What: Ellevate Network Holiday Party.

Where: J.McLauglin boutique in River Oaks Shopping Center

The scoop: Giving meaning to the creed “Invest In Women," members and guests of the Ellevate Network Houston Chapter joined forces to assemble and wrap gift baskets containing beauty and self-care items for the 50 residents of The Women’s Home.  The facility offers homeless women, many dealing with substance abuse and mental illness, a home and a model of care called Whole Life.

Brasserie 19 provided party food and drink while the ladies, most young professionals, paid it forward during the holiday season.

Who: Nancy Golden, Shushana Castle, Kim Padgett, Judy Anderson, Jana Houston, Heidi Seprun, Claudia Sierra, Leela Madden, and Ellevate board members Mathilde Leary, Jessica Nicolayevsky, Bianca Ferrer, Mariam Jacob, Luanne Jones, and chapter president Jennifer Roosth.
