Gay Houston didn't let a little cold weather stand in the way of kicking off the Bunnies on the Bayou social season on Sunday. Hundreds partied at F Bar for Snow Bunnies.

It is, after all, a season of parties with a purpose. The non-profit is raising funds for 22 LGBT, HIV and arts agencies and programs in 2016. They were off to a strong start on Sunday, as hundreds hit F Bar for the event that included DJ Joe Ross and a host of other special guests and surprises.

The event is the first in a series to build up to the ablicious main spectacle, the outdoor cocktail party Bunnies on the Bayou 37 set for March 27. Last year, the organization dished out $121,000 to 15 HIV, LGBT and arts agencies.

Next up is Lady Bunnies on Feb. 20, followed by the organization's VIP Party on Feb. 28.
