PC Moment: More than 150 millennials and friends turned out for the cocktail reception celebrating the second anniversary of the young professional group. The evening raised $6,000 for Houston Children’s Charity’s A Better Night’s Sleep Program, which provides beds and linens for children who otherwise would not have a bed to sleep in. The Chocolate Llama Cake Company made the adorbs birthday cake, sculpted like a child’s bedroom.

Headliners on the festive night were HYHCC founding chair Rachel Gorden, who passed the torch to incoming chair Alexis Peltier, and Youval Meicler. As the event sponsor and owner of Texas Mattress Makers, Meicler spoke to the gathering on the importance and value of HCC’s A Better Night’s Sleep endeavor. Since its inception in 2007, the program has delivered more than 27,000 beds to children in need.
