2005 Trailblazer Gala

This year, the Houston Advertising Federation celebrates 94 years of service as one of the oldest service organizations in Houston. On Wednesday, November 9, 2005 HAF will host the ninth annual "Trailblazer" Gala at the Houstonian Hotel at which the HAF Trailblazer Award will be presented to Tilman Fertitta.

The Trailblazer Award recognizes individuals for their outstanding contributions in building and enhancing Houston''s image. Tilman Fertitta has exemplified the outstanding characteristics that embody the kind of charity, citizenship and service for which our community is known. Other previous winners: John Nau, Jim McIngvale, Bob McNair, Richard Johnson, Don Jordan, Drayton McLane, Randall Onstead and Gordon Bethune, make a very important statement about the value of marketing for their own companies and the positive recognition their work brings to the City of Houston.

We hope that you and your guests will be present as we celebrate the awarding of this year''s Trailblazer Award.
