What: The Durham House inaugural charitable Sunday brunch.

Where: The Durham House.

The scoop: Supporters of the educational non-profit PledgeCents gathered in force for the rodeo-themed brunch, the special menu created by chef Mike McElroy. In three seatings, the 175 guests feasted on everything from steel cut oats to seafood gumbo, beef cheeks, vegetable Pontalba, and stuffed beignets.

In April, The Durham House hosts a Sunday brunch for the Houston Young Lawyers Foundation benefiting that organization's grant program. The restaurant is inviting like-minded non-profits to join the Sunday brunch fundraising effort. Contact is here: info@thedurhamhouse.com.
