Galveston mayor, Jim Yarbrough and B.J. Herz, president of Better Parks for Galveston, welcomed the crowd of sponsors and committee members and highlighted the generosity of Sue and Richard Anderson for their $1 million contribution to the building fund as well as The Moody Foundation, Elle Moody, Frances Moody-Dahlberg and Ross Moody and the Harris and Eliza Kempner Fund for their enthusiastic financial support.  The City of Galveston was also recognized for its Parks and Recreation Department’s stewardship of the ambitious endeavor under the guidance of Brian Maxwell and Barbara Sanderson. 

The pool committee, led by Anne Brasier, received high praise for their efforts on behalf of the community and the party goers thanked Holly Hopkins and the gala committee for setting the stage for the light-hearted gathering.
