'TIS THE SEASON for Houston to collectively move to Colorado — at least until school starts back up. A pair of parties hosted by Memorial Hermann Foundation took place in idyllic Aspen, with a record number of guests enjoying the crisp mountain air, breathtaking views, and delicious blood-orange margaritas in the name of charity.


The first was a cocktail reception hosted at a private ranch owned by longtime hospital supporters. More than 150 guests listened to the sounds of a string quartet of students from the Aspen Music Festival and remarks from the foundation's VP and CEO Anne Neeson, as well as Memorial Hermann's president and CEO David Callender. They both highlighted the importance of Life Flight, the Red Duke Trauma Institute, TIRR Memorial Hermann and the John S. Dunn Burn Center.

The next morning, a crowd gathered for brunch at The Garden at Hotel Jerome, which was decorated by Indigenous Design with beautiful, organic floral arrangements. The daytime event, featuring a soundtrack courtesy of Aspen's DJ Savy, was hosted by Melissa Juneau and Leticia Trauber, whose daughter Lexi Trauber attended on her behalf.

The weekend festivities concluded with the distribution of a parting gift in the form of a gilded Aspen-leaf ornament, representing the donation of Aspen trees by the Memorial Hermann Foundation to the Aspen School District, whose campus has suffered many tree losses.

Boutique Midrise Adds To Pedestrian Appeal Of Sought-After, Inner Loop Neighborhood

WITH ITS INAUGURAL set of residents newly moved in, Pelican Builders’ mid-rise condominium Westmore at 2323 W Main Street in Upper Kirby is already seeing the blossoming of a tight-knit community. Designed by Houston-based Mirador Group the Westmore is the first new condominium product to be introduced to the in-demand, inner loop neighborhood in more than three years. And with remaining two-bedroom homes starting at $895,000, it’s a remarkable value for this increasingly pricey area, where condos can easily climb to several million dollars and more.
