You're Invited


We invite you to celebrate 30 years of hope for Houston's homeless children at the 30th Anniversary Emerald Ball on Friday, November 20th, at 6:30 p.m., at the gorgeous Post Oak Hotel. This year's theme, "Emerald Ball," highlights the individuals, families, and businesses in Houston who, over the past 30 years, through their time, donations, and support, have served the needs of our city. This year's event will be chaired by Kelly and Michael Boyd, and together, we can provide HOPE to the children at the Star of Hope Mission.


We are pleased to announce Donna Grehn as the 2020 Gala Honoree. Donna has been an advocate for homeless children, served on the Trees of Hope Board of Trustees, and dedicated the last 10 years to the children at Star of Hope through the Toy Store. Along with Honorary Chair Lynn Wyatt, will host an unforgettable night. 

Our emcee for the event is Courtney Zavala of KPRC 2.  You can catch Courtney weekdays on Houston Life, the show which provides an hour of daily news you can use segments focused on family, fun, and fashion, featuring cooking, local and national celebrity guests, and much more. It's your one-stop-shop for all things going on in and around the Houston area!  Entertainment for the night is DJ Senega.


Over 400 guests will gather to raise funds for homeless children living at Star of Hope, Houston’s largest agency serving the homeless. We hope you will join us! 

"Those who HOPE in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
