Attending a “ladies who brunch” function on a Sunday does not always come without a big purpose. April 2nd at Hughes Manor in Houston there was a full house filled with ladies dressed in their spring fashion best coming together to raise their glass to help fight and end childhood cancer. Hosted by Sky High benefiting St Jude Children’s Hospital, Texas Children’s Hospital, and the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis, you could not help share the love and enthusiasm this group brings to the table. I applaud Brittany Hebert (Founder & CEO), Jessy Deardurff (Operations Director), and Kristina Gutierrez (Event Coordinator) for a job well done. Event Chairs include Helen Winchell, Ashley Butler, and Jordan Simpson.
Also, I want to thank my friend Jill Bollich who introduced me to this organization. She is one of the Host committee members who did a phenomenal job planning this SOLD OUT event! During the brunch the ladies were entertained with a dress up photo booth, silent auction, a live auction, as well as an open mimosa bar, tunes from my friend DJ Senega, and a runway
fashion event showcasing women’s to children’s clothing by local stores Elizabeth Anthony and Bering’s. They had some amazing items up for auction including designer Fendi and Louis Vuitton handbags, art pieces, jewelry, and live auction items like trips to Colorado, Ritz-Carlton stays, wine tastings for 20, and so much more! I got into the bidding spirit but I capped out and did not win…but that’s okay! A lot of money was raised that day.
A special guest from the big NYC wowed the crowd on this day too. How wonderful to be sharing the room with the lovely and intelligent Lara Trump! Yes, the daughter-in-law to our President of the United
States Donald J. Trump. She even announced that she and Eric are expecting their first child….a son! Here is a little video blurb that I captured of the lovely lady in yellow talking about her hubby Eric Trump: https://youtu.be/Py4uvqII1v0
