Posted 7:16am on Wednesday, Oct. 09, 2013

DALLAS -- The sixth annual Bubbly Q event took place on Thursday night at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas in Uptown and if you were not one of the 460 beautiful people who filled Fearing's to capacity, it is safe to say that you missed out on one of the best scenes of the year in DFW.

Bubbly Q is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Dallas chapter of Young Texans Against Cancer. The YTAC was formed in 2001 in Houston by 44 founding members who either personally battled cancer or witnessed loved ones struggling with the illness. They created the organization to increase cancer awareness among 22-45 year olds. The Dallas chapter was formed in January 2008.

The big night allows guests to sample dishes from some of the top area restaurants while enjoying champagne, craft cocktails from Eddie 'Lucky' Campbell and music by DJ Jose G. The eats were provided by Bolsa, Boulevardier, Central Market, Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck, Komali/Salum, Lockhart Smokehouse, Neiman Marcus, Nobu, Pappa Bros. Steakhouse, Urban Taco and Fearing's. The sold-out event was co-chaired by Carrie Hanna and Holly Price. The Chef Chair was Dean Fearing.

The event kicked off around 7 p.m. with a line of Ranger Rovers, Cadillac Escalades, Lexus, Mercedes and Audis pouring out onto McKinnney Avenue. from the front drive of the luxury AAA Five Diamond hotel. The attendees included a who's who of Dallas trendsetters and some of the most beautiful women in North Texas, who all contributed to the 2013 event raising in excess of $132,000 for the YTAC and its 2013 beneficiaries.
