More than 700 Houstonians gathered at the home of Paige and Tilman Fertitta (pictured, at right, with TexasSen. John Whitmire and Mayor Sylvester Turner, from left), to show their support for Houston Police Department officers at the annual Houston Police Foundation True Blue Gala. Dinner chair Laura Ward and the night’s master of ceremonies, Dave Ward, were recognized for chairing the annual fundraiser. The event was sold out and raised more than $700,000. The funds will provide equipment and training for the Houston Police Department. In the crowd were Kristina and Paul Somerville, Don and Laura Sanders, Alice and Keith Mosing, JoLynn and Gregg Falgout, Jim Crane and Whitney Wheeler, Danielle and Lawrence Berry, Twilla Cater, Joni Baird, Laura and Bob Beauchamp, Dancie Ware, Hannah and Cal McNair, and Tissy and Rusty Hardin.
