There are so many worthy causes, both local and national, trying to help veterans. While some focus on the mental and physical needs of those who have served in the U.S. military, the Housing Crisis Center has been working with the issue of homelessness among veterans through its Programs Serving Primarily Veterans. According to HCC Executive Director Sherri Ansley, “Texas has the fourth highest number of homeless veterans.”
To take advantage of November’s Veterans’ Day activities, HCC is holding its 2017 Patriot Party — Colors of Courage — on Friday, November 3. Event Co-Chairs Laura and Dennis Moon have arranged to have Connie and Denny Carreker as their honorary co-chairs.
They’ve also moved the dancing, dining and fundraising to the George W. Bush Institute.
After you get your tickets and/or sponsorship package, go shopping for something reddish, white-ish or blue. This event is just made for patriotic colors from diamonds to neckties.
