What: Asian Pacific American Heritage Association cocktail reception and kickoff for "Dancing with the APAHA Stars" gala.

Where: Prada Houston Galleria boutique.

The scoop: Who knew Adrian Garcia could dance? The former Harris County sheriff was revealed as one of the contestants who will take part in the dance-themed Asian Pacific American Heritage Association gala on May 21 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. He will join community fundraiser Anika Jackson, Dr. Monica Patel (who is rumored to be one of the stars of the Bravo series, Married to Medicine) and dentist Dr. Marc Nguyen in the fun-filled danced competition.

The dancers were introduced at a cocktail party at the posh Prada store, where APAHA president Nelvin Adriarico-Thandani also announced three gala honorees: Judge Theresa Chang, Munira Panjwani, and ABC 13. Sneha Merchant is this year's gala chairwoman. A portion of sales  at the Prada store went to support APAHA.

Who: Joining in the fun were Nick Merchant, Duyen Nguyen, Chloe Nguyen, Tatiana Massey,  Chau Nguyen, Viet Hoang, Amy Dichoso, Tabitha Smith, Gordon Quan, Christina Zhou, Sippi Khurana, Anu Reddy, Ryan Nguyen, Vy Le, Krish Arora, Wayne Nguyen, Alice and Matt Brams, Rose Chen and David Webster, and Nina Magon.
