala. Mrs. Lanier is on the board and the program provides education and healthcare services.

The Laniers live on sprawling property in Northwest Harris County. I arrived too late to walk around the entire event, but it was clear that the party offered something for everyone: play areas for the kids, food stations and a huge tent for the concert, which was important this year because of the cold and rainy weather.

Rascal Flatts entertained the audience, which included Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst with a mix of country and rock and roll music.
