11TH annual Salute to Our Heroes Gala
 
On February 9, 2019, the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF) will celebrate our 11th annual Salute to Our Heroes Gala at the Omni Hotel Houston Westside paying tribute to our area military personnel and veterans who have given so much for our country and community. The evening includes a Missing Man Table and Honors Ceremony, dinner, silent and live auction, and guest speaker Mark Nutsch. At the end of the evening, there is also a car raffle with a 1 in 400 chance of winning a 2019 Honda HR-V LX Sport Utility Vehicle.
 
Station & Ayers Insurance Services & Consulting is the Edward Station Memorial Photography Sponsor. Memorial Hermann Cypress is a Brigadier General Sponsor. VIP Reception Sponsors include Associated Credit Union of Texas, Dally+ Associates, and Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital. The Program Sponsor is Hightower Electric Company.
 
Guest speaker, Commander Mark Nutsch shares the now-declassified true-life story of how he led a 12-man Green Beret team of U.S. Special Forces on a covert mission to Afghanistan to overthrow the Taliban immediately following the 9/11 attacks of 2001. They rode to war on horses to fight the enemy, side by side with their Muslim counterparts, capturing the strategic city of Mazar-i-Sharif, and successfully overthrew the Taliban. Their story has been told in the blockbuster movie “12 Strong” starring Chris Hemsworth, and the New York Times bestseller “Horse Soldier”.
 
CFEF was established in 1970 as a non-profit to raise money to fund a scholarship for high school graduates in the area. Over the past 48 years, the Foundation has grown tremendously through the efforts of the Board of Trustees and the generosity of the Cy-Fair Community. The Foundation has awarded over $8 million in scholarships to more than 1800 Cypress-Fairbanks ISD graduating seniors. CFEF is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all contributions are tax-deductible, as allowed by the law.
