Put On Your Red Shoes For A Good Cause
Elite philanthropists and socialites have merged forces for the 25th Anniversary of Houston Habitat for Humanity! Prominent names like Martin and Kelli Cohen Fein, Leela and Nat Krishnamurthy, Trini Mendenhall-Sosa and Frank Sosa and Anita and Gerald Smith have joined hands to Co-Chair the 25th Anniversary Gala “There’s No Place Like Home” RED SHOES Gala for the Houston Habitat For Humanity.
“The idea is to get-together a collaboration and celebrate the occasion and to raise much needed funding to continue the programs of Houston Habitat which build stronger families and thereby a stronger community for us all living here in the United States,” says Leela Krishnamurthy at our private intimate lunch meeting while sharing heart-warming stories.
In terms of ‘opening the doors to opportunity’, the evening will include an exhibit and silent auction of actual doors transformed into art by an impressive list of fifteen artists, (all of whom have roots to Houston) including: Spencer Anderson, Salli Babbitt, Kermit Eisenhut, Jackie Gendel, Angelbert Motoyer, Tra Slaughter and several others. There will be a live auction of the premier doors as well as a two-year lease of a 2012 3-Series BMW generously donated by Momentum BMW Southwest. Famed auctioneer, Vicki Vines, will conduct the auction and host of “Great Day Houston”, Ms. Deborah Duncan, will emcee the program. The Richard Brown Orchestra will provide entertainment. The evening calls for cocktail attire and RED SHOES because after all, there’s NO PLACE LIKE HOME!
Esteemed Honorees include: CHEVRON (Humanitarian Award), The Houston Bar Association (Carl Ulmand Lifetime Achievement Award), Wells Fargo Bank (Corporate Partner Award), InnerChange Freedom Initiative (Open Doors Award), Irene and Brian Binash (Builder’s Award) and The Kinkaid School (Future Builder’s Award).
Honorary Chairs include: Pastors Kirbyjon and Suzette Caldwell, Anthony Chase, Andrew Echols and Sonceria and Jodie Jiles.
So come out you people as the evening promises to be a true celebration of the great strides Houston Habitat for Humanity has made in providing affordable housing for low-income residents of Houston. Houston Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty by building affordable housing suitable for hardworking families. From thousands of applications, qualified family partners receive no-interest mortgages and may be eligible for down payment assistance.
