Who wouldn't be in favor of creating attractive streetscapes, which aid in Houston's ascension as a world class city? Close to 350 guests, the current mayor and three mayoral candidates expressed their support at the annual Scenic Houston dinner.

Mayor Annise Parker joined the throng at Houston Country Club in saluting Transwestern founder Robert Duncan, recipient of the Scenic Visionary Award. He was honored for his support of Houston Scenic's concept that "visual appearance of streetscapes and public spaces strengthens Houston’s image as a gateway city, a first-class, welcoming destination . . ."

The dinner, chaired by Jan Sparks and Michael Snodgrass, raised $341,100 for Scenic Houston's streetscape enhancement initiatives. Scenic Houston president Ann Culver and board chair Harry Masterson applauded the fundraising effort.

Mayoral candidates displaying their support of the initiative were Chris Bell, Steve Costello and Bill King.

Also joining the dinner were Maylynn and Andy Icken, Mo and Ric Campo, Leslie and Shannon Sasser, Lorraine and Ed Wulfe, Catherine and Paul Chapman, Sally Sargent, Mario Diaz, State Rep. Sarah Davis and City Councilmen Jerry Davis, David Robinson, Dave Martin and Robert Gallegos.
