President, Houston Division H-E-B Each year, the Houston Advertising Federation has the honor and privilege to present the Trailblazer Award to an individual who has gone above and beyond to enhance the image of Houston through marketing.
In years past, some winners have achieved this by accomplishing monumental feats that have drawn the eyes of the world to Houston.
Others have used their position and influence to make Houston a better place to live and work through bold initiatives based on their incredible faith in the city.
But only one winner, this year’s recipient, has earned this coveted award based on the collective work and commitment of an entire business entity.
It is with great honor and pride to award the 2006 HAF Trailblazer Award to H-E-B, one of the nation’s largest independently owned retailers.
The award will be presented by Bob McNair, owner of the Houston Texans, and accepted by Scott McClelland, President Houston Division H-E-B.
H-E-B is recognized as one of the nation’s most innovative, respected, and successful retailers. For more than 100 years, H-E-B’s commitment and involvement in the community has been evident through their vast charitable contributions creating a tradition of caring throughout the organization.
The Houston Advertising Federation established the Trailblazer Award in 1997. Previous winners include Randall Onstead, Drayton McLane, Don Jordan, Dick Johnson, Bob McNair, Jim McIngvale, John Nau and Tilman Fertitta.
The Trailblazer Award Gala will be held on Tuesday, November 14, 2006, at The Houstonian Hotel. Please help us honor this incredible company by your presence and your sponsorship. This year’s sponsorship opportunities include $10,000 for an Underwriting sponsor, $5,000 for a Presenting sponsor, $2,750 for a Supporting sponsorship, $1,750 for a Table sponsorship and individual tickets for $175.
