What: Children at Risk "Friday Night Live With Iliza Shlesinger — Stand Up for Kids."

Where: The Corinthian.

The scoop: As host of the TBS comedy/game show Separation Anxiety, the winner of the sixth season of NBC's Last Comic Standing, and host of the syndicated dating show Excused, Shlesinger delivered with the laughs that the 375 guests expected. In keeping with the gala's theme, many of those guests dressed as their favorite Saturday Night Live character.

The event, which raised more than $250,000, was chaired by Anika Jackson and Staci Henderson with Channel 13 KTRK news anchor Melanie Lawson serving as emcee. Honored were AIG and the company's chief compliance officer Kyle Jennings for their commitment to ensuring a better life for Texas children.

Who: Islara and Volkan Irgit, Donae and Rob Chromasta, Shelby Kibodeaux and Bruce Padilla, Melissa and David Horn, Jennifer Waldern and Jason Grand, Meagan and Larry Wisniewski, Michele and Chris Kryger, and Bridgett Mark Matthes.
