Tony’s was the setting for UTHealth President Giuseppe Colasurdo, M.D.’s Winter Reception to thank Development Board members who help raise funds and awareness of Houston’s Health University and to kick off the New Year. 

Nearly 100 guests were on hand on Thursday, Jan. 15 as Colasurdo expressed his gratitude, outlined accomplishments and announced a new matching gift campaign, Game Changers, to double endowments for UTHealth over the next year.

“Thanks in large part to our stellar Development Board, 2014 was a wonderful year for our university,” Colasurdo said. “We are so fortunate to have such dedicated advocates, supporters and friends.”

During the reception, featuring music by vocalist and saxophonist David Caceres, Ginni and Richard Mithoff were presented a gift for their leadership role in orchestrating UTHealth’s first and highly successful Constellation Gala this past fall. The Mithoffs chaired the gala, which honored James H. “Red” Duke, Jr., M.D., and raised almost $2 million to establish new endowed scholarships and professorships.

Melinda and Mike Perrin, Beth Robertson, Cathy Brock, Harry and Antje Gee, David and Judy Beck, Larry and Suzie Johnson, Ralph and Bette Thomas, Richard Andrassy, M.D., and Harper and Kelley Trammell were among the guests at Colasurdo’s reception.
