Casa de Esperanza presents Building Hope for Children Gala
The annual Building Hope for Children Gala has benefited Casa de Esperanza for over 30 years. Casa de Esperanza remains a pillar of hope for local Houston-area children impacted by abuse, neglect, homelessness, and substance abuse and for their families who look to them for hope for a better future. The 2021 Gala will be co-chaired by Collier & Richard Blades and Jacquelyn & Collin Cox,
While much remains uncertain regarding event during COVID-19, Casa de Esperanza is pressing ahead to plan a special evening honoring Dr. Shannon Hayes, Dr. Kay Motil, and Dr. Marilyn Wilking. Each has served the children and staff of Casa de Esperanza faithfully over the years, providing pediatric services to their children, many of whom enter our program behind on immunizations or have never even seen a doctor. These dedicated community heroes have also provided much needed guidance to the organization and have been instrumental in Casa de Esperanza’s ability to safely care for children and keep staff healthy during COVID.
Casa de Esperanza does not charge for any of its services and does not receive government funding; therefore, it depends on the generosity of the community for continued support and growth. The success of this event has never been more important to ensure the safety and health of children in our community.
