Last year, we were able to raise over $140,000 for ICM and Boys and Girls Country with your help. All those that attended helped to continue our mission of supporting local and international organizations that shelter children. This year, we will enjoy a Mardi Gras themed evening with a fun cocktail hour where you’ll be wowed by our second line, incredible silent and live auction items that you won’t want to miss out on, a seated dinner with delectable wine pairings, presentations by Boys and Girls Country and ICM, entertainment that we won’t reveal yet and a DJ to dance the night away!

ICM's mission is to build churches/Hope Centers within walking distance of every man, woman, and child in our lifetime. A Hope Center provides children and adults with a safe place during the day to get food, education, possible medical treatment, spiritual guidance, and vocational training. These Hope Centers become a much-needed lifeline to help break cultural cycles which place children at risk.

Boys and Girls Country, located in Northwest Houston, provides a Christian home for more than 100 children and young adults whose families are in crisis. The mission is to raise these children to become self-sustaining and contributing adults by nurturing and loving them.
