AS SPRING began blossoming out all over the area, many celebrated its early arrival at parties and luncheons.
First came the 22nd annual Seabrook Men Who Cook, put on at Lakewood Yacht Club by Seabrook Rotary to benefit its foundation and the Seabrook Police Charities with hundreds joining the fun.
Next was the annual Go Red for Women Luncheon at South Shore Harbour Resort, where several hundred gathered – all dressed in red – to raise $160,000 for the American Heart Association and pick Dr. Safi Madain of Clear Lake Regional Medical Center as their 2016 Heart Throb. Tama Brantley and Darcy Whatley served as co-chairmen of the event.
Still another big event was the Houston Symphony League Bay Area’s Day By the Bay Home Tour and its Pre-Tour Party in Brook Forest chaired by Martha and Ernie McWilliams, as the League continued its 40th anniversary celebration.
And, that’s just a few of the events that kept us on the run!
