PC Moment: “OMG, shoes!” So said more than 400 supporters of the National Kidney Foundation Serving Texas, who clicked their heels at the opportunity to celebrate a decade of the annual style show and luncheon. This year’s theme, “Pump-A-Licious,” was a loving tribute to the stiletto, with a runway show produced by Lenny Matuszewski and Tamara Bonar, starring looks from Elizabeth Anthony and Joseph shoes. The Ensemble Theatre opened the afternoon with a song-and-dance routine.
