Gala! HGST’s 35th Anniversary Coming Soon

Thirty-five years and going HGSTRONG is something to celebrate. We’re doing just that on Sunday, November 11, at the Power Center, located at 12401 South Post Oak Road in Houston, 77045. The 35th Anniversary Gala will begin at 5:00 p.m. with a silent auction. The dinner program starts at 6:00 p.m.

Headlining this grand event is guest speaker Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie, the 117th bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church, whose election in 2000 marked the first time in 213 years that a woman had obtained the Church’s level of Episcopal office. Currently, as the presiding prelate of the 10th Episcopal District, she provides leadership to all of the A.M.E. Churches in Texas.

We look forward to hearing from this most distinguished preacher and speaker who, among many other stellar accomplishments, has authored six books and was once named one of the 50 most powerful women religious leaders in the world.

The conversations to be had at this celebration—reflecting on the years past, anticipating the years ahead—are something we also look forward to!

Tickets for this event are no longer available. Thank you to everyone that purchased your tickets we look forward to celebrating with you on Sunday, November 11th.
