What: VIP reception honoring Lee Hilling, chairman of the French Medical Institute for Children.

Where: The River Oaks home of French Consul General Sujiro Seam and Jane Seam.

The scoop: Hilling captivated guests with his talk on the collaboration between France and Afghanistan and between the Aga Khan Development Network and La Chaine de l'Espoir in establishing a children's non-profit hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan, where one child in 10 does not reach the age of five. He has written a book, A Place of Miracles, which covers the success of the program that he says has saved the lives of thousands of children.

Who: Sultana Mangalji, Murad Ajani, Michael Sabouni, Lina Sabouni, Joanne King Herring, Dr. Suleman Lalani, Megan Mollaei, Carmina Zamorano, Anika Jackson, Lisa and Michael Pearson, Mumtaz and Ashraf Ramji, Jill Thompson Shull, Parissa Mohajer, and Mahzad Mohajer.
