This year's annual event, Eat, Drink, and Be Charitable, held on Sunday, October 17th at The Astorian, was a night to remember! Event Chairs Cliff Helmcamp and Jerry Jeanmard brought together an amazing group of generous people to support HAPS and extend our mission of service to the local community. Due to an overwhelming response, the event sold out weeks ahead of the date. The in-person event proved to be fun and spectacular.
Local favorite, Sally Edmundson, served as Mistress of Ceremonies while guests dined on delicious food, sipped delightful beverages and listened to the smooth sounds of Anthony Caceres. Key to the event's success was the generosity and charitable commitment to the cause felt by all of those who participated though underwritting, making in-kind donations, attending, or giving during the "paddles up" portion of the night. A hearty wine pull and glamorous raffle drawing, contributed to the fun of the evening. An exciting live auction left the winners feeling fantastic!
We are especially grateful to all those who believe in and support Houston Area Parkinson Society and who have made the commitment to being a part of the only resource in the Houston area to serve those with Parkinson's. Special thanks to Cliff Helmcamp and Jerry Jeanmard, Sally Edmundson, Gloria Hui, MD, Gail and Mike Hendryx, Mimi Swartz, Alison Cook, Blue Bell, Joy and Benjamin Warren, Martha Oti, Erick Sandlin, United Airlines, Tenenbaum, and The Tilman Fertitta Family.
