A massive air-conditioned, carpeted tent erected by Event Rental on the Heart Hospital’s grounds housed patrons of the Heart Ball benefitting the American Heart Association. After silent and live auctions, Magnolia provided the entertainment and Abacus the cuisine. Guest of honor Ryler Mahler stole the show in his adorable tux.

Guests gathered on the rooftop of the Burdin Riehl Parking Garage for Boil & Oil, the Oil Center’s annual block party. Oil Center merchants, professionals, patrons and friends enjoyed delicious crawfish boiled to perfection by Mike Hefner. Sponsors included Cox, The Heymann Foundation, Travis Technology Center, Party Central and LGMC.
