Houston Grazing Tables set up a beautiful charcuterie board to complement apps courtesy of Masraff's, while oenophiles sipped selections from Wine by Haus of Cellars and 12 Fires Wine. Dessert bites were provided by Alice Blue.

In its 35 years, Victory has raised more than $60 million for cancer research, and it was recently announced that all proceeds from fundraising will be used exclusively for local initiatives. In the spring, the organization will host the first-ever Rally Ball with a theme of "Blazing for a Cure" at 713 Music Hall.
