In 1988, City House opened its doors as a six-bed shelter. Today, 30 years later, City House has grown into a four-home, 48-beds, multi-faceted agency that provides residential and non-residential services to more than 500 children, young adults and their families each year.

In honor of their 30th anniversary, City House partnered with Plano Profile to host a party.

Hosted at Shinola Detroit/Filson in downtown Plano–recently ordained as “The coolest brand in America” by Adweek–guests mingled among journals bound in soft leather, bicycles, watches and the brand’s newest product line: high-end headphones.

Guests enjoyed craft beers courtesy of Nine Band Brewing Co., a wine selection from Republic National Distributors, and yummy bites catered by Urban Crust/Urban Rio.

Meanwhile, the festivities continued outside on the bocce ball lawn where two coolers generously donated by Ryan Bertolino of Event Mechanics made the hot August night feel much cooler.

As part of the event, City House hosted a raffle featuring two grand prizes: a Shinola Spending Spree and Texas Rangers tickets. The lucky winners are: 3233659709 and 5448466, respectively. City House will be contacting the winners.
