“Northern Lights Starry Nights” was the theme for the ABC/13 Women of Distinction Winter Ball 2011. It was a breathtaking evening as women swayed in their lavish evening gowns at the Hilton Americas Downtown Houston on January 22, 2011.
Eleven outstanding community volunteers were named ABC/13 Women of Distinction and Ambassador for the 2011 Winter Ball, benefiting the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) Houston Gulf Coast / South Texas Chapter.
