I wrote about it on Sunday, but wanted to post more pics from the 8th annual Equality Brunch. And yes, I was still shaking off the jet lag when I walked into the venue.
We had a few of our Houston political peeps there like CM Robert Gallegos and CM Mike Laster, TX state Senator Sylvia Garcia, Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen, Judge Maria T. Jackson, former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia and candidates for various offices in the room like Harris County DA candidate Kim Ogg, Harris County Sheriff candidate and former CM Ed Gonzales, judicial candidate Ramona Franklin and Harris County Commissioner's Court candidate Jenifer Rene Pool.
The other awards presented on Sunday and the deserving folks who received them were:
Eleanor Tinsley Award
Don Hrachovy Award
Melanie Espinosa Pang
Tim Brookover Award
The Tony and Bruce Award
It was a wonderful event across the board. Capacity crowd, amazing venue, delicious food, and most importantly, the fundraising target of $10,000 was hit. That money will help get those Caucus endorsement cards out in time for early voting that's starting on October 24.
This year's edition of the Equality Brunch set the bar high for future ones, and enjoyed being there for it.
