What: Beat the Blues benefiting Crisis Intervention of Houston.

Where: House of Blues.

The 411: One of the hippest and most fashionable group of Houstonians turned out for the inaugural benefit which combined Los Angeles comedian Raj Sharma, music by DJ Indo and Houston's first live auction fashion show, featuring BEAZ models on the runway in creations by Houston designers Natalie Harris of Damsel White Label, Lee Yates, Danny Nguyen, Shevron, Clarence Lee, Paola Contreras of Inclan Studios and Chester Paul Roberts.  

Event co-chair Rebecca Beazley welcomed the crowd, saluting Crisis Intervention as "the superheroes of the Houston community always staying in the shadows of our city without anyone knowing all they do for people in crisis.” The organization's services are in great demand during the holidays as people in crisis call the 24-hour Hotline or text the Teen Text line seeking help due to loneliness, family conflicts or loss of a loved one. Organizers came up with the idea for a holiday fundraiser to put a fun spin on raising awareness for a serious issue.

Who: Seen on the red carpet and inside at the event were Fashion Houston founder Jared Lang, who emceed the auction, event co-chair Eddie D, Ava Galindo, Luke Wright, Christopher Denman, Yvette Garvin, Stephen Prescott, Larry and Lisa Stokes, Farhan and Nadia Faiz, Leandra Taylor, Stephanie Becker and Kelsi Woods.
