What: Club PetSet's Must Love Dogs: Meet Your Match 

Where: Chapman & Kirby

The scoop: 30 members of Club PetSet Young Professionals and Houston’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes gathered for a mixer to benefit the city’s homeless animals at Chapman & Kirby, the retro-chic American gastropub and nightlife spot. Guests doted on the adoptable puppies from Harris County Animal Shelter while learning about the organization’s ongoing need for fosters. Between sipping and noshing on cocktails and light bites donated by the restaurant, party-goers looking to meet their match checked out the science behind local start-up Pheramor’s dating app.

The evening capped off with a silent auction featuring date night packages curated by the host bachelors and bachelorettes. Sought-after items included tickets to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s upcoming tour kindly donated by Club PetSet bachelor Andrew Dao; a Houston Astros date day; seats at a Houston Rockets Western Conference Finals game; a lifetime membership to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and an exclusive fitness class at Sweat 1000. The generous guests raised a total of $2,249 to be donated to Houston PetSet’s efforts to end homelessness and alleviate suffering for the animals.
