On May 17, 2021, Leon’s Lounge was the site of a lively viewing party for Bravo’s popular Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Croatia. Hosted by the historic speakeasy’s owner, Scarlett Yarborough, the event benefited sea and land animals. Jacqueline Smooke, Joan Lebow, and Tracy Faulkner chaired the nautical-themed soirée. Among the celebrity guests were Houston’s own Erica and Cindi Rose and celebrity chef Natasha de Bourg who was flown in from Trinidad for the event by the Rose’s. Erica is a former cast member of The Bachelor and a current cast member of Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Croatia along with Natasha, and Cindi is a former cast member of Married to Medicine.
While sipping signature cocktails and nibbling beautiful bites, partygoers dressed in their seafaring and mermaid best-enjoyed music provided by Eric Kaposta. Tables were topped with gorgeous centerpieces from Lexis Florist and decked out with nautical swag provided by Cindi.
Over 40 unique raffle items were available to the delight of over 100 participants.
