AN IMPRESSIVE CROWD of 650 ladies who lunch turned up at the Post Oak Hotel to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society. The “Tickled Pink” affair was a resounding success, breaking attendance and fundraising records for the event while generating support for survivors and caregivers.


Chairs Jacquie Baly, Beth Wolff and Cynthia Wolff — along with honorary chair, breast-cancer survivor Leisa Holland-Nelson Bowman — hosted a pretty, pink-ified program that included a keynote address by physician Arif Kamal, the chief patient officer for the ACS, and a standing ovation for Houston women who have made a philanthropic impact, particularly in the cancer space.

A sold-out raffle and sale of bottomless Champagne glasses contributed to the afternoon’s total till of nearly $400,000. Way to think pink!

Ancient French Wellness Cures Reimagined at Houston’s Escape Spa: The Power of Vichy

Serial entrepreneur and spa visionary LeBrina Jackson

NESTLED IN THE heart of France, the town of Vichy holds a rich history in the world of wellness and hydrotherapy. Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.
