Rapping up Haute for Hope

Butch Alsandor/Deborah Ducan – Channel 11 (STP Images)The spot lights are out, the stage is down, and the audience has gone the way of all audiences, when the show is over.  It will be a year before the Star of Hope Haute for Hope luncheon and fashion show comes around again.  But, hey, it’s only time, and time flies when you’re having fun, right?  Well, guess what?  We’ve had a ball over the past 13 years since the show first opened, and we have the wonderful memories of Houston’s top news and broadcast personalities strutting their stuff on the catwalk, to bring the gift of hope to thousands of homeless children.

Shern-Min Chow – Channel 11 (STP Images)So we do not lament the end of this year’s show.  We celebrate what’s been accomplished and look forward to next year, when we will do it all over again, for the children, absolutely, and for the fun that comes in the doing.

We are grateful to Dana Tyson, SUNNY 99.1 Morning Show host and Jose’ Grinan, Morning News Anchor for Fox 26.  They were the dynamic duo at the mikes, as their media colleagues took over the runway to the music of famed vibraharpist, Harry Sheppard.

Art Rascon/Gina Gaston – Chanel 13 (STP Images)Many thanks to all of you who supported the show, whether you bought a table or a seat, contributed auction items or ambiance, as did A Touch of Elegance and River Oaks Flower House.  We are forever thankful.  TribeDesign, you make the most gorgeous invitations.

To Todd Ramos, who always does a bang-up job producing the show, muchas gracias amigo!  To the media models who make Haute for Hope hot, we are grateful beyond words.  And what’s a fashion show without fashions?  Thank you BB1 Classic, Elizabeth Anthony Esther Wolf, and Lucho.  Also, a special shout out to Solution for volunteering every year to put the final, beautifying touches on our models. Speaking of volunteers—Star of Hope staff, you are AWESOME! Thank you. See you next year.
