The 27th annual Race Against Violence, co-chaired by J.J. Spedale, Heidi Zimmerman and Tom Stilwell was a huge success March 7, 2015. The event has raised over $275,000 and you can still contribute to the organization to boost that number. The money raised helps the Women’s Center provide shelter and support services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Mayor Annise Parker was the honorary chair and representing her on March 7 was Women’s Center Board Member and Houston City Council Member, Ed Gonzalez. Also present at the race Houston Area Women’s Center President and CEO, Rebecca White; Board Chair Sandra Aultman and former Women’s Center CEO Ellen Cohen.
