Event Information

Join us as West Houston Assistance Ministries celebrates 35 years of serving families and individuals in need and pays tribute to three amazing individuals who have made a major impact on our success.

Our event chair for this year's event is Edna Renfrow-Brown. We will honor the late Peg Dudar, WHAM Founder, and the recipients of the inaugural Penrod Volunteer Award, Ruth Penrod and the late Van Penrod.  

Our Keynote Speaker is the Rev. Mark Brown, bringing us insight into his personal experience with the homeless, and his vision for the future.  Not only this, but you will enjoy a delightful performance by Virtuosi of Houston.

All proceeds go to WHAM operations and the services we offer to families in crisis. Thank you for your generosity.
