Champagne, Jewels and Plenty of Pride: The Ballet Takes Over a Sparkling New StoreBY Shelby Hodge // 02.09.17
What: Houston Ballet Ball Underwriters Party
Where: Tenenbaum Jewelers
PC Moment: It was difficult to tell what stirred more buzz at the champagne-infused cocktail gathering — the truly dazzling display of jewels, talk of the upcoming gala or pride in the Super Bowl, which was held only two days earlier. Tenenbaum’s Tony Bradfield and Kevin Black welcomed guests to their spanking new emporium to celebrate the gala and to reveal the numerous jewelry items that they are providing for auction at the February 25 soiree. Key among the visitors were gala chairs Ann and Albert Chao, honoree Anne Trammell and Diane Lokey Farb, who is underwriting the band. City Kitchen provided yummy fuel for the party crowd.
Who: Houston Ballet’s Jim Nelson, Phoebe Tudor, Diane and Phil Bazelide, Elise and Russell Joseph, Princess Maria Anna and Prince Piotr Galitzine, Shawn Stephens and Jim Jordan, Leigh and Reggie Smith and Courtney and Bill Toomey.
