Guests Celebrate in Honor of Northwest Assistance Ministries

May 17, 2017

Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) celebrated another successful Jeans & Jewels event with its revamped Beers & Cheers, A Toast to NAM event.

More than 100 guests gathered during a perfect Texas-summer day at Citation Oil & Gas on Thursday, May 11, 2016. Guests enjoyed sips, bites and a Thai-Mexican Fusion food truck by Pho-jita. The Mix Masters Band delighted attendees with a fun, musical atmosphere. Beers & Cheers, A Toast to NAM, raised more than $8,000 that will go into funding NAM’s programs and services.

“This party started as another way to connect with our supporters and to generate excitement leading up to Jeans & Jewels, A Texas Size-Party held in October each year,” explained Carole Little, NAM’s President and CEO. “I can’t stress enough how proud I am to see this network of supporters coming together for a shared belief and for their continued support of NAM’s mission. NAM’s greatest assets are our supportive donors and an exceptional volunteer base and I am truly thankful for a generous and giving community.”

Many thanks to this year’s Beers & Cheers sponsors: Brenda and Paul Anderson, Denise and Buddy Bolt, Courtney and David Cook, Susan and David Diehl, Darlis and Tom Fuller, Dana and Bill Hines, Pam and, Bob Hughes, Jayne and Matt Iverson, JeanneMarie and Ron Lesseraux, Reneé and Danny Rea, Cheryl and Bill Sessions, Lauren and Brian Temple, The Woodlands Waterway Marriott and 11 Below Brewing Company.
