In between practices for Monday night's game against the San Diego Chargers, a beefy posse of Houston Texans galloped into a mighty mansion on River Oaks Boulevard in support of DePelchin Children's Center. And with good reason.

Texans COO Cal McNair and wife Hannah are cochairs, along with Abbi and Rob Antablin, of DePelchin's Nov. 15 gala at Reliant Stadium and Texans owner Bob McNair and wife Janice are honorary chairs.

More than 100 guests turned out in support of the non-profit that is the area’s largest provider of children’s mental health, foster care and adoption services. Among the gridiron masters in their party clothes were Texans Matt Schaub, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and Brian Cushing. Few could have been happier with the turnout than DePelchin president and CEO Jenifer Jarriel.

Also in the mix were Joanna and Brad Marks of I.W. Marks, which donated an Omega Constellation watch for the benefit's raffle.

Cheering on the Texans and DePelchin were guests including John Blaisdell, Anne and Charles Duncan, Rhonda Kubiak, Laurie Schaub, Sarah and Bill Hurt, Holly Smith and Austin Alvis, Devi and Duane Brown, Shiloh and Keana Keo, Amy Galbraith, Erika and Garrett Graham, Amanda and John Weeks, Shannon Dennison and Megan Cushing
