FEED Your Soul
Houston Native Lauren Bush Lauren has collaborated with Target for her company FEED. FEED began in 2006 when she designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) School Feeding program. She first created the FEED 1 bag, a reversible burlap and organic cotton bag reminiscent of the bags of food distributed by WFP, to help raise funds and awareness around these school feeding operations. It was stamped with “FEED the children of the world” and the number ‘1’ to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year. At Target, you will find FEED mens and womens clothing, accessories and home goods. With every purchase, you help provide meals to children and families across America.

Frank Caliendo Gets Audience to “Stand Up For Our Youth” at CHILDREN AT RISK Gala

The Bayou Music Center was rocking, as Frank Caliendo kept the audience laughing. The crowd was thrilled, while leaning back anticipating who was next. The master impressionist known for impersonating everyone from Charles Barkley to Al Pacino (including a few ex-presidents), was on fire. Sports fans recognize Caliendo from his work on ESPN and Fox NFL Sunday, while others recognize him from Madtv and his “gut busting” stand-up routines. “An Evening with Frank Caliendo - Standing Up For Our Youth,” was the show that will have Houstonians laughing out loud as they look forward to next year’s gala. Over 400 people attended the gala, which benefited CHILDREN AT RISK and its education reform initiative. The event raised $300,000 and was co-chaired by Nicole and Jim Perdue, Jr., Sai and Karun Sreerama, and Heather and Bob Westendarp. Major benefactors included Leslie Alexander/Houston Rockets, MJC events/Lucia and Michael Cordúa, AIG, and Perdue, Kidd & Vickery. Jennifer Esterline, Janet Harman, and Beau Ross received the 2013 Founders Award for their vision and work as champions of Texas public schools. In addition to Caliendo, the spectacular event also featured a VIP reception, and an exclusive live auction. Michael Cordúa catered the gala which began with a private reception featuring cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. True to the education theme, guests dined on gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, smoked tomato soup, buffalo frito pie, Churrasco and exquisite fish sticks. For dessert, guests were served Cordúa’s famed Tres Leches and twankies (not Twinkies). Emmy-winning anchor Dominique Sachse of KPRC-2 News was the mistress of ceremonies. Ultimate Weatherman Frank Billingsley, chief meteorologist of KPRC-2 News, led the fast-paced live auction.
