We are excited to announce that the 2017 Denali Foundation Gala will be celebrating its third year on Saturday, April 1st , with “A Night in the Sky,” featuring a death-defying performance by record-breaking highliner Faith Dickey. We hope you will join us and Co-Chairs Beth Wolff and Gregg Harrison as we honor international philanthropist and activist Joanne King Herring and renowned artist Sabin Howard. “A Night in the Sky” will benefit the Denali Foundation and set the stage as one of our city’s new premiere events for arts-related causes.


 

Denali Schmidt along with his father, Marty Schmidt, perished in an avalanche on the mountain K2 on July 27, 2013. Following their deaths, the Denali Foundation was formed in honor of Denali Schmidt and his passion for art and adventure. Founded by his sister, Sequoia Di Angelo, the Denali Foundation’s mission is the "Preservation of the artwork of Denali Schmidt and ongoing support for the expansion of the minds of young artists."

The Denali Foundation's efforts include providing art supplies to indigenous and underserved communities around the world. Due to the support of Houstonians from last year's gala, the foundation is set to break ground on an artistic and educational facility located in the Kumbu Valley of Nepal in late 2017. 

This year, the foundation will be partnering with local organizations to begin after school artistic initiatives. This exciting new addition will improve the lives of underserved children throughout the Houston area!

We invite you to make plans now to join us this year on Saturday, April 1st at the Corinthian in Houston, Texas, as the 3rd Annual Denali Foundation Gala is sure to be a sold-out event! Through your sponsorship, you will become an integral part  of supporting the expansion of the minds of young artists, near and far, while providing funds for art supplies to schools and communities!

We look forward to you joining us for an amazing evening of adventure as we raise funds for the Denali Foundation and welcome the outstanding performance of our guest speaker, Faith Dickey, at “A Night in the Sky” in the beautiful setting of The Corinthian. Dancing will follow the program.

On behalf of our founder, chairs, hosts, volunteers, and Denali Foundation board members, we thank you for your support. If you have any questions or need more information, please let us know.
