The Sip N Stroll benefits The Ballard House, a 40 guest-suite hospitality house which offers no-cost housing for patients and their families who are in the Houston area receiving treatment for a life-threatening illness.
The Ballard House, located at 21421 Cinco Park Road in Katy, hosted a Grand Opening for their new wing that opened in late January 2019. The expansion added 16 guest rooms, a living room, kitchen and laundry room for guests to use free of charge. Funds raised from Sip N Stroll ticket sales and sponsorships are funneled directly into operations for The Ballard House, making this season’s “can’t miss event” more timely than ever.
To date, more than $280,000 has been raised for The Ballard House through Sip N Stroll efforts providing a whopping 10,370 room nights.
