Hundreds of Houston’s young professionals mingled amongst some of the most eclectic artwork in the city in late September.
The two-hour “New, Now, Next Generation” social on September 26 at Gremillion & Co. Fine Art Gallery in Rice Village celebrated the young professionals from many of the area’s non-profit and charity organizations.
“We really wanted to recognize the great work of our young and up-and-coming professionals in the area,” says publisher Scott Evans.
“Houston is unique in the sense we have such great numbers of dedicated and involved young people in their 20’s and 30’s who truly give back to the community.”
The lineup of partners for the event was quite impressive. Rice Village’s Gremillion & Co. Fine Art Gallery hosted the attendees in their two-story Annex building and Sculpture Garden, allowing the guests to mix and mingle among some truly unique and fantastic art pieces. An abundance and variety of hors d’oeuvres from Benjy’s, Sushic, Rosemary’s Catering, and Latin Bites enticed and thrilled even the most fickle of palates.
Two full bars manned by Capitol Beverage served delicious concoctions featuring Beam Global’s Basil Hayden Bourbon and Skinny Girl Vodka. Bud Light and wine was generously provided by Silver Eagle Distributors and Barefoot respectively. Additionally, the second floor of the Annex Building featured perhaps the most eclectic dessert spread ranging from For Heaven’s Cake signature cake pops, to delicious treats from Mr. French’s Gourmet Bakery and Jillian & Co.
Awesome Music Entertainment’s DJ, Sam Reyes, amplified the mood with his up-tempo lounge fusion mix. In keeping with our “sustainable” theme, Your Green 2 Go provided biodegradable sushi and appetizer plates. Our shutterbug, Anthony Rathbun Photography, captured nearly 100 photos of our guests enjoying the evening. Sovereign Services provided the valet services.
A raffle for jewelry, restaurant gift certificates, and even a stay at the Houstonian (among other items) took place with proceeds benefiting local charities.
The “New, Now, Next Generation” of Houston’s youthful do-gooders is already a force to be reckoned with, and this evening was all for them.
