Over 340 Houstonians from business, non-profit, academic and political circles gathered on Thursday, October 29, 2015 for Scenic Houston‘s annual dinner to recognize this past year’s work.
Chaired by Jan Sparks and Michael Snodgrass, the evening honored Robert Duncan, founder and chairman of TRANSWESTERN, for his contributions and presented him with the organization’s 2015 Scenic Visionary Award. Through his leadership of the TRANSWESTERN family of companies, Duncan embraces the fact that strong attention to the visual appearance of streetscapes and public spaces strengthens Houston’s image as a world-class city.
Following the outdoor reception, guests moved indoors for a dinner of seasonal salad, tournedos of beef and the Houston Country Club’s legendary ice cream pecan ball.
The event proved to be highly successful raising $341,100 to support Scenic Houston’s streetscape enhancement initiatives.
