We can’t wait to see you for Houston’s annual Victory event this year! We’re changing things up with a FunDay vs. a Champagne Brunch. Why? Because you asked for more networking and more time to socialize. Don’t worry, you’ll still have unlimited bubbles, plenty of food, a table, and a place to sit. And yes, dress brunch chic and make sure to look fabulous (business casual also works).
