38 AS WINTER MELTS AWAY By Shelby Hodge. Photography Chris Brown, Kim Coffman, Dave Rossman. THE BIG SCHMOOZE E ven if winter wasn't exactly frosty in Houston, Legacy Community Health Services' annual Holiday Schmooze offered a wintry white wonderland to all. Snow-ladened trees dressed in twinkly lights at LifeHTX event space cast the needed spell. And with a jolly group of chairs — John and Becca Cason Thrash, Greggory and Pat Burk, Monsour Taghdisi and Henry Richardson, and Steve Summers and Glenn Gonzalez — it was a very merry happening. Present perfect: Chree Boydstun, Courtney Hopson, Joe'l and Rocky Mafrige, Milton Townsend, Melissa and Michael Mithoff, and Haydeh and Ali Davoudi. IT TAKES A FOREST Trees of Hope filled the Citadel on Kirby with must-have holiday trees and decorations up for grabs in a bidding frenzy for the benefit of Star of Hope. Honorary chair Lynn Wyatt was joined by chairs Donna Grehn and Sharon Schwartz. Tree huggers: Lisa and John Stoika, Courtney and Bill Toomey, Sandra and Reid Smith, Lori and Chip Johnson.
