Presenting Sponsor 


Bring Your Friends! Be a Table Captain

Build an unforgettable dinner experience by surrounding yourself with friends and family. As a Table Captain, you’ll get insider news about high-profile guests and speakers, fabulous auction items and other dinner details. HRC Houston will support you each step of the way, and we’ll celebrate your hard work with exclusive Table Captain events in the lead up to the dinner. Sign up when you purchase your ticket or email gala@hrchouston.org for more information.

This year, the Gala will be held at the brand-new Marriott Marquis in downtown Houston on April 1st, 2017. Becoming a table captain is easy, all you need to do is buy two tickets to the dinner and work to fill the other eight seats. We are currently offering early bird pricing until January 30th. If a table captain fills their table by then, they will receive 2 FREE VIP UPGRADES (a $200 value) which gives priority check-in and UNLIMITED OPEN BAR.
