Moores School of Music at the University of Houston is renowned for its star musical talent, and so it was fitting that the entertainment for its 29th annual gala benefit was a tribute concert billed as “Barbra & Frank, The Concert That Never Was.” Underwritten by gala chairs Tom Becker and Jim Rosenfeld, the crowd-pleasing Las Vegas entertainment featured Sharon Owens and Sebastian Anzaldo performing hit songs of Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra. Kudos to the Moores School Jazz Orchestra for its flawless performance, and for honoree Sybil Roos for her devoted support of the Moores School.

Such is the fervor of Camp for All supporters that when their “Believe in Magic” gala came tantalizing close to the $1 million mark, an anonymous donor gave $70,000 to put the event over the top! A record crowd of 800 turned out to support the event that raises funds for the more than 10,000 campers who attend the special needs camp each year. Co-chairs Bonnie Kelley Dienna and Susan Martin made the magic happen by enlisting honorees Brad and Joanna Marks and Joe Blount to help generate excitement and support.
