The 12th annual Legacy Community Services luncheon took on the air of a family affair on Tuesday when close to 500 sustaining supporters packed The Corinthian. The luncheon turnout was rich with those who have been on board since the inaugural luncheon and with relative newcomers invested in Legacy's mission "to drive healthy change in our community."

"It’s much more than just plopping a clinic down in the middle of a neighborhood.  It’s about being part of the community." 

Past chairs and honorees, long-time board members and fans of 2014 honoree real estate legend Martha Turner mingled over champagne and lighter libations during the reception. Luncheon chairs Claire Cormier Thielke and Isabel David welcomed consistent supporters who included Phoebe Tudor, Monsour Taghdisi, Lucinda Loya, Cyndy Garza Roberts and Melissa Mithoff. (Taghidsi and Loya have already signed on to chair the 2015 luncheon.)

Turner, who has been a Legacy supporter for many years and whose husband, Glenn Bauguss is board treasurer, was introduced by her longtime friend Frank Campisi. The accolades continued as City Councilman David Robinson presented a proclamation declaring it "Martha Turner Day in Houston." It was a great first day of fall all around with the event raising $300,000.

In remarks to the gathering Legacy CEO Katy Caldwell noted of Legacy's mission, "It’s much more than just plopping a clinic down in the middle of a neighborhood.  It’s about being part of the community and working in partnership with them and provide the services they need and want."  

Joining the luncheon group were Sotheby's International Realty president and CEO Kathy Korte in from New York, Legacy board chair Bryan Hlavinka, Legacy development director Chree Boydston, Dessa Turner, Karen and Mike Mayell, Lora Clemmons, Danny David, Sheridan Williams, Ceron, Debra Grierson, Yvonne and Rufus Cormier, Mark Sullivan and Darryl Murchison, who provided the Corinthian decor.
