Houston • Nov. 10, 2016

Houston First Corporation was a major underwriter for the 2016 Consular Ball “Houston: Champions in the Global Arena.” The city’s consular corps and many city dignitaries and stakeholders turned out in force for the annual gala October 15 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
 
Mayor Sylvester Turner wrote to Houston First president and CEO Dawn Ullrich to thank HFC for its underwriting role. Wrote the Mayor:

“Once again, the Consular Ball has brought together our city's thriving business and international communities, built new connections and relationships, and honored the esteemed members of Houston's Consular Corps. As the most diverse city in America, a global hub of energy, medicine, space exploration and much more, Houston is deeply invested in encouraging international business and cultural exchanges. In view of your contributions towards this goal of greater connectivity, I would like to sincerely thank you for helping make this year's Consular Ball a great success.

“Thank you again for being one of our champions of industry by sponsoring the 2016 Consular Ball. Without your enthusiastic participation, this event would not have been possible.”
