THE WOODLANDS, TX (Friday, March 25, 2022) — Interfaith of The Woodlands is pleased to announce the debut of its newest event THE WALK THE WOODLANDS. Set to take place on Friday, August 19, 2022, this black tie fashion affair will honor six individuals who have positively impacted our region, both through their professional achievements and personal contributions.

The Woodlands community has flourished because of its committed residents and business leaders.  The Walk The Woodlands was created to recognize these passionate individuals in a stylish, exciting and cutting-edge fashion experience. Creatively led by renowned Houston fashion show producer, Lenny Matuszewski, Jr., the event includes a New York-style runway fashion show featuring designs from Saks Fifth Avenue; as well as a luxury raffle and auction. The six Community Champions will star in the Runway Finale, leading guests into a one-of-a-kind After Party headlined by the Bucktown All-Stars, direct from New Orleans.

Chosen through a selection committee, Brian Albert, Noemi Gonzalez, DeAnn Guidry, Justin Hogan MD, Diane Kink and Ray Sanders will serve as the Inaugural Community Champions. “At the heart of our community are those who serve others, and each of our models has shown a deep commitment to working among corporations, organizations, schools and civic groups to bring stakeholders together and build upon their success. We look forward to celebrating them in a brand new format and honoring all that each has done to elevate the South Montgomery County area,” shares Missy Herndon, Interfaith of The Woodlands President & CEO.

The 1st Annual event will be held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center on Friday, August 19, 2022. Chaired by Erin Doré and Heather Sanford, all event proceeds will fund programs offered through Interfaith of The Woodlands and Interfaith Community Clinic, designed to assist our Montgomery County neighbors in need.
