What: Boys & Girls Harbor "Pirates and Princesses" children's fashion show and luncheon.

Where: The Royal Sonesta Houston.

The 411: Young residents of the Harbor and children of attending families rocked the runway in fashions from Little Lords and Ladies. Mamas and pappas escorting their youngsters were dressed by Tootsies and Lucho. Special escorts Houston Dynamo executive Brian Ching and Houston Texans quarterback Case Keenum also donned threads from Lucho. Co-chairs Jo Ann Petersen, Nancy Walker, Ashley Petersen and Holly Walker welcomed the 270 guests.

Radio personality Sam Malone and KHOU Channel 11 news anchor Mia Gradney emceed the luncheon that raised more than $95,000. Proceeds go to the non-profit that serves as a refuge for children, ages 5 to 18, in crisis due to neglect, abandonment, abuse or family hardship.

Who: Hector Villareal, Elizabeth Eklund, Tracy and Harry Faulkner, Elsie Eckert, Kimberly Keenum, Gary Petersen with Gervaise Gerstner, Connie Kwan-Wong, Cheryl Bobbit, Jane-Page and James Crump, Elizabeth Frost and Diane and Don Sweat, Boys & Girls Harbor president and CEO.
