Party on the Bayou
Buffalo Bayou Partnership, a non-profit that is revitalizing and transforming Houston’s Buffalo Bayou, celebrated its 30th anniversary at the “Leafing Through the Years” gala. More than 550 guests attended the majestic evening, chaired by Zane and Brady Carruth and Gayle and Bob Eury.
The setting for the outdoor affair was the grounds of Buffalo Bayou Park. Upon arrival, guests were offered tours of the “Cistern,” the City of Houston’s former underground drinking-water reservoir.
A three-course dinner was provided by A Fare Extraordinaire under a grand tent erected on the Brown Foundation lawn, decorated with oversized confetti balloons and floral tabletop centerpieces.
The gala raised over $580,000 to help fund the efforts of Buffalo Bayou Partnership.
Guests included Buffalo Bayou Partnership board chair Collin Cox and wife Jacquelyn, Sis and Hasty Johnson, Winifred and Carleton Riser, Andrea White, Leslie Elkins and Shannon Sasser, Johnny Steele, Carolyn and Chris Dorros, Murad and Sanober Ajani, Ann and Karl Stern, Courtney and Bas Solleveld, Michael Skelly and Anne Whitlock, Geraldina Wise, Polly and Murry Bowden, Guy Hagstette, Paul Cannings, Roxann and Tim Neumann, Buffalo Bayou Partnership president Anne Olson, Terry and Tommy Smith, Ellyn Wulfe, Jo and Jim Furr, Cullen Geiselman, Eleanor and Dan Gilbane.
