Sharing a Taste of Houston

Last year, the 180 participating restaurants in Houston Restaurant Weeks raised $1,285,260 for the food bank. Ray says, “Ray’s Grill has participated in Houston Restaurant Weeks for the last five years and Sorrel Urban Bistro has participated since it opened three years ago. Last year these two restaurants alone donated more than $11,000 to the Houston Food Bank...and we certainly hope to top that number this year with your help! Not only is this an opportunity to give back...it’s also the perfect opportunity to experience amazing food from our city’s most talented chefs. Good food unites us, and Houston Restaurant Weeks is an event that nourishes body, spirit, and community. Come celebrate with us!”

Dentistry 101: Get a Smarter Smile…Check!

Who do you trust with your family's teeth? Your smile affects your confidence, relationships, career, and every aspect of life. Dr. Thomas Lomonte, D.D.S. of Stafford says, “A great smile is important at every age, and behind every great smile is great oral health. Everyone, from age 1 to 101, should have dental checkups twice a year. What you hear most often after a dental visit is, ‘No Cavities!’ But checking your teeth for tooth decay is just one part of a thorough dental examination. We evaluate the health of your gums, look for anything out of the ordinary with your head, neck and jaw joints, and examine your mouth for any indications of oral cancer, diabetes or vitamin deficiency.”

Why Supporting a Local Business Makes Classic Good Sense

Several studies have shown that every dollar you spend at a locally-owned business returns five times that amount to our community. Your support helps create jobs and your tax dollars go right back into our roads, schools, and parks. Why would you want those dollars to go to some other state or some other far-off country? Don says, “At Classic Chevrolet we went from zero employees in January of 2009 to more than two hundred today and most live and do their shopping right here in Fort Bend. We are your friends and your neighbors...and we’ll treat you right!”

Revolution, Right Now!

Fort Bend Theatre, which celebrates its 25th season this year, is hoping to touch people by educating them on a devastating local phenomenon. “Research shows that Houston has the greatest occurrence of human trafficking in the country,” says Executive Artistic Director Tarra McCain, “and we want to make a difference.” McCain has invited several non-profit groups who aid victims of human trafficking, including Free the Captives, Redeemed Ministries and Freedom Place, to be in attendance, and a portion of ticket sales will go to their causes.
