What: The College of Biblical Studies Rising Star dinner.
Where: The Royal Sonesta Hotel.
The 411: NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson shared his story of deep Christian faith and tales from the basketball court with more than 300 guests. Lisa Malosky led the interview with the 7-foot retired athlete, who is known as "the Admiral" in reference to his attending the Naval Academy and serving in the Navy. Interesting aside: Robinson shared the fact that he grew three inches each year for five years beginning in his junior year in high school and continuing through college.
The fundraiser was chaired by Linda and Gene Dewhurst and Patti and Tom Owens. College of Biblical Studies president William Blocker commented on the school's role in impacting lives and helping not only individuals but also entire communities. Contributions from the event will support biblically based education in Houston’s minority areas.
Who: The faithful included Patti and Jim Fox, Audrey and David Gow, Suzan and Joe Parle and Lyn and John Boal.
