August 28th 2013, the 3rd annual Houston PetSet Gifting Event was held at Saks Fifth Avenue, 5115 Westheimer (77056). The evening was chaired by Courtney Hopson, Tena Lundquist Faust and Tama Lundquist. Deborah Duncan, host of KHOU’s Great Day Houston and Houston PetSet Honorary Board Member, emceed the event that was generously sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue.This remarkable event was to recognize the 2013 grant recipients
As guest mixed and mingled over sensational wine and marvelous h’orderves; it spawned an advantageous time to established new relationships as well as see old friends. The trendy tones of everyone’s appearance balanced the atmosphere provided by Saks Fifth Avenue.
Saks Fifth Avenue today is renowned for its superlative selling services and merchandise offerings. The best of European and American designers for men and women are sold throughout its 41 stores servicing customers in 22 states (saksfifthavenue.com)
Overall this event was extremely successful, very well organized and the cause was worth attending. From start to finish, everyone seemed to mesh and together, with the turnout it made for a cohesive event. How many times can you say that you were able to shop, eat, enjoy wine, meet wonderful, genuine people and at the same time; donate toward something that would benefit a worthy cause? If you missed last night, you missed at least one!
It was an added pleasure of meeting the highly passionate pet lovers, who know the importance of our furry friends having basic needs as well as small luxuries. I was especially grateful to have met Houston PetSet, CoPresidents “The Twin Towers” Tena Lundquist Faust and Tama Lundquist. Special thanks to Mrs. Judy Nichols and Kristy Gillentine. The hospitality and red carpet treatment provided by everyone from Saks staff to the event organizers was phenomenal. Additional photos: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zhgrsak1eyw6tj0/BFat7P2WN_
