What: A shopping benefit for the Lone Survivor Foundation

Where: I.W. Marks Jewelers

PC Moment: Former Navy SEAL, author of Lone Survivor and founder of the Lone Survivor Foundation Marcus Luttrell and his wife Melanie were honored guests when Joanna and Brad Marks welcomed a well-heeled clutch to the Bellaire jewelry store. Focus of the bejeweled evening was Seiko’s luxe watch collection.

The sleek collection includes men’s and women’s timepieces with the Presage collection starting at $525, the Coutura starting at $495, the Diamonds starting at $395, Prospex starting at $395, plus the high-end, limited edition King Seiko and the Astron.

In salute to the brand’s origin, Japanese whiskies were featured along with fragrant cigars, manly offerings reminding that Father’s Day was only days away. Party bites from Frankie B. Mandola’s Catering included prime rib sliders and fresh-shucked oysters presented to guests via a roving shucker.

A percentage from sales on this evening were earmarked for the foundation that provides specialized care for military veterans suffering from PTSD, chronic pain and traumatic brain injury.
