More than 100 guests gathered at The Dunlavy in support of Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP) for a unique opportunity to enjoy dinner at this private event space operated by Clark Cooper Concepts and nestled within the Lost Lake area of Buffalo Bayou Park on April 12, 2017. BBP is the non-profit organization responsible for the transformation and ongoing maintenance of Buffalo Bayou Park—the 160 acres that stretch from Shepherd Drive to Sabine Street.
The evening began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace overlooking Buffalo Bayou. Plans and visionary renderings of Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s future projects were also on display for guests to peruse. The crowd then moved inside the chandelier-filled dining room for a superb four-course dinner with wine pairings from Markham Vineyards. Emily Meyer with Terlato Wines was on-hand to introduce each pairing. Guests dined on a goat cheese and apple salad, seared sea scallop and filet mignon au poivre with grilled Texas quail.
As dessert was served, BBP Board Chair Tom Fish and Chair Emeritus Sis Johnson drew the names of two lucky winners who got to take home a bottle of Markham wine signed by the winemaker. The delighted winners were David Mandell and Christina Lyons.
Proceeds from the evening will support Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s continued efforts to revitalize, maintain and activate Buffalo Bayou—Houston’s most significant natural resource.
