Backing the Blue Dinner
By now you know Lone Star Region PCA has announced a new charity partnership with the Houston Police Foundation. The HPF funds special programs for officer safety, training, equipment, and technology.
HPF also supports SWAT, K-9, and Mounted Patrol teams. The Houston Police Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation formed by local business leaders to support projects of the Houston Police Department.
To kick-off our new partnership, we have a unique opportunity for members attending the “Backing the Blue” HPF benefit dinner on Saturday, July 29th starting at 6:30 PM.
Our hosts for the evening will be Ara Malkhassian, owner of the Alara Garage. Starting at 7:00 PM, guests will take a tour of Alara’s stunning and extensive car collection, which not surprisingly includes several Porsche automobiles…
….in addition to other exotic and specialty cars!
