PC Moment: There were many moments at this picture perfect event on a Sunday afternoon when moms and their children, mostly daughters, dressed to the nines for the family-focused event. Visuals were colorful with the amazing hats, the fancy frocks and fascinators. And the pink and floral-inspired decor. While moms engaged at the “Build your own bubbly bar,” the youngsters were entertained with face painting, craft tables, jumbo-sized games, a teddy bear workshop and more  — a cornucopia of entertainments produced by Swift + Company.

The chic Valentine’s themed affair celebrated the extraordinary accomplishments of the Children’s Heart Institute team.

Of course, this was not a mere tea just for fun. It was an informational afternoon with words from Amalia Stanton, Memorial Hermann’s senior vice president and chief of strategic communications and marketing; Marissa Kiefer, senior vice president Memorial Hermann and CEO of Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital; and Anne Neeson, executive vice president Memorial Hermann and CEO of Memorial Hermann Foundation. Add a video presentation on a pediatric heart transplant patient.

Perhaps most salient of the presentations was that of Dr. Jorge Salazar, executive co-director Children’s Heart Institute at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and professor & chief, pediatric and congenital heart surgery, McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston. His remarks on the Children’s Heart Institute team and the young patient’s heart transplant held the ladies at rapt attention. That team is pioneering innovative solutions that offer kids with even the most complex heart problems the greatest opportunity to survive and thrive.
