What: Launch of Young Houstonians for Houston Children's Charity.

Where: Kirby Ice House.

The scoop: More than 130 guests turned out to celebrate the new young professionals group that was formed to support the nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life for Greater Houston’s underprivileged, abused, and disabled children.

The YP group's co-founders Rachael Gordon and Alyx Haraway and Houston Children’s Charity’s marketing and communications director Caitlyn Pesl welcomed the crowd who enjoyed happy hour drink specials, a "selfie" photo booth, and opportunities for networking. Proceeds from entry tickets and a raffle for such items as a custom dog bed, gift cards to Landry's and Kirby Ice House, and tickets to an upcoming Astros-Yankees game brought in $5,000 for the organization.

Who: Seen in the crowd were Derrick Shore, Deborah Duncan, Hudson Hoosier, Blake Sanders, Mason McEntire, Maricella Reed, Calsie Boye, Nadia Hadri, Chad Johson, Tori Whitworth, Diego Lagos, Alexis Peltier, James Byrne, Roger Dayne, Victor Guajardo, Laura Miller, Rachel Brown, Sarah Gordon, Jose Calderon, Mackenzie Henbrock, Ainsley Tarver, Jenna Quinn, Mason Moss, Dee Brown, Angelica Luna, Jack Feigleson, and Amber Ivey.
