Revive to Survive Dinner Dance - August 10, 2013

“Revive to Survive” held its first major fundraiser on August 10, 2013 at the Houston City Club. Our Dinner Dance was a huge success, with many people joining us that night to come support our cause. Mayor of Houston Annise Parker joined us that evening as our Chief Guest, and shared her jubilation and thoughts about our cause. The people in attendance were further informed about the goals and progress of “Revive to Survive,” and were later on treated to dinner and live music. The Silent Auction was also a huge hit, seeing off many of the items we had placed for bidding. Altogether, the evening was a huge success, and a big step for our organization, as we were able to raise 30,000 in profits for the children at the National Cancer Care Institute. 

While this was a monumental achievement for us, we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish this without all the help and support we received from everyone involved in our project. We would like to thank all our sponsors and donors, as well as all the people who helped and participated with our event. We appreciate everything you have done for us to make our event a reality, and the children being benefitted will appreciate your help even more. So once again, thank you all for your support, and we hope you will join us again in the future to help the children in need.
