What: Hearts, Hugs and Heroes. . .  a Sweetheart of a Celebration

Where: The Designer Rotunda at Saks Fifth Avenue

PC Moment: Few would disagree that Lance McCullers Jr. is one of the most handsome Houston Astros. The group of ladies gathered at Saks Fifth Avenue for an afternoon fête benefiting the Mission of Yahweh would wager that he is also the most congenial. After all, McCullers posed and posed and posed for photos with the throng of 100 or so.

The Astros pitcher was one of the five honored at the 13th Houston Sweethearts Tea along with Elsie Eckert, Scott Evans, Stacey Lindseth and McCullers’ glam wife Kara, though she could no make the event. Kara McCullers was home tending to the couple’s new baby girl Isla Graye, who was born in early January.

The Houston Sweetheart Awards was created by co-hosts Anne Carl, Deborah Duncan, Sylvia Forsythe, Kim Moody, Warner Roberts and Alicia Smith “with the sole purpose in mind to say we love and appreciate you to those in our community who are always open to serve others. Those who serve the community with their time, talent, energy, creativity, resources and most importantly with their love.”

Joining the program was Duncan, who introduced the honorees; Saks vice president and GM Heidi Parkhurst Turney, who allowed that her rapturous smile was due to her recent marriage to Barry Turney; and Roberts who spoke on the Mission of Yahweh’s role in providing housing and hope for homeless women and their children.

It was an afternoon of air kisses, hugs, champagne, delightful bites and blinky rings for all who made a donation to the mission of Yahweh.
