What: Kickoff for the fifth annual George Springer All-Star Bowling Benefit for SAY

Where: Ouzo Bay and Loch Bar

PC Moment: Supporters of SAY (The Stuttering Association for the Young) got a first look at the new River Oaks District restaurant duo and a first taste with generous samplings of Ouzo Bay’s Mediterranean mezas including lamb meatballs with feta and tomato sauce, spanakopita and charcoal-grilled octopus and samplings of  Loch Bar’s raw oysters, tuna pokes and shrimp cocktails. The restaurants officially open on Monday, June 17. (For more on the food, read Annie Gallay’s PaperCity exclusive.)

Atlas Restaurant Group owners, brothers Alex Smith and Eric Smith were in from the hospitality group’s headquarters in Baltimore to launch the Houston version of their popular restaurant concepts. Director of operations for the restaurant duo, David Hall served as host to the tasty event.

Springer, the famed Houston Astros outfielder, is the national spokesperson for Camp SAY. He was resting up between games and did not make the party but promises all hands on deck for the bowling tournament which will be held on the evening of June 27 at Bowlmor Houston. Participants can expect to be joined by a host of Astros, other professional athletes and local celebrities. Proceeds will help send children who stutter to the George Springer MVP Camp SAY day camp in Houston and to Camp SAY, a summer camp program offering therapeutic programs.

PC Seen: All-Star Bowling chairs Lara Bell and Melissa DeAyala, junior chair Matthew DeAyala, honorary chair Carolyn Farb, Roseann Rogers, Christine and Steve Johnson, Sonia Soto, Blanca Beltran, Rob Todd, Grace Saragusa, Cheryl Byington, Rod Windham, Deborah Elias, Juan Beltran, Dawn Gunther and Megan Cardet.
