What: Buffalo Bayou Partnership dinner

Where: The Dunlavy in Buffalo Bayou Park

PC Moment: While guests enjoyed cocktails on the terrace overlooking Buffalo Bayou, some found it hard to believe that since Hurricane Harvey, 60 million pounds of sediment have been removed from the park which is moving back to its pre-storm beauty. Buffalo Bayou Partnership board chair Tom Fish shared that remarkable figure and provided a further update on the clean-up progress.

It’s always a special evening at The Dunlavy with sparkling chandeliers overhead and a sumptuous meal provided by Clark Cooper Concepts on the table. The four-course dinner was presented with wine pairings from Halter Ranch Vineyard. The vineyard’s regional sales manager Macy Bires was on had to introduce the wine pairings.

The evening, chaired by Alison and Chris Porter, raised funds for the ongoing maintenance of the 160-acre linear park that stretches from Shepherd Drive to Sabine Street.

Who: Harris County attorney Vince Ryan, City Council member Brenda Stardig, BBP president Anne Olson, Sis Johnson, Shari Fish, Gaynell Floyd Drexler, Neelo and Sami Ahmad, Lisa and Barron Wallace, Deborah Keyser and James Stafford, Susan and Richard Keeton, Sheila and Beauchamp Heimbinder, Laura Conley, Michelle and Buddy Gray and Morgan and Chris Hollins.
