WOW Factor

In an effort to raise funds and awareness for Dress for Success Houston, Women of Wardrobe (WOW) celebrated its highest-grossing evening at the 14th annual Tootsies Summer Soiree. KHOU’s Mia Gradney played emcee for the evening and Dress for Success Vice President Lauren Levicki Courville shed light on the lasting impact the organization will have on over 3,500 women this year. Dressed in “haute” summer looks, over 300 guests perused the trendy West Avenue store where eye-catching fashions by Parker and jewels by Lisa Freede were on display, along with a very popular “bundt wall” — exclusively handcrafted by Nothing Bundt Cakes and donated to Dress for Success — where guests were welcome to handpick their preferred flavor right off the wall.

‘Culture of Service and Accountability’ Supports Mission of Orion EMS

Gerard O’Brien, President/CEO & Founder, and Sumi Patel, Vice President

HOW DID YOU get where you are today? The EMS industry, quite literally, never stops. Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
