SCENE Lane Bowden and Chair Jeb Bowden EVENT: 22ND ANNUAL SPRING GOLF CLASSIC WHERE: MEMORIAL PARK GOLF COURSE The Children’s Museum of Houston hosted a trium- phant afternoon of golf clubs, putting greens and scorecards at the 22nd Annual Spring Golf Classic sold-out tournament on April 11 at Memorial Park Golf Course. Rain-or-shine more than 150-golfers attended the sold- out event. Chaired by Jeb Bowden and Matt Kafka, the tournament was an overall victory, raising close to $135,000 for the Museum’s free and reduced admissions programs, ensuring that no visitor is turned away due to financial constraints. The Children’s Museum of Houston’s free outreach programs are presented at schools, libraries and community centers. Last year, these programs had a total attendance of nearly 330,000 at more than 280 locations across the Greater Houston area.

The night kicked off with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails as guests mingled throughout the Weavers’ historic 1920’s home designed by Birdsall Briscoe. Guests were then seated in an outdoor entertainment pavilion for catered cuisine by City Kitchen featuring Chilled Asparagus Soup, Roasted Rack of Lamb served with Rice Pilaf and Heirloom Baby Carrots, Gougères, and Toffee and Coffee Ice Cream Pie.
