Janna Eastwood, Marc Baca, and Kate Baca (pictured, from left) enjoyed the All That Glitters is Gold gala benefitting the Lupus Foundation of America, Texas Gulf Coast Chapter. Marc, who lost his mother to lupus, chaired the event at the Post Oak Hotel. Guests included advocates, “Lupus Warriors”, and friends of the foundation who gathered to celebrate the progress of the chapter and encourage the community to continue the fight against the autoimmune disease. Cheryl Yetz, a Lupus Warrior who has single-handedly raised more than $100,000 for the chapter, was the evening’s honoree, and Shannon Buggs from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Office of Complete Communities declared Sept. 17 as Lupus Awareness Day.
