Two Classes of Classy Ladies Celebrated at Annual Winter Ball Women of Distinction Announcement Party
A packed crowd was on hand to support The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, Southern Texas Chapter as they celebrated and honored the 2022 Women of Distinction and recognized the 2021 Women of Distinction (who were unable to have an announcement event last year due to COVID scheduling issues) at Elizabeth Anthony.
The always entertaining Johnny Bravo interviewed and welcomed guests on the red carpet prior to a champagne reception. Event producers Lenny Matuszewski and Tamara Bonar were on-hand to assist with the presentation of the honorees.
