Wheeler Avenue Women’s Guild raises funds

For decades, the Women’s Guild of Wheeler Avenue Inner City Visions, Inc. has uplifted the community through service, including fundraising to send graduating seniors to college. This year, the Women’s Guild celebrated 56 years of service at the 2019 Audrey H. Lawson Impact Awards Luncheon & Fashion Show. 

Named after its beloved founder, former Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church First Lady Audrey Hoffman Lawson, the sold-out event took place at the Hilton Americas-Houston. There were more than 1,000 attendees, including business professionals, community leaders/partners, dignitaries and partners.

 This year’s awards luncheon exceeded its fundraising goal, raising over $100,000 in scholarship and community service funds.
