What: The Menil Collection's eighth annual Children's Halloween Costume Party.

Where: Due to rain moved from Menil Park into Richmond Hall.

The 411: Co-chairs Kelli and Eddy Blanton, Tricia and David Dewhurst, Michelle and Jeff Foutch and Millette and Haag Sherman dressed their youngsters in costumes for the party that raised $115,000, not bad for a Sunday afternoon. Jackson and Co. provided the party fare for appetites stimulated by the various children's activities. Some 400 partygoers turned out for the few tricks and loads of treats.

Who: Escorting their youngsters were Heidi and Marcus Smith, Marita Fairbanks, Cora Bess Meyer, Lisa Sacaris, Isabel David, Sarah Underwood and Jocelyn Simpson.
