August 2012 Vol. 8 No. 10
Hello Fort Bend Friends, Boy how time flies when we’re having fun! Summer is almost behind us, and back to school is knocking at our door. As we prepare to head back to school and start the beginning of yet another new school year, Fort Bend Focus has assembled a special section to help you plan for both back to school and after school activities. While getting ready for school, I am sure you will need those annual checkups and medical releases for sports. In this issue, we have compiled Fort Bend’s Finest in Medicine. We really are beLisa Fredrickson and Patti Parish-Kaminski coming the medical hub of the Gulf Coast region. Our cover story this month is a testament to the growth and medical expertise in our area. We are showcasing Dr. Eric Humble and his new facility, Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery, to better serve you. Dr. Humble, along with his wife Dr. Lin Humble, are building a new center where they will provide Fort Bend residents with even more services, a private operating room along with a recovery area and a medical spa. Read all about what they provide for their clients starting on page 14. I am sure you have seen the JEWELS of Fort Bend for 2012, and I want to personally invite everyone to attend our 5th anniversary event. Fort Bend Focus Magazine Honors the JEWELS of Fort Bend is Thursday, September 20th, 2012 at Safari Texas. We are honoring five women who tirelessly serve our community, and this year’s beneficiary is Casa de Esperanza. At this year’s event, we will also celebrate our past JEWELS bringing the total to 25 JEWELS over the past five years. There will be a champagne reception sponsored by Will and Leena Hardee with the Hardee Investment Group for our VIP sponsors and a luncheon and fashion show with styles by Dillard’s. To honor these ladies and help support Casa de Esperanza, please purchase your tickets for $65 each or support the event with levels of sponsorships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
