What: Heroes for Children Cocktail Party celebrating the 8th Annual Heroes and Handbags Luncheon

Where: Elaine Turner Rice Village

The 411: Surrounded by bags of every shape, color and style, Heroes for Children supporters gathered at designer Elaine Turner’s boutique to celebrate the charity that provides financial and social assistance to families with children battling cancer. The evening marked the last party for Heroes for Children before the 8th Annual Heroes & Handbags Luncheon May 8 at the Omni Hotel.

During the Handbags for Heroes luncheon, guests bid on array of donated designer bags and those at Turner’s store Thursday were able to take a peek at some of the bags the Houston-based designer donated to both the Houston and Dallas luncheons. SlimRitas poured guilt-free margaritas and makeup artist Jennifer Aronson offered touch-ups for those heading to the next destination on the evening’s busy party circuit.

Who: Diane Caplan, Dominique Sachse, Audrey Toll, Helena Papadopoulos Johnson, Michelle Posey, Apriel Westmoreland, Jackie Sheahan, JoAnn Scott and Peggy Scott.
