Reliant Energy and Andre Johnson honored at our spring gala!
The Houston Area Women's Center took over 475 guests to the moon and back at its annual spring gala on Friday, April 17, 2015 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel! "Moonlight Soiree" was the theme for this year's event, as dazzling lights and blue velvet poured throughout the elegantly transformed ballroom. The successful event raised $600,000, which will further support the agency's ability to provide shelter, counseling and advocacy services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
