Faith In Practice 2017 Gala: If We Love...
More than 700 attend 2017 Gala: If We Love…
Thanks to each of you – more than 700 of you! – who gathered in Houston’s Westin Galleria ballroom on Thursday, October 26, to celebrate Faith In Practice and this year’s honorees, Dr. Fielding and Mrs. Flossie Fromberg and Dr. Sean and Mrs. Rachel Boutros.
It was a joy to be able to celebrate these individuals whose lives are rooted in God’s call. Mother Teresa said, “If we pray, we will believe; If we believe, we will love; If we love, we will serve.” The Frombergs and the Boutroses are the embodiment of this. Their lives are directed by their faith; their service is an outpouring of God’s love in them.
On Thursday night, we saw how your generosity and the generosity of Houston was a testament to love that knows no bounds, as our preliminary figures indicate that the event raised more than $840,000.
We are so grateful to all of you who made the event possible – those of you who volunteered, who attended the event, who bought tickets and tables, who shopped at the mercado, who donated prizes, who made a special gift, and who showed your support for our mission in Guatemala. We are especially grateful to our mercado chairs, Mr. Jim and Mrs. Lucy Parker, and this year’s gala chairs, Dr. Joseph R. and Mrs. Jennifer Cali and Mr. Curt and Mrs. Sharon Webb, without whose tireless efforts the evening would not have been possible.
If you were unable to attend the event, you can still make a donation to this life-changing medical mission.
