What: Una Notte in Italia, benefitting Bo’s Place and presented by Festari for Men.

Where: Royal Sonesta.

Who: Chair Eloise Frischkorn Bauer; honorary chair Debbie Festari and husband Rudy Festari, who took a bow on the runway for outfitting the dapper gents; 25 runway strutters including Cheniere execs Chad Zamarin and Anatol Feygin, attorneys Chad Pinkerton, James Lassiter, and Travis Torrence, who did the Nae Nae, Houston Texans players Kareem Jackson, Garrett Graham, Andre Hal and Alfred Blue, and Dynamo player Chandler Hoffman, and businessmen Bill Toomey and Rocky Mafrige; supporters Melissa and Michael Mithoff, Alexandra and Brady Knight, Jenny and Chris Myers, and Susan and Charlie Neuhaus.

PC Moment: The boys totally brought down the house for Bo’s Place, a bereavement center that offers grief support services to children and families. At this sold-out affair, more than 600 revelers turned out to cheer on philanthropic businessmen and athletes who rocked the runway in the name of charity. After the always-rousing show, the tres-chic crowd danced the night away to beats by DJ Senega and toasted with Circulo Tequila. A grand tour of Italy and a dinner with the Houston Texans raked in big numbers during the auction, tipping the total amount raised to more than $350,000 for Bo’s Place.
