What: American Heart Association Heart Ball kickoff.
Where: River Oaks Country Club.
The 411: Not only were the 2015 gala honorees announced to the cocktail party crowd but gala chairs Brenda and Marc Watts shared news that they were more than half way to their fundraising goal of $1.5 million. With $950,000 already in the bank, the package of enticing auction items (a Houston Rockets road trip for four on a private jet) will surely add to the take. Applause, applause for auction chairs Judy and Russ Labrasca, and Amanda and Jeff Malone.
Who: Cammie and Mark Kennedy, Denise and Win Colbert, Catherine and Dr. John Higgins, Dr. Robert Phillips and Dr. Julia Andrieni, Glenanne and Bill Robinson, Leila Gilbert, Liz Jameson, Nick Dias, Joanne King Herring and Mary Ann McKeithan.
