The Salvation Army of Greater Houston, with special guest Wanda Durant, hosted its 22nd annual luncheon at the River Oaks Country Club. The luncheon, chaired by Nathalie and Charles Roff, drew 376 guests and raised more than $576,000 in support of the organization’s housing, emergency shelter, rehabilitation, disaster relief, social services and Christmas assistance programs. Charles Roff gave remarks honoring his parents Ann and J. Hugh Roff, Jr. for their years of service to Salvation Army Houston. Following an invocation by Major Kent Davis, Houston area commander, Wanda Durant – entrepreneur, CEO, philanthropist and mother of NBA champion Kevin Durant – provided the keynote address, sharing her personal journey and the importance of philanthropy.
