Houstonians stopping by Petite Sweets for a sweet treat on June 26 were treated to more than delectable macarons, cake balls, and mini cupcakes.

As part of CultureMap's new partnership with Frost Bank, and in celebration of our newly launched CultureMap Charity Guide, lucky patrons were treated to an afternoon of surprise giveaways designed to #frostitforward.

Customers were surprised with a free treats, discounts, and a special Frost cash card. In the spirit of spreading optimism, each card came with a note asking the receiver to use the money to spark a random act of generosity for someone else. 

Because we also want to #frostitforward, CultureMap has created our Houston Charity Guide as a one-stop destination for area nonprofits and charities. Search for an organization by name or category to learn about the mission and how to give back. As a CultureMap reader, you will uncover inspiring and heartfelt stories about these organizations all year long as part of our Charity Guide special editorial series.

The pop-up was the first of several surprise events in Houston over the course of 2018. Each month, the CultureMap street team will head to a secret location to surprise and delight Houstonians. Follow along on Instagram and Twitter for hints about our next stop.
