On Jan 18, Arnaldo Richards' Picos Restaurant opened its doors to welcome We Are Houston 5K runners and supporters representing Dress for Success Houston. With savory offerings from places such as Egghaus Gourmet, Hungry's Cafe, Monkey's Tail, Picos Restaurant, Nothing Bundt Cakes and River Oaks donuts, and beverages from Earthcraft Juicery, Katz Coffee, and cocktails from Tequila Herradura and El Jimador, attendees quickly re-energized for the day.
The third annual Brunch Bash saw over 160 foodies, including 40 Dress for Success Houston clients that completed the 5K, meeting their personal health and wellness goals. The organization's Run for a Reason campaign has been a tremendous success for the agency this year, raising over $68,000 to empower Houston-area women. Two-time presenting sponsor Christian Brothers Automotive played a key role in fundraising efforts, contributing $25,000 in support.
