On to the next 50 years!
On September 25th, AMIGOS hosted a 50th Anniversary Gala in Houston, where we were founded in 1965. With over 340 in attendance, we had AMIGOS alumni and friends from every decade of our past 50 years. Throughout the night there was lively music, a colorful silent auction, and the excitement in the air was palpable with new connections and memories being made. Through everyone’s generous support, AMIGOS raised funds for 10 new financial assistance awards for our 2016 programs.
