What: Party on the Patio benefiting the Texas Lyme Disease Association.

Where: On the Westheimer-facing patio of Tootsies in West Ave.

The scoop: Tiffany Masterson, founder of the wildly popular, Houston-based Drunk Elephant Skincare line, hosted the event along with Joanie Jacomini Herring, Beverly Jacomini and the Texas Lyme Disease Association's Libby Watts. A percentage of sales from the skincare line were earmarked for the non-profit, thus Tootsies dubbed the evening "the ultimate trunk show."

Speakers included Watts, who has suffered from the disease; Lafayette Herring; and lyme disease specialist Dr. George Allibone.

Before the serious business of the night, guests perused Tootsies' racks then moved outdoors where they swayed to the sounds of DJ Senega and sipped and noshed on treats from neighboring eatery Armandos.

Who: Cinda and Armando Palacios, Kara Smith, Katie and Stanton Scott, Amy Stephens, Meredith Grisebaum, Courtney Kobel, Kathy Masterson, Beth Black, William Heartsil, Dinah Lin and Rob Todd, Gretchen Hilyard, Douglas Glover, Mina Mann, Eric Watts, and Amanda Fox.
