Celebrated at Houston Urban League’s 50th Anniversary gala. The night was filled honoring amazing people who have made a difference in their local communities. We had the honor of meeting Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. This will truly be a night to remember.
When you want good things to happen around you try surrounding yourself with positive people who are willing to help others. I did not know much about the Houston Area Urban League until I googled them earlier this week and after I had a conversation over dinner tonight with a person nice enough to sell me their last ticket when the HAUL gala was sold out. It was a very nice event. There were a lot of interesting people who had very inspirational testimonies to give. I met some people I expect to be able to work with in the future. On another note I killed it on the silent auction(again) except for that Doc Holliday picture I wanted. I think Johnny Ringo outbid me by a dollar. Seriously one dollar. #fundraisers#haulgala#houstonareaurbanleague #welcometohtown#urbanleague#economics #civilrights#thefuninsurancecompany #moremarketing#constructivecreaticism
