Crawfish Boil Kick Off

Crawfish 15

The coldest night this winter couldn’t stop our Crawfish Boil Kick-off. Thursday January 7 our host committee, chaired by Will Chang, Rachel and Alex Lopez, and Stephanie McGraw, met at Café 4212 to kick planning into high gear for our 5th Annual Crawfish Boil this spring. The gathering saw familiar faces who have worked with The Women’s Home for years as well as some newly involved members impassioned about our mission. After a brief overview of the Crawfish Boil’s previous years and The Home’s mission from staff, the event chairs led a brainstorming session on how to blow last year’s event out of the water. The event chairs discussed promotional planning to help reach even more of Houston, preparation for this year’s silent auction, and networking with event sponsors. A backdrop of Zydeco music and spicy boiled shrimp helped the planning committee get into the crawfish spirit.

This year’s crawfish boil will return to the West Alabama Ice House on Saturday, March 28, 2015 for a day of good food, live music, fun and games in support of The Women’s Home and our residents. Last year’s Crawfish Boil saw over 550 guests and organizers this year are expecting more than 600 attendees. Kick off the spring of 2015 with a good time in good company for a great cause at our 5th Annual Crawfish Boil.
