When you arrive, please go to our Will Call Table (located at the entrance facing McDuffie Street) to pick up your tickets. If you would like to have your tickets in hand before the event, you are welcome to drop by our administrative offices anytime this week between 8:00 am and 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. We are located at 607 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX 77006. Just let our receptionist know that you’re there to pick up tickets for the Crawfish Boil, and she will be happy to assist you.



Parking in Houston is crazy, right?  Parking in Montrose can be even crazier!! There is limited parking available in the neighborhood surrounding West Alabama. Many streets only allow parking on one side of the street, so please take notice of street signs when parking.  If you don’t want the hassle of parking, we encourage you to carpool or catch a ride with a great service like Uber.

Triumph Luncheon Wrap-Up

Our first ever Triumph luncheon was held on Friday, November 18 at the Royal Sonesta and indeed was a triumph!  520 guests dined on a tasty fall meal in the great company of the many friends and supporters who turned out to celebrate the mission of The Women’s Home, pay tribute to our distinguished honorees and be mesmerized by the keynote speaker, Amanda Lindhout.  Most importantly, those in attendance raised a record-breaking $357,000 to forward the work of their beloved organization.  Highlights included a stunning solo by singer Kenneth Gayle, a moving and funny speech by Lifetime Achievement honorée, Diane Riley and the beautiful story of survival and forgiveness delivered by Amanda Lindhout.

In addition to Diane, other honorees included, Bank of America represented by David Ruiz for corporate community support; long-time board member, Jackie Phillips for leadership; and Ashley Brown Ruiz for program excellence.  Each received a stunning glass award as they took to the stage for their ovations.

Kudos to chairs Donae Chramosta, Kristen McDaniel, Karen Redden and Jo Reid for a beautifully choreographed event from start to finish.  Each gave their special touch to the event and drove home a grand success.

Although every single gift made this success possible, please refer to the listing below for recognition of underwriters for the event.
