Community Family Centers
Centros Familiares de la Comunidad
It’s hotter than an oven
in Houston right now,

And while you want to do something worthwhile for a community organization, the thought of leaving your house and baking in your own skin at another event is the last thing most of us want to do.
Well, CFC has the solution to cheer up your late summer heat woes!
Couch potatoes can be heroes too by participating in the first
Couch Potato Gala for Community Family Centers.
Community Family Centers cordially invites you and your family
to enjoy a wonderful stay-at-home evening to
benefit individuals and families served by CFC.
Just make a donation or become a sponsor and
enjoy the Couch Potato's ultimate affair:
