Memorial Hermann president and chief executive officer Dr. David Callender and Tonya Callender (pictured, from left) joined supporters of the Memorial Hermann Foundation and celebrated at this year’s two-day summertime Aspen Celebration. Anne Neeson, Foundation chief executive officer, shared the good news that Memorial Hermann Life Flight received a $5 million gift from the John M. O’Quinn Foundation which launches a major campaign to purchase new helicopters. Dr. Michelle McNutt and Tom Flanagan addressed the crowd with a few humorous anecdotes of working alongside Life Flight’s colorful creator, Dr. Red Duke, for many years. The event was chaired by Melissa Juneau, Leticia Trauber, and Hallie Vanderhider. Guests enjoyed signature cocktails appropriately named “Aviator” and “Red Duke,” while enjoying the evening reception at Hotel Jerome.
