The young professional set showed up in full force to kick off Young Texans Against Cancer’s annual BubblyQ.
THE PARTY Ahead of the 11th annual BubblyQ, Young Texans Against Cancer threw a summer soiree with chef Dean Fearing in the courtyard of Hotel Crescent Court. The largest fundraiser for YTAC Dallas, BubblyQ supports local cancer initiatives from Leukemia Texas to Heroes for Children. THE GUESTS As co-chairs, Dallas social butterflies Vodi Cook and Heather Winn helped draw in a crowd of nearly 300. Silent auction chairs Mallory Brito and Leila Bergquist, along with operations chair Melanie Carroll and board members Phuong Tran and Navid Razi mingled with guests as the sun set. Merritt Beck, Chris Stewart, Marcus Knowles and Scott Rubio were just a few faces spotted in the spirited crowd. THE HIGHLIGHTS DJ Girlbot provided the soundtrack to a scene of partygoers sipping wine and noshing on tuna tataki and sushi, all compliments of Nobu. If this was just the kickoff, we can’t wait for the main event! -Krystal Sarna
