What: The Thread Alliance "Once in a Blue Moon" pool party.
Where: The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa.
The 411: The Thread Alliance and The Houstonian joined forces for a pool party on blue moon Friday, in efforts to raise awareness of child abuse prevention. Blue, the official color for the cause, was prevalent throughout the pool scene with blue noodles for swimming, DJ Smurf providing the sounds and blue snow cones, cotton candy and S'mores.
The Thread Alliance reaped the benefits from sale of food and drink from the Arbor Grill. The menu included Blue Moon beer, blue agave margaritas, blue corn chips with guacamole and more.
Thread Alliance founder Sheila Aron was on hand as were Harris County deputies Sam Olivares and Sandra Chavez, who brought along Child Fingerprint/DNA kits and Profile Keepers. Copies of Aron's children's book, I'm Glad I'm Me, which gently focuses on the dangers of child abuse.
Who: Leslie and Dan Hassen, Joyce and Gary Nimitz, Cherrill Farnsworth, Peter Pavluk, Rob Todd, Dinah Lin, Cindy Zatorski, Philip Trumbly, Megan Sutton-Reed and Chris Reed and Kimberly and Peter Buettgen.
