HOUSTON, TEXAS, October 2014 – On Saturday, November 8th Houston philanthropist Theresa Roemer will host the first charity event in the 3,000 sq. ft. closet since the infamous burglary that took place there this past summer, robbing her and her husband, Lamar Roemer, of more than $1 million dollars in personal goods.
Prior to the burglary, Theresa Roemer’s elegant three-story closet, designed after a Neiman Marcus showroom, made national headlines for its opulence and character after the closet was featured on the Neiman Marcus blog and the story went viral. Built and designed for the purpose of holding fundraising events, the unique venue features a champagne bar, seating area, vanity station and fashions from exclusive designers, including Hermès, Fendi, Dior, and Christian Louboutin. While Theresa Roemer has been busy with the launch of her new apparel line, Theresa Roemer True and Real, she remains committed to helping others. The upcoming fundraising event is a private, invitation-only fundraiser that will benefit MoRE Camp Adventure, an oncology camp run by Kids Need More.
“When I heard about the unique events at MoRE Camp Adventure and how it gives these strong and spirited children a week to just be kids, time off from thinking about cancer, I wanted to help,” says Roemer. “This camp is completely run by volunteers and fully funded by donations – that’s no small order. It is my hope that the November fundraiser will be a success and assist many more children in making memories next year at MoRE Camp Adventure.”
ABOUT MoRE CAMP ADVENTURE
In 1990, a group of concerned parents created a camping experience for their children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings. MoRE Camp Adventure now serves the East Coast and Tri-State area. It remains one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and siblings. The programs and activities are designed to reunite siblings and allow parents time for respite.
