What: National Multiple Sclerosis Society On the Move Luncheon.

Where: River Oaks Country Club.

The scoop: More than 400 guests packed the country club ballroom to support the fight against MS and honor individuals and companies supporting the cause. Emily Covey was honored as the Person On the Move, James Beard Award-winning Chef Chris Shepherd accepted the Company On the Move award on behalf of Southern Smoke, and Marilyn Jaggard was honored with the Above and Beyond Award, receiving the distinguished honor from last year's recipient, Franelle Rogers

Dan and Jennifer Digmann, authors of Despite MS, to Spite MS, shared their story about refusing to let the disease hold them back from enjoying and experiencing every moment life has to offer. The Michigan couple has dedicated their lives to MS activism and helping others to live their best life. "Today MS has met its match and together we can break through MS," they said as the audience responsed with a standing ovation.

Co-chairs Ashley Cruse and Catie Ross, along with honorary chair Erin Maggi, were thrilled that the luncheon brought in $200,000.

Who: Applauding the successful efforts were emcee Deborah Duncan, Brian Ross, Sam Cruse, Katie Brass, Stephanie Cockrell, Adrian and Rex Ross, Joyce Brass, Leslie Fertitta, Marcia Smart, Tama Klosek, Diana Mattingly, Wendy Bedortha, Liz and Brian Dinerstein, Luba Bigman, Kay and Ned Holmes, Lucinda Loya, Amber Mostyn, and Estela Cockrell.
