Our CultureMap Social series returns Thursday, July 20, and this time we've come up with a special theme for the young professionals happy hour. It's a Country Club party!

So put on your pearls, tennis skirts, polo shirts and pop that collar. Here are five great reasons you won't want to miss this summer party.

1. Enjoy a great view.
Be ready to mix and mingle on the rooftop deck at SkyHouse River Oaks, 2031 Westcreek Lane, from 6:30 - 9 pm. with great views of The Galleria/Post Oak area in an indoor-outdoor setting.

2. Consume some fancy food and drink.
Come hungry because there will be bites by Liberty Kitchen, in addition to drinks by Gentleman Jack whiskey, Deep Ellum Brewing Company, and Topo Chico. Plus, Popfancy will offer special treats.

3. Take part in fun games and shopping.
Play all sorts of games, from Bocce ball to mini golf, and shop for cool styles from Sid Mashburn and Ann Mashburn. (If you're still looking for something 'preppy chic' to wear to the party, head over to the River Oaks retailer at Westheimer and River Oaks Boulevard now and choose from the styles they've pulled perfect for the country club theme.)

4. Get pampered. 
The Argyle League and DryBar will be on hard to offer a quick hairstyle refresh for men and women.

5. Contribute to charity just by attending.
Tickets are $25 per person, and 100 percent of sales benefit Candlelighters Houston, which supports families facing childhood cancer.

So round up your friends, and RSVP now.
