HOUSTON - Houston Greeters hosted the Mayor’s Memorabilia Gala on Thursday, October 17 at the Julia Ideson Library in downtown Houston. Attendees were given the opportunity to own pieces of Houston history, donated from Mayor Annise Parker’s private collection.
The fundraising event included live music, drinks and appetizers along with both a silent and live auction. In addition to the memorabilia, there was also dinner with the Mayor, the Indian Consul General and the Sri Lankan Consul General up for bid.
“Houston Greeters is the only organization whose sole purpose is to promote our great city and its cultural diversity,” said Gordon Quan, Chairman of Houston Greeters. Mayor Parker serves as the honorary chair of the Houston’s Greeters, a local arm of a Global Greeter Network currently in 15 countries. Quan states, “This Mayor’s Memorabilia Gala is a vital fundraiser that will enable us to continue our efforts to showcase where Houston has been, where we are going, and how we are making a difference.”
All proceeds benefit Houston Greeters; a 501 (c ) 3 nonprofit organization which promotes a cross-cultural understanding of Houston’s diverse communities.
