As you may have already seen, Houston NACE member Clara Hough started a Go Fund Me page to help out  #HurricaneHarvey victims. Here is a message from her:

As many of you know I took the initiative to start a Go Fund Me page that will be benefiting Event Professionals who have suffered losses in their homes and businesses due to Hurricane Harvey.  Many of you guys have already made personal donations as well as larger donations on behalf of the entire chapter and I want you all to know that I appreciate each and every single penny that has come in.  Our initial goal was $5,000, then $8,000 and I have, since this morning,  increased it to $12,000.  I also want to thank those of you who have reached out and are putting together fundraisers and/or collecting items to send to Houston.  I honestly have no words to describe the outpour of support that we have seen the last few days.  

We will mention this at the meeting if you feel moved to donate. If you want to donate now, here is the link: https://www.gofundme.com/eventprofessionalsrelieffund

Our hearts are with Houston and the other Gulf Coast cties affected by this disaster.

Our Cause of the Quarter is Austin Empty Bowl Project

In an effort to help out with the local food drive they threw, decorated and fired 120 bowls. The school’s staff was invited to the cafeteria to select a bowl and enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread. John and his wife, Lisa Blackburn, talked to the staff about hunger in their community, thanked them for their cash donations and then asked them to take their bowls home with them as a reminder of those with empty bowls. There are now “Empty Bowls” projects all over the world.

The Austin Empty Bowl Project (AEBP) was the first of its kind in Texas, founded in 1997 by Kit Adams, the owner of ClayWays Pottery Studio & Gallery. Each year, AEBP has grown in participation by both donors and attendees and, with the help of our generous community, they have raised more than $900,000.
