On Friday, April 28, nearly 600 guests gathered in a lavish tent on the grounds of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands for the hospital’s Grand Opening Gala. They were treated to delectable delights and stunning décor by A Fare Extraordinaire before president of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands, Michelle Riley-Brown, welcomed everyone to the fête.

Co-chaired by Tracey & Sean O’Neal and Johnna & Ryan Edone, the event raised nearly $900,000 for Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands. Guests bid on items during a live auction before they were treated to a performance by singer-songwriter Jewel, who performed for children at the hospital earlier in the day. The artist shared the inspiration behind her music and her gratitude for the work being done at Texas Children’s.

The following morning, April 29, hospital leadership, community partners and families celebrated the grand opening of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands with a commemorative ribbon cutting ceremony and Inaugural Family Fun Run. In partnership with the Houston Marathon Foundation, the Family Fun Run encourages Houston-area children and their families to adopt active, healthy lifestyles. 1,500 participants crossed the finish line and then enjoyed snacks, face painting, festival games and more at the Family Fun Zone presented by H-E-B.

Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands, the first hospital devoted to children’s care for communities north of Houston, opened its doors in April 2017. Located in one of the fastest growing areas in north Houston, the hospital, which has a staff of over 600, has already provided thousands of patients with specialty care closer to home. The outpatient tower, which opened in October 2016, includes 72 exam rooms and clinics for major pediatric specialties including cancer, cardiology, allergy/immunology/rheumatology and diabetes/endocrinology. The hospital’s inpatient tower features the area’s only dedicated pediatric emergency center with 25 patient rooms, 32 acute care beds, four operating rooms, 12 radiology suites and 28 critical care rooms.

Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Navy Veteran Tammie Jo Shults. Tammie Jo served for 10 years as a pilot and earned the rank of lieutenant commander. Tammie Jo grew up on a New Mexico ranch near Holloman Air Force Base where she developed her interest in flying. She attended MidAmerica Nazarene University, graduating in 1983. A year after taking the Navy aviation exam, Tammie Jo found a recruiter who processed her application. She attended officer candidate school in Pensacola, Florida, and was assigned to a training squadron at Naval Air Station Chase Field in Beeville, Texas. Tammie Jo was an instructor pilot, teaching students how to fly the Navy T-2 trainer. She later flew the A-7 Corsair in Lemoore, California. Tammie Jo was among the first female fighter pilots for the Navy and was the first woman to fly an F/A-18 Hornet. In 1993, after 10 years of service, she left the Navy. Earlier this week, Tammie Jo completed the successful emergency landing of Southwest flight 1380 at the Philadelphia International Airport. The Boeing 737-700 lost an engine, causing shrapnel to strike a window. With 148 people on board, one woman died and seven were injured. Thank you for your service, Tammie Jo.
