Compass and Moeller’s Team Up for Sweet Fundraiser

WHILE MANY HOUSTONIANS — and their pipes— have recovered from last month's historic freeze, still others are without water, and organizations like the Houston Food Bank are still recovering and replenishing their inventory.

Restaurants and other local businesses are thinking of creative ways to help. Compass Real Estate and Moeller's Bakery have teamed up for the Cookies for a Cause initiative throughout March. Purchase adorably delicious blue heart-shaped cookies from the famous, 91-year-old Bellaire bakery, and $1 from every dozen sold goes to the Houston Food Bank. The goal is to raise $50,000, and nearly $20,000 has already been generated. Additional donations can be made here.

This fundraiser follows Compass' support of Feed the Front Line last year at the onset of Covid. Agents raised $40,000 to provide meals for healthcare and essential workers, and blue ribbons were tied on trees to encourage Houstonians throughout the trying time.

SOUTH FLORIDA-BASED Italian shoe line Concetto Limone will make its Texas debut at a cocktail reception at Valobra Master Jewelers (2150 Westheimer Rd.) on Thursday, April 29 from 5-7pm. The evening of "All Things Italian" will transport guests immediately to the coast of southern Italian as they sip on Italian wines, Aperol Spritzes, Negronis and Limoncellos while feasting on an assortment of Italian hors d'oeuvres from Houston's beloved Tony's. Invited guests will have the first glance in Texas on the Concetto Limone line and the opportunity to purchase unisex styles on Thursday evening and all day Friday at a trunk show at Valobra.
