United We Dine

Fifteen of Houston’s local food and beverage vendors, a variety of local entertainment talent, and 375 Houstonians of various backgrounds came together at The Alliance’s 3rd Annual United We Dine fundraiser event at the Kim Son Bellaire Ballroom on November 14. Proceeds from the event went to the The Alliance, an organization that provides services to refugees, immigrants, and underserved communities in Houston. 

Cynthia Cisneros, a reporter for 30 years at ABC13, served as Mistress of Ceremonies for the night. Mayor Sylvester Turner spoke to the attendees and emphasized the importance of Houston’s diversity to its success and praised the work of The Alliance. 

An award was  presented to Caterpillar as the 2019 Corporate Ambassador for The Alliance due to its work at the organization’s community events. Cynthia Cisneros and Houston City Council member Mike Laster were recognized as 2019 Community Ambassadors for their outstanding records in community service.

During the program,  attendees  were free to indulge in the delicious food and incredible art — all from Houston. Food vendors included Kim Son, Churrascos, Plant It Forward Farms, Ginga Cottage, Land and Sea Sushi, Aling’s Chinese Bistro, Mezban, Layal, Fadi’s, Chefs in the City, Afghan Village Restaurant, Sweets by Belen, and Suzie’s Pastry Shoppe. At the end of the event, the People’s Choice Award went to Afghan Village. Turkish Airlines always a big supporter of the Alliance gave away a wonderful trip to one lucky guest.
