F estari for Men's beloved big-ticket charity evening, Una Notte in Italia, had a new venue — the Royal Sonesta — but its soul remains in Italy. The benefit for Bo's Place is now of legal age, and for nearly 20 years its M.O. has not changed: dressing up the who's who of local male celebs and men of note in Festari fashions and letting them strut the catwalk. Chair Eloise Frischkorn Bauer and honorary chair Debbie Festari reached deep into their address books for an A-list cast, headlined by Houston Texans defensive stalwart Kareem Jackson, Garrett Graham, and running back and former LSU star Alfred Blue, Andre Hal, as well as Dynamo forward Chandler Hoffman. Also taking the stage were Cheniere Energy bigwigs Chad Zamarin and Anatol Feygin; lawyers James Lassiter, Chad Pinkerton, and Travis Torrence (who did the Nae Nae down the runway to much applause); restaurant owner Charles Clark; and businessmen Ajay Khurana, Rocky Mafrige, Bill Toomey, and Ben Dugger. Rudy Festari outfitted the dapper gents, while DJ Senega kept the throng moving. More than $350,000 was raised for Bo's Place, which offers grief support to children and their families. First-stringers: Melissa and Michael Mithoff, Jenny and Chris Myers, Susan and Charlie Neuhaus, Alex and Brady Knight, Joella and Steve Mach, Tatiana and Bob Green, Tiffany and Randall Wong, and Ulises and Kara Kinder Vidal.
