Houston athletes and philanthropic faces wore blue at Hotel ZaZa to celebrate the commencement of men’s health month, which brings awareness to preventable health problems while promoting early detection and treatment. Blue Cure’s founder and prez Gabe Canales teamed up with anchorwoman Lilly Lang for the second annual benefit, which raised funds for the nonprofit’s mission of curing prostate cancer through research as well as educational outreach. Revelers sipped azure-hued mojitos and sampled bites crafted by ZaZa’s Monarch restaurant top toque Jonathan Jones. Blue notes: Texan defensive great J.J. Watt, Duane Brown, Carolyn Farb, Jared Lang, Jackie Terrell, Jennifer Molina, Texan Owen Daniels, Peter Brown, and Olympic gold medalist Steven Lopez.
