What: 'Shoes On, Pants Off” Cancer Below the Belt Fundraiser and Awareness Event. 

Where: Mezlan in The Galleria.

The scoop: Guests gathered at the specialty men's shoe store to support Cancer Below the Belt, an organization founded by interior designer Kelly Amen to raise awareness and reduce the stigma about prostate cancer. Amen, a prostate cancer survivor, says he is always looking for ways to put the "ease back in disease" and came up up the fun idea to launch a campaign for supporters to be photographed in their skivvies, with the hashtag #GetCaughtWithYourPantsDown.

Guests also sipped on prosecco and sampled chocolates while perusing the store, which was decorated with Amen's trademark KGA pillows.

Who: Seen in the crowd were Corey Scott, Landon Wasem, and Ernest Evans, who all got into the spirit of the occasion by dropping their pants to reveal orange underwear, Gina Mctoub, Bambi Hanna, Ashlee Arter, Austin McAteer, Mario Ayala, Laura Daley, Jeffrey Steinhardt, Darryl Anderson, Mark Baker, Harold Henry, Dottie Bourassa, Dawn Herring Gunther, Beth Cassidy, Jack Jordan, and Albert Wilson.
