Founded in 1952 by Kappa Alpha Theta Houston Alumnae, the Theta Charity Antiques Show is considered by many aficionados to be one of the top three antiques shows in the United States for size and quality—and it’s all for the benefit of Houstonians. The show has not only provided a unique, world-class cultural experience for the city of Houston but also raised more than $6.5 million since its inception to support Houston’s nonprofits in education, the arts, health care and community assistance. Over the years, the Antiques Show has benefited 90 organizations.
