Desptie the chill in the air Friday night, the annual Candlelighters' YP Holiday Bash held at Antique Lounge drew around 200 revelers. Celebrants decided to forego the spacious patio and instead huddle indoors, where beverages provided by local brewer Leprechaun Cider, Austin-based Deep Eddy and Savvy vodkas and Hideous liqueur kept bodies warm.
Also heating up the night was Sensual Soul, a soul band often seen rocking the same venue during its days as the Gallant Knight.
Between ticket sales and corporate sponsors, the third annual event raised more than $15,000 to continue Candlelighters' mission of serving families and children battling cancer.
Spotted making the rounds in their most festive attire were hosts Aron Will and Roula Zoghbi, Brett Magill, Will and Allison Evans, Davis and Blayne Bonham, Ellie Couch, Elizabeth Haines, Keefer Lehner, Lance Gilliam, Jr.and others.
