H-Town Throw Down Recap

On Thursday, November 16, more than 200 young professionals converged in Hermann Park dressed in Houston-inspired attire to celebrate The H in all its glory for Urban Green’s H-Town Throw Down. Thanks to the H-Town hustle of event chairs Emily Anderson, Stacy Leonard, Nick Scurfield, and Mitch Zlotnik the event raised nearly $19,000, which will benefit Hermann Park Conservancy’s mission to improve and protect Hermann Park – today and for generations to come. 

Guests enjoyed an eclectic smorgasbord with bites and sweets from Américas, Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys, Butter & Company Catering, Cafe Piquet, FM Kitchen & Bar, La Mexicana, Raising Cane’s, Spanky’s Pizza, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Steel City Pops, and Willow’s Texas BBQ. Houston-Inspired cocktails also flowed from Bayou Rum, Bosscat Kitchen + Libations, Deep Eddy Vodka, ROXOR Gin, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, and TX Whiskey.
