Each year, HAPS holds an Annual Awards Gala to honor those who have made a significant impact in the Parkinson's community. We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Annual Awards Gala, Changing the Face of Parkinson's, will be held Sunday, October 1st at 6pm at the Hilton Houston Post Oak. Chaired by Hala & Joe Ahmad along with Young Professional Chairs Izzy & John Schulte, this special evening will include an Awards Program, Dinner and Dancing. Honoree Diane Rehm will be a guest speaker and there will be a special VIP Reception with her at 5pm for Platinum and Gold Underwriters, and their guests, or with the additional purchase of a $100 ticket for those attending the gala.
This event will raise awareness and generate 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.
In this historic year as we pay tribute to the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Parkinson’s disease, it gives us tremendous pleasure to honor these outstanding groups and individuals.
