On Thursday, November 3 Crime Stoppers and the City of Houston celebrated 30 years of community action at the annual Crime Stoppers Gala, hosted at the Omni Houston. Over 30 years, Crime Stoppers has solved more than 30,000 crimes and paid millions in cash rewards. It’s through a partnership with the media, the police and Houston’s citizens that these accomplishments were made possible.
Thursday’s Gala invited members of the Houston Community to regale in one of Houston’s most impressive settings. The evening commenced with a welcome from Heisman Trophy winner Earl Campbell and remarks from gala host Dave Ward, anchor for ABC 13 Eyewitness News. Steve Forbes of Forbes Media and Magazine graced the stage with his informative address on the role and impact of business and media in our Nation’s time.
Gala Chairs Joe’l and Rocky Mafrige with Amberly and C.F. “Jeb” Wait took to the stage with elegance to encourage continued support of Crime Stoppers, and raised a glass to the next 30 years of crime prevention.
The night celebrated the successes of 30 consecutive years of Crime Stoppers’ approach to solving and preventing crime. However the evening was truly punctuated with a pledge to continue fostering the partnerships that empower citizens and promote community safety throughout Houston.
