SBEF Hosts Third Annual Style Show

A Legacy of Style features the Fall Collection from Tory Burch


Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) will host its third annual fashion event, A Legacy of Style, in partnership with designer Tory Burch and her Galleria I store. The event is planned for Friday, Nov. 22, at the Hilton Houston Post Oak, 2001 Post Oak Blvd. A reception will begin at 11 a.m., followed by the style show and luncheon at noon.

Co-chairs Debbie Slack and Susan Griffin are expecting the event to sell out. “A fun tradition for this show is that our volunteer models are readily recognized by the audience. As SBISD alumni or employees, they personify the strong legacy and loyalty we enjoy in the district,” said Griffin. “We are thrilled to work with the Tory Burch staff in presenting her fall collection.”

Patty Busmire, SBEF Board member and Special Events chair, has modeled in all three shows, “It’s a lot of fun and a great way to combine enthusiasm for the clothes with our passion for the Education Foundation.”

Joining Busmire as models are: Missy Balleza, Memorial High School alumna; Linda Buchman, SBISD Community Relations officer; Melissa DeAyala, Memorial High School alumna; Karin Donovan, staff, Valley Oaks Elementary; Michelle Eggert, Westchester High School alumna; Missy Grall, Westchester High School alumna; Anne Hachtman, Stratford High School alumna; Patty Pace, executive director, SBISD Elementary Administrative Services; Hayden Rome, Memorial High School alumna; Lisa Weir, principal, Memorial Middle School and Stratford High School alumna; Kim Wood, faculty, Memorial Middle School.

Tickets start at $800 for a table of 10 or $100 for individual tickets. Call 713.251.2381 for more information or to receive an invitation.

Special thanks to Tory Burch, New York, and Galleria 1.
