What: Kick-off party for the National MS Society's On the Move Luncheon.

Where: Private Memorial-area home.

The scoop: With five vintners providing tasting sips, plus delicious bites, it’s little wonder the 100 guests in attendance at a kick-off party for the On the Move Luncheon lingered late into the evening. 

It was all in the name of a good cause because funds raised from the upcoming luncheon will go to the National MS Society, a non-profit organization that works to support those impacted by MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system.

Ashley Cruse and Catie Ross, along with honorary chairman Erin Maggi, are set to chair this year's event, slated for March 22 at River Oaks Country Club. Great Day Houston’s Deborah Duncan will emcee and special guests will include keynote speakers, Dan and Jennifer Digmann, who both live with MS.

Who: Spotted in the crowd were Marilyn Jaggard, Emily Covey, Franelle Rogers, Meredith Chastang, Wendy Bedortha, Lesha Elsenbrook, Stephanie Cockrell, Diana and Joe Mattingly, Katie Brass, Adrian and Rex Ross, Shelley Kaplan, Katie Ingram, Michael and Erin Maggi, Fady Armanious, Brook Gunst, and Jacqui Knees.
