“Our community came to celebrate and support each other,” said Missy Herndon, President & CEO, Interfaith of The Woodlands. “The Presenting Sponsor St. Luke’s Health and Exclusive Automotive Partner, Sewell Automotive Companies, along with all of the sponsors and donors made the evening possible through their generosity so we can continue to meet the healthcare and basic needs of our neighbors in Montgomery County.” 

Saks Fifth Avenue headlined the New York Style Runway Fashion Show that was creatively led by fashion show producer, Lenny Matuszewski, Jr., and Senior Fashion Stylist, Tamara Klosz Bonar. Guests also lined up on both sides of the runway to cheer and celebrate this year’s six Inaugural Community Champions that each have a heart for this community: Brian Albert, Noemi Gonzalez, DeAnn Guidry, Dr. Justin Hogan, Diane Kink and Ray Sanders.




The Walk’s After Party was headlined by the band Time Machine. Guests were wowed with fun props, a fashion sketch artist, stilt neon entertainers, a 360-degree photo booth and more! Co-chaired by Erin Doré and Heather Sanford, their vision came to life for this year’s event. All event proceeds fund programs through Interfaith of The Woodlands and Interfaith Community Clinic.
