First there was a swell Chris Shepherd-inspired dinner for the firm’s top real estate agents in the Sky Lounge of Market Square Tower. That was followed by a casino party in the tower ballroom with funds raised for A 2nd Cup, a nonprofit aiding survivors of human trafficking. Both events confirming that Compass is firmly planted in the Houston real estate landscape.

Noted from the get-go for its pampering of top agents, Compass treated its heavy hitters to a special five-course dinner direct from the talented hands of Shepherd‘s Georgia James Tavern team. The swank Sky Lounge of the 40-story apartment tower with its floor-to-ceiling windows afforded shimmering views of the downtown skyline for the lucky diners.

The guest list of real estate insiders expanded for the second half of this special evening when the doors opened on the Market Square Tower ballroom (yes, this apartment building has a ballroom among a dozen other unexpected amenities) for the casino-themed fundraiser. More than 200 cocktail-attired guests tried their hand at table games and strolled around the pool terrace which offers incredible views of the downtown skyline at night.

Special guest was Erica Raggett, founder and executive director of A 2nd Cup. She was joined by survivors of human trafficking who shared their dramatic and troubling stories.

The nonprofit has been serving survivors and working to help in ending human trafficking since 2012.  Actually, it is a coffee shop located in The Heights. It partners with local roasters and handcrafts its own fair trade syrups. But in addition to coffee, the low-key spot promotes its calling and mission to provide survivors with job skills.
