We held our 29th Annual Northwest Houston Chapter Banquet Fundraiser in August at Shirley Acres. A new venue which turned out to be a terrific place. Great food and fun was had by all and we want to thank our sponsors for all of their donations. A great job by all of the directors. A huge thank you to our Gold Sponsor – Houston Distributing. As well as our Silver Sponsor – Bluewater Seafood, Keyera Energy, Academy Sports + Outdoors and John Eagle Honda.com. Thank you to everyone who sponsored or donated to our event.
