11:30 a.m. Registration, 12 p.m. Luncheon

Junior League of Houston
1811 Briar Oaks Lane, Houston, Texas 77027

Since its founding in 1974, the University of Houston-Downtown has served a student body as diverse and dynamic as the city it calls home, creating major opportunities for both traditional and non-traditional students.

Co-chaired by Lisa and Saul Valentin, the 2016 UHD Community Engagement Luncheon, will be held to raise both funds and awareness of the UHD's efforts to make Houston a better place for students and all of us to make a life and a living.

Projects as diverse as increasing voter registration, and helping to clean the banks of Buffalo and White Oak Bayous enable UHD students to truly make a difference while contributing more than 300,000 hours in volunteer service over the last year. UHD knows that it is absolutely critical that today's college students understand the importance of connecting what is learned in the classroom with the needs of the world at large.

Please plan to join us at this banner event - on September 15, 2016 at the Junior League of Houston.

Luncheon sponsorships are available at $10,000 (Skyline), $5,000 (Main St.) and $2,500 (Buffalo Bayou). You can visit our online giving page to pay for your sponsorship today with a credit card, view our sponsor levels and benefits or view our sponsor form to respond by mail or email.
