Over 250 “Outer” Space fans landed at the River Oaks home of Kim and Dan Tutcher for a “friendraiser” for Space Center Houston. Hosted by Board member Pat Cunningham, the first ever event had the added appeal of tasting excellent wines, which wine connoisseur Franelle Rogers arranged including the appropriately named Meteor wine. Guests learned about the extensive education programs offered at Space Center for students and teachers. Since doors opened in 1992, Space Center Houston has welcomed 13 million visitors, provided educational programs for 70,000 teachers and classes for 50,000 Houston area teachers. Joining Cunningham was former space shuttle commander Dick Richards, who commanded four shuttle missions. Ellen Ochoa, three-time mission payload specialist, mingled in the crowd as well. Guests were greeted by valet parkers dressed in flight suits. Mixing and mingling attendees viewed models of shuttles, rockets and planets with Director of Education for Space Center Houston, Dr. Melanie Johnson on hand to answer any questions. As they departed goodie bags included a piece of space, part of a meteor to take home.
Rising Artist Enters The Houston Art Scene

Former investment broker-turned painter, Katherine Houston, awed her guests with abstract images inspired by city life and landscapes. What gathered strong interest, however, was her original practice of “reverse painting.” With this technique, Houston paints an image on one side of the glass, but her actual work of art is pictured on the reverse side. Phoenicia Specialty Foods provided several light snacks for the event.
