On Thursday, December 6, 2018, PASH will host a luncheon for its members and guests to celebrate the Holiday Season. In the spirit of giving and in keeping with our established tradition, we will be collecting gifts for the homeless of Houston. Attendees are asked to share their holiday spirit by bringing a new unwrapped gift and / or wrapping materials (see SOH Holiday Needs List ideas below). Please contact Wally Trevino 832 443-6913, or any Board Member for any questions. The Star of Hope (SOH) will be distributing these gifts to the children as well as to their parents whom are housed at their Houston area facilities.

This year we are fortunate to have as entertainment the MistleTone Holiday Carolers performing as a quartet. They are a professional caroling troupe and will help to set the mood for the occasion.
