To those who helped make Houston Children’s Charity 24th Annual Gala possible…
TO OUR GALA CHAIRS FRANCES AND TONY BUZBEE,
who met with us for many months to execute a meaningful and engaging event, we thank you. Your dedication and commitment to ensuring this night was a success means so much to us, especially all while planning a wedding and your new life together! Frances and Tony, you have helped tremendously to keep our programs funded and available for our special children who need it most. Goal exceeded.
TO OUR TITLE SPONSORS BMW OF WEST HOUSTON AND MOMENTUM BMW SOUTHWEST,
who jumped on board in the spirit of giving 13 years ago, we thank you. 13 years of providing a brand-new (and beautiful!) BMW vehicle for our live auction to raise funds is nothing short of astounding generosity. In a city with thousands of charities you can choose to support, we are overwhelmingly thankful for your dedication to Houston’s children who are depending on us for resources and assistance. Thank you Maria Moncada Alaoui (BMW of West Houston), and Tommy Kuranoff (Momentum BMW Southwest).
TO OUR GALA UNDERWRITERS AND GUESTS,
you came because you care about our mission and improving the quality of life of our special children. You aim to ensure that we continue providing assistance through beds, backpacks, clothing, joyful holidays, wheelchair-accessible vans, and most of all – hope – to children in Houston. YOU helped raise $2,800,000 for underprivileged, abused, and disabled children in Houston and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
TO OUR 75+ VOLUNTEERS,
who worked hard to create a memorable experience for our gala guests, we thank you. You placed more than 600 programs on each chair, set up 40+ auction items, ran many errands, assisted with contactless registration, and helped guests at their tables with anything they might have needed. More importantly, you provided compassion and excellence in your service while volunteering on a Friday night!
TO THOSE WHO CONTRIBUTED TO OUR LIVE AUCTION AND BIG BOARD,
Your donation was essential to the success of the night and goes a long way in supporting our mission. Your unique and one-of-a-kind items excited guests more than ever before and raised record-breaking numbers. You’re part of our community, our mission, our family, and we thank you for your commitment to the children of Houston.
Houston Children’s Charity Board of Directors,
Laura Ward, and Team
