Each year, HAPS holds an Annual Awards Gala to honor those who have made a significant impact in the Parkinson's community. This year's event, the 2017 Annual Awards Gala, Changing the Face of Parkinson's, was chaired by Hala & Joe Ahmad along with Young Professional Chairs Izzy & John Schulte on Sunday, November 5th at the Hilton Houston Post Oak. This special evening included awards presented to Diane Rehm, World Parkinson Coalition and Robert Flatt.
The event, attended by over 300 guests, raised awareness and generated critical funds to help further the mission of the only Parkinson’s organization in the greater Houston area that offers vital comprehensive programs to help thousands of families manage the daily challenges brought on by this progressive disease. For forty-three years, HAPS has improved the lives of those affected through crucial services free of charge that support long-term disease management.
Special thanks to our media sponsor Houston Public Media.
