What: Work of HeART: a Night of Art, Beauty, and Fashion

Where: Samuel Lynne Galleries

The 411: Dozens of guests flooded the Design District gallery for a fashionable and fun evening benefiting Texas Lawyers for Children. Attendees mixed and mingled while enjoying appetizers by EAT Custom Catering and exploring various vendors from the likes of Elle Marie Beauty, Skin Snob, On the Rocks, Jacob Tuygyn, and more.

The highlight of the evening came when artist and the gallery's co-owner, JD Miller, live painted to the audience's thrill and delight. Of course, 100 percent of the proceeds went to the cause, and the gallery also offered 10 percent in donations for any additional art sales that evening.

Texas Lawyers for Children, which has the mission to protect abused and neglected children from further harm by improving outcomes in the court cases that determine their future, raised over $16,000 at the event.
