The popular upscale men’s boutique Festari for Men kicked off the holiday season as promised with fashion, food and fun! The invitation only soiree hosted by owners Rudy and Debbie Festari had a lively, fashionable crowd of VIP clients and friends who shopped for a good cause with a portion of proceeds designated for the Houston Area Women’s Center. The charity was the recent beneficiary of the couple’s annual Una Notte in Italia gala and the night was also a toast to the men who walked the runway for the event. Guests enjoyed a fabulous menu of delectable bites provided by neighboring and popular eatery La Table restaurant! For the ladies in the crowd there was fabulous jewelry from Urban Rocks by Kym Jackson along with elegant faux and fur wraps by Cindy Mormino’s Wolf Creek Ranch Collectables. The festivities carried on through the night and the holiday spirit was in full swing! Guests in the crowd included Melissa and Michael Mithoff, Rachel and Jeff Bagwell, Brigitte and Bashar Kalai, Duyen and Marc Huynh, Tatiana and Bob Green, Hollie and James Dorsett, Suzette and Darrell Betts, Niki and James Lassiter, Kristy Phillips and Rob Taylor, Jennifer Pinkerton, Courtney Hopson, Neal Hamil, Dr. Roland Maldonado, Ceron, and Ed Finger to name a few. Also, popular Houston Texans player Whitney Mercilus stopped by to enjoy the fun and he recently designated Festari for Men as a drop off site for his Holiday Toy Drive for the WithMerci Foundation!
