The Pavilion Partners - September Newsletter 


Hello Partners - As many of you know, Betty Nelson's husband Ray (long time Partners) is in the Hospital with Blood Cancer and recently received a Stem-Cell Transplant.  He has not yet begun producing blood cells and is in need of daily blood transfusions which are very expensive. MD Anderson offered to organize a blood drive here in The Woodlands where we can donate blood in Ray's name.  The drive is being planned for a weekend day, but they will need at least 40 people to commit to donating blood to get this done.  If you would be interested in helping out by donating blood, please email me ASAP and I will add your name to the list.  Thank you!

From the Desk of Your Partners President


Partners News

Although it is still Hot outside, Autumn is here and with the start of a brand new season, The Pavilion is rolling out a new program for Partners called "Partners Picks."  We are so fortunate to have so many local businesses that continue to help out The Pavilion and The Pavilion Partners at so many of our events, and we decided that we would like to give back.  The "Partners Picks" program will highlight a different business each month, and that business will run a special of their choice exclusively to Partners.  All you have to do is show up at our Partner Pick Business of the month anytime within the dates chosen and show them your badge and enjoy!  We hope you will all support this program.

This month's "Partner Pick" is Woodlands Wine Company (see below). 

Woodlands Wine Company is a locally owned and operated retail wine shop and wine bar.  They specialize in small production wines from around the world.  
They offer wine tastings every Saturday afternoon, special tasting events and private events as well as a selection of wines by the carafe, cheeses and assistance with off site wine events. 

Partners can enjoy a half price carafe from Sept 19-Oct 19 by showing your badge or ID.

The Annual Pavilion Partners Pre-Concert Fundraiser was held on Saturday, September 10th before the Santana Concert.  The event was held in The House of Blues Tent and included a Live Auction, Fedora Raffle, and a Cascarone sale where one lucky winner walking away with a 1/2 Karat Diamond compliments of John Robichau at Robichau Jewelry.  
Our Auction Emcee was Sunny 99.1's Dana Tyson!  All monies raised at the fundraiser will benefit our Educational Outreach Program.

Frequently Asked Question

I am still trying to fulfill my 8 events, why doesn't anyone contact me when they need Volunteers?


We want everyone to be able to fulfill their 8 or 10 events before the end of each season, but we simply cannot sit down and call each partner and ask them if they will volunteer. 
That is why we ask that all Partners go onto the Partner Website and sign up for any events they are available to work.  
This is the best way to let our office know that you are available, and if we need volunteers, you will have top priority.

Thank you Partners for all your hard work and dedication to The Pavilion and to the Pavilion Partners. 
We couldn't do it without you and we look forward to sharing the rest of the 2011 season with you.
