What: One Night for OneGoal fundraiser party.
Where: Gray's Public House
The 411: Houston lawyers and college buddies William McDonald and Justin Moore chaired a fundraiser that raised money for the local non-profit organization, OneGoal. OneGoal is dedicated to training and equipping teachers to help underperforming students and increase the graduation rates in low income communities. The event, an idea that McDonald and Moore have had since their law school days, is the first of a planned new annual series called "One Night" that will honor organizations that impact the diverse communities of Houston.
The event was geared towards young professionals and it hoped to create an exciting atmosphere for giving back. An inspiring group of Houstonians attended including OneGoal leaders Maria Canales and Marisa Wolf. The party, equipped with tunes from DJ Bananaz and drinks and food from Gray's Public House, honored OneGoal in style.
Who: McDonald of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP and his wife Lisa Dawn fashion/lifestyle blogger of A Chic Effect, Moore of Vinson and Elkins, photographer CJ Martin and many more Houston young professionals.
