West Houston Assistance Ministries presents Faith, Hope, and Love Benefit Luncheon
Every year at the Faith, Hope, and Love Benefit Luncheon, West Houston Assistance Ministries presents the Penrod Volunteer Award to a deserving volunteer who has shown dedication in service of the poor through WHAM.
This year, they will honor three volunteers: Loretta Haren, Alice Hastings-James, and Jim Kilmoyer, volunteers who have selflessly dedicated talent and hard work in the pantry, in Care Ministry and in the resale store.
In addition, the Community Builder Award will be presented this year to CenterPoint Energy, a leader striving to make a positive difference in the community through giving, volunteerism, and the support of programs promoting community vitality, education and local initiatives.
The Keynote Speaker this year is retired Emmy Award-winning reporter and television news anchor, Bill Balleza. A Houston icon, Balleza will share anecdotes and inspiring lessons from his almost 50 years in the news arena.
