For information Prizeo have announced winner of their competition and it is a girl called Inga R.  Can't add any information about her, sorry.  Here is link to page which confirms winner.  Hadn't seen it announced anywhere but it was Kaz Hudspith who found and Lynn Brennan put it out in a tweet.  Prizeo certainly never tweeted it although that was what we were waiting for but at least now we know. 

Believe can add, if Inga is either on the website or a lurker, that we extend every congratulation to her and hope she has a wonderful, wonderful time collecting her prize and meeting Michael ..... have a super time Inga !!! :)

Lovely pic of Michael with Angie Harmon, UNICEF Ambassador, at the Audrey Hepburn Society Ball in Houston, Texas last night. 

Link to article with pics from the UNICEF event which contains one pic of Michael and here it is .....

and here is link to article with transcript below:

http://www.chron.com/life/society/article/Michael-Bolton-and-Angie-...

"Truth be told, there was an awful lot of program packed into UNICEF's fourth annual Audrey Hepburn Society Ball on Wednesday night. That's to be expected with 12 honorary chairs, eight gala chairs, three NextGen chairs, and 45 gala committee members (including yours truly). In the end, and most importantly, the evening's message could not have been more clear: human trafficking is a serious issue that affects children worldwide, even here in our own Bayou City backyards.

The festivities opened in song thanks to a few impromptu riffs from emcee Deborah Duncan and a performance by the Awty International School Choir.

Then it was onto Mayor Sylvester Turner who broke from his usual off-the-cuff and oft-comedic remarks to outline how city officials and local law enforcement plan to address Houston's sex trafficking challenges. His daughter, Ashley Turner, later lightened the mood as one of the NextGen after-party chairs; Nina and Karun Magon rounded out the trio.

UNICEF USA CEO and Executive Vice President Barron Segar helped Margaret Alkek Williamsbestow her namesake Humanitarian Award to Rosanette and Harry Cullen.

"Harry Sr. couldn't be here tonight, so Harry Jr. is here. And if that isn't enough, Harry III is here, too," Rosanette quipped from the stage.

And so – in more ways than one – children effectively stole the spotlight. Not to slight Spirit of Compassion Award recipient Angie Harmon; though the "Law & Order" and "Rizzoli & Isles" actress's three daughters proved to be sassy teleprompter-reading stars in their own right.

"You may know my mom from TV shows," middle child Avery Grace Sehorn said from the stage. Harmon has previously portrayed a hard-hitting assistant district attorney and a police detective. "And yes, she's exactly like her characters in real life."

Harmon, a UNICEF ambassador and End Trafficking spokesperson, was visibly moved by her daughters' introduction and praise of her altruistic work. "I didn't really have a purpose until they got here."

Nelson Bowman (managing director of the Southwest Region), Susan Boggio (board chair), and Amy Pierce (gala chair) followed. Each drove home the importance of being generous and how children around the globe benefit from the audience's financial contributions. Stephen C. Lewisoffered up five live auction packages which helped some 450 ball-goers raise more than $910,000.

Grammy Award-winning artist and humanitarian Michael Bolton closed the show with a three-song concert including classic hits "When a Man Loves a Woman" and "Stand by Me."

Much of the crowd departed around 10 p.m., just in time to let the "kids" takeover the dance floor during NextGen's late-night social."
