Please join us Saturday, September 29th for the first ever LGBT Military Ball. This event is hosted by the Executive and Professional Association of Houston (EPAH) and benefits the Lone Star Veterans Association (LSVA LGBT Affinity Group). Your support means a lot to the growing veteran LGBT community here in Houston. Our mission is to bridge the gap between the veteran and LGBT communities, while making a positive impact in the external community. We build a safe space for LGBT veterans to gather, connect, and celebrate together for the first time. We have trained volunteer Community Leaders, who facilitate our monthly programs and conduct resource navigation for LGBT veterans.
Funds from this event will go towards hiring a permanent program coordinator to continue the growth and impact LSVA has on the 8,500 LGBT veterans in the Greater Houston area. Currently the group only scratches the surface of these LGBT veterans in Houston. With your support we will work towards making sure all LGBT veterans know that they are part of One Veteran Community.
It will be a great party and a fun, impactful fundraising event and memorable night. We'll hear from the first graduate couple to be married at the West Point Chapel (Read their story on the Huffington Post here). Many from the community will be traveling from across the country to attend this first of its kind event, make sure to get your tickets early.
For those that want to stay the night, the Le Meridien Hotel has generously offered us a block of rooms at $89/night (normally over $200) and a $20 donation will be made towards the LSVA LGBT group.

Thank you to our Sponsors:
Lone Star Veterans Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides military veterans with community building activities that strengthen careers and families.
According to the Department of Labor 80% of all jobs are placed through personal networks, but 60% of veterans cite a lack of personal and professional networks when they leave the military as a hurdle to their transition. Building the veteran community means creating professional and personal networks of our successful members to advance their careers, as well as those new to the community to find a career and a family to belong to.
Your support of Lone Star Veterans Association allows us to connect veterans and their families to resources, opportunities and other veterans.
