Friends of The Stehlin Foundation looked to the silver screen for
inspiration when conceiving its 32nd annual gala. Themed "Celebrating
Hollywood at the Movies," the soirée drew more than 600 Tinseltown
revelers to the Westin Galleria Houston, where $568,000 was raised to
support the foundation¹s cancer crusade. The star-studded evening honored
handbag queen Elaine Turner and spotlighted Kenny Loggins, who performed
his greatest hits from films Footloose to Top Gun. Post-dinner and
auction, the band Skyrocket kept guests dancing into the wee hours.

and Gonzalo Villegas.
