Welcome back to Out and About … where you can find out what’s happening in our community. By the time you read this, lovely Sevala Sadic and her Prince Charming Terry Benton will be husband and wife, having married last Saturday afternoon in a romantic ceremony at the Kingwood Country Club Pavilion. Good friend Cheryl “CJ” Johnson hosted a shower for the couple the week prior. Faces in the “shower” crowd included: Hilton and Patty Kupritz; Wayne and Millie Garrison; Dick Waller and Michelle Parnell; Paul and Denise Krieger; Larry and Cynthia Calvert Shiflet; Diane Cantrell and Jack Burney; Dwayne Ulrich; Dave and Gwendolyn Crawford; Daniel and Cherrie Ledoux; Jim Jette. Tony Austin was solo because wife Cheryl was in New York for a girls’ getaway weekend with their daughter and daughter-in-law. Cheryl was able to snag complimentary tickets for “Wicked!” Mission Northeast held their seventh highly successful and fun luncheon and style show at the East Montgomery County Improvement District Building. Amedeo’s catered; Flowers of Kingwood provided floral centerpieces; table linens were provided by the truly elegant Jill Vidal of Elegant Beginnings. Pilar Gonzalez gave the gorgeous models (Gail Fry, Berenice Hutton, Penni Jones, Tonie Jones, Jean Kennedy, Blanca Langford; Stacy Okonski, Rebecca Riley, Christina Trout and Kim Vance) glamorous hairdos, while Mary Kay expert, Brenda Soley, provided fabulous make up. Fashion Consultant Caron McMahon and Stella and Dot jewelry expert Courtney Green provided the fantastic fashions and jewelry. The Tribune’s own gorgeous Cynthia Calvert was the emcee. It was record-breaking successful, with everyone having a grand time. The prestigious Joe Boyd Community Service Award was presented to Rev. Judy Tefteller from Kingwood United Methodist Church. Judy was selected because of her vision for creating and supporting Feed My Lambs, a meal program that has provided more than 100,000 meals to the needy since 2002. Judy has also brought community awareness and involvement to The Mission, and supported two key Mission programs, Mission Possible, a children’s summer program, and the Adult Education program. The award was created by Kingwood Glass. From a Bill’s Café Package to Sunday Brunch at Raffa’s; from Fred Astaire Kingwood Studio Dance lessons to the Administaff Rockets Suite and the Danell and Jess Fields Houston Sports Authority Astros Suite, the auction and bid board were outstanding, thanks to Auction Chair Chris Parker and her team. Larry Shiflet was surprised by table mates who stepped up to “over bid” him on the precious beagle- mix puppy provided by FMCTAS, Friends of Montgomery County Texas Animal Shelter. Larry had a maximum bid, and his table mates kept bidding more to benefit The Mission and present the very happy Shiflet with his new man’s best friend. Larry has changed Sitka’s name to “Cash,” but the delightful and delighted dog answers to whatever Larry chooses, as long as his last name is Shiflet! The gorgeous home of former Congressman Jack Fields and wife Lynn was the scene of Dan Huberty’s “into the home stretch” run for Texas State Representative District 127. It was the place to see and be seen as luminaries such as State Senator Tommy Williams; Constable Ron Hickman; Pete and Jackie Hinojosa; Brent Engelage; Robert and Jayme Scarfo; Bonnie Longnion; Dave Martin; Carl and Colene Joiner; Joe and Tracy Stunja; Dr. Mike and Linda Woehst; Dr. Gary and Theo Christman; Ron and Halene Crossman; Rod and Eunice Dennis; Roger Schuelke; Roddy and Patsy McAlpine; Eileen Booher; Judy Luquette; Doug and Cam Stanley; Larry and Cynthia Calvert Shiflet, and of course, Dan’s fabulous wife Janet gathered to show support for Dan. This Friday, Oct. 15, from 7 – 10, Keller Williams Northeast presents their monthly free Concert Series at Kings Harbor. Beautiful Latin artist Yelba will be there with her Variety Band. Yelba is described as having the voice of an angel―so come out and hear for yourself!
