Houston’s unpredictable weather didn’t dampen the holiday spirit of the 150 revelers who came out to mix and mingle at Holiday SCHMOOZE. Leading the helm of this soiree were co-chairs Mary Patton and Milton Townsend, with Townsend graciously opened his beautifully decorated home for this magical event benefiting The Jackson Hicks Endowed Fund for the Awareness, Prevention, and Treatment of HIV/AIDS at Legacy Community Health.
The glam squad crowd was treated to a winter wonderland with holiday trees decorated by the co-chair duo, and spectacular floral arrangements that were created by Rebekah Johnson of Bergner & Johnson Design. The festive crowd were greeted to flavorful cocktails upon arrival and enjoyed light bites created by Jackson and Company. Bonnie and Rob Lloyd of Lloyd Wines graciously provided flavorful selections from their winery.
