Six hundred supporters gathered at the Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston for Azalea Gala 2021, which supported the mission of the Christian Community Service Center (CCSC) and honored the work of the Agee Family Foundation. KHOU 11’s Shern-Min Chow emceed the event, which included live music, a wine pull, games, tastings, and a silent auction. Formed in 2010, the Agee Family Foundation helps disadvantaged women, children, and families. The mission of CCSC is to serve the poor, hungry, disabled, and otherwise needy while respecting religious, ethnic, or cultural differences. The gala, chaired by Charlene Brandau O’Shea, raised more than $630,000 for CCSC’s seven social-service programs. Judy Agee, foundation president, is slated to become CCSC board president in 2022. The gala committee included Natalie Agee, Molly Glotfelty, Roz Hill, Joy Posoli, Mary Fairbrother, Deborah Gremillion, Traci Bocock, Sarah Stasny, Annette Tarver, Kathy and Bruce Adams, Trish Branstetter, Kathy Harrison, Carrie Pepi, Wendy and Nathan Wiker, Cathy Beathard, Nina Lambright, Ale Varghese, Toni Cooper, Alicia Hartsfield, Susan Martin, Erin Agee Riley, and Kathy Shearer.
