With the party season almost over and social swans packing their bags for cooler climes, CancerForward's "The New Summer Standard" dinner dance on Wednesday served as something of a fond farewell.
The ballroom of Houston Country Club was awash with gents in white dinner jackets and ladies in colorful party frocks, all on hand to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day and to honor three-time cancer survivor Nancy Moncrief.
The evening was chaired by Lisa and Mike O'Leary and Liz and Robert Rigney. Stepping in as honorary chairs were Betty and Stephen Newton, Cabrina and Steven Owsley and Phoebe and Bobby Tudor.
Delivering just the right supper club ambiance, the Richard Brown Orchestra kept the dance floor packed until closing time. Crooning the tunes that had the toes tapping were Sharon Montgomery, Tommie Lee Bradley, Bob Luna and Kamil.
A young contingent joined this party scene including Allison Poarch, Preston Kamin, Meg Kamin, Brooke Wise, Jason Kaminsky, Brooke Beebe, Kristen Kaminsky, Jeffrey Wise and Kenady Davis.
