What: Cancer Below the Belt benefit. (Check out the website for panties down photos.)

Where: Ken Kehoe Showroom in Houston Design Center.

The 411: Founded by interior designer and artist Kelly Gale Amen, prostate cancer survivor, to bring awareness to cancers that occur "below the belt," the event had a special admission enticement — $20 if you dropped your pants, $100 if you didn't. It was all in good fun as guests embraced the importance of early detection of a variety of cancers that are often kept in the dark.

Models from Neil Hamil Agency mingled through the gathering dropping their pants and encouraging others to join the party fun. To encourage discussion on the disease, cards were handed out with assorted types of cancers printed on them with recipients expected to share their stories of cancer, early detection, intervention and awareness.
