For Marla, blending fashion with philanthropy is a winning combination. As a member of the esteemed Houston Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary — home of Houston’s acclaimed Chic Boutique, the Houston Symphony League, and the National Charity League — Marla has successfully married her love of fashion and volunteerism. Marla has chaired various fashionable fundraisers, enjoys sharing her expertise through speaking engagements, and occasionally walks the runway for a worthy cause. Lending her talents to the vibrant philanthropic world in Houston is the perfect fit for a fashion girl who enjoys giving back to her beloved Houston.
