The 19th annual San Luis Salute gala welcomed over 1,600 guests. The evening began with a champagne party at Tilman and Paige Fertitta’s yacht, the Boardwalk, where guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails under a crystal tent overlooking Galveston’s Pier 21 harbor. This year’s San Luis Salute honorees were Dr. Alan Barrett, Dr. Thomas Geisbert, Dr. Thomas Ksiazek, Dr. James Le Duc and Dr. Scott Weaver. NASA astronaut Scott Kelly was also honored at the event, just before he departed on his mission to spend one year aboard the space station, in what would be a single-mission record for a U.S. astronaut. Also among those toasting were KPRC chief meteorologist Frank Billingsley and husband Kevin Gilliard, Libbie and Bill Ansell, Susan and Dick Hansen, Vicki West, Tara and David Wurthrich, Francie Moody Dahlberg and her husband Kevin, Cindy and Jim Earthman, Carol and Tom Sawyer, Linda Brown, Blake Tartt, Pam and Kelly Roberts, Katie and Harry Cullen, Joan and David Dunlap, and Adrian and Rex Ross.
