Mustang Derby: Run for the Roses

We invite you to join us at Lakeside Country Club for the Mustang Derby–Run for the Roses, Houston Christian High School's 2024 Gala and Auction, on April 12, 2024.

This memorable evening will feature a lively cocktail hour with a 3-course seated dinner, Live Auction/Big Board, Auction Party sign-ups, and more surprises! Closing out the evening will be the Home Stretch, our after-party featuring music, dancing, and more!

Our gala brings together the HC community to celebrate the many milestones we have accomplished, the friendships made, and the vision for our future. We are writing to ask you to support our largest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from this event directly benefit our students by contributing to academic experiences, athletic and fine arts opportunities, innovative technology, and faculty enrichment.  

Please help us continue to grow our award-winning programs and outstanding curriculum. Your support of the gala will make an immediate difference in the daily lives of HC students. It's also a great opportunity to create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime!

We invite you to join us for an unforgettable evening that is sure to be one of a kind, as we continue to lead HC to victory.
