What: A sporty gathering of casual dog-loving football fans alongside their respective furr-ever pals to raise funds and awareness for Friends for Life, a no-kill animal adoption and rescue operation.
Where: Winston's on Washington
The 411: It may have not been a winning day for the Houston Texans on Sunday, but we bet the crew of sports-clad adoptable doggies that wagged their tails felt like champs just being part of the party scene, hoping to make a connection and find a home. Guests of Friends for Life's "Texans TAILgate" social enjoyed brunch and cocktails and tried their luck at a raffle that included an autographed Andre Johnson jersey, an autographed Whitney Mercilus hat and a football fan package. The 22-foot outdoor projection to watch the game? Bonus.
