Three hundred gathered at The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown to support SBP, a disaster recovery nonprofit that rebuilds homes after disasters. The Answering the Call event raised $1.4 million. Chairs were Nina Westbrook, Alicia Smith and Laurel D’Antoni. Honorary chairs were Jennifer and David Ducote, Brigitte and Bashar Kalai, Hannah and Cal McNair, Ashley and Jeremy Radack, Sydney and Jeff Shellebarger, Leticia and Stephen Trauber, Stephanie and Frank Tsuru, and Hallie Vanderhider. Emcee Deborah Duncan led the evening, which began with thunder and lightning – a reminder of devastating Houston storms. The Build a House appeal was a success with support from Mike D’Antoni, Hallie Vanderhider, CITGO and a surprise gift from The Astros Foundation of $280,000 to rebuild new homes for those in need after Harvey and Imelda. SBP will need ongoing volunteer and financial support to continue rebuilding for Houston families in need; see SBPAnsweringTheCall.org
