Let's Hear It for the 'Girls!' Astros' Wives Throw a Fash Bash for Charity

Samantha Scott, Reagan Bregman and Kara McCullers

DOZENS OF SAVVY socialites and shoppers gathered at Tootsies to sip and shop during an event hosted by Kat Pressly and Janelise Maldonado, wives of Astros stars.

The afternoon benefited Girls Inc., a nonprofit that gives school-age girls enrichment opportunities such as day camps and seminars, and encourages them to be "strong, smart and bold." The Houston CEO, Treopia Cannon, stopped by to thank attendees and tell them a little more about the organization.

Dressed in summertime shades of green, pink and white — and, of course, Astros orange and blue — the fashionable femmes included Reagan Bregman, Kara McCullers, and Astros execs Paula Harris and Anita Sehgal. Raffle winner Donna Lewis received four club-level seats for an upcoming game!

“DO YOU KNOW how a river forms?” is the question that begins Houston author Vaishnavi Patel’s new book, The Goddess of the River. The voice belongs to Ganga, goddess of India’s Ganges river, who has been transformed against her will by Lord Shiva from “a tributary of the cosmic ocean” into the physical form of a mere winding river, with no path to the heavens, only the sea. Later, Ganga runs afoul of a powerful sage who transforms her yet again into a human, and as it happens in myths, things get complicated.
