Join AVDA for its fun, lively and unique Home Safe Home Gala! Now in its 12th year, Home Safe Home remains one of Houston’s premier tasting events with creations by 12 local top chefs and a silent auction. Throughout the evening, guests will mingle and sample each chef’s pièce de résistance perfectly paired with a fine wine. Adding to the excitement of the evening, Kailee Wong, former Houston Texans linebacker and owner of The Athletic Room, will emcee.

During the event, AVDA will honor Bobbie Nau and Ronald D. Krist, both greatly respected for their extraordinary empathy for those in need. Two prestigious awards will be presented: AVDA’s Heart of Houston Award, recognizing Bobbie Nau for her exemplary service to Houston and its citizens through philanthropy and volunteerism, and The Joseph D. Jamail Award for Justice, honoring Ronald D. Krist.  An influential figure in the Texas legal community for more than 50 years, Mr. Krist has used his skills as a litigator to advocate on behalf of those in need. This award is presented annually to an exceptional individual who embodies “Joe Jamail’s fervent commitment to advocating for others.”

A portion of the proceeds from AVDA’s Home Safe Home Gala will support the AVDA Victim Relief Fund, providing emergency financial assistance to AVDA clients impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Because of your generous support, AVDA’s 2016 Home Safe Home Gala raised a gross total of $432,577 for victims of domestic abuse!
