This year the holiday wishes of 30 special families, including two from Katy, will be granted during the 27th Annual Gallery Furniture Holiday Giveaway.
Katy families that will be recognized include the Olachia Family, who is described by nominators as the â€œposter familyâ€ for breast cancer awareness and support in the community; and the Royal Family, who moved to Houston after their mother suffered through an abusive relationship.
Fifteen deserving families were selected to receive new furniture for their homes from letters submitted to Gallery Furniture by a panel of judges including executives from Houston media outlets and owner Jim â€œMattress Mackâ€ McIngvale. The remaining 15 families will be chosen by the Gallery Furniture Facebook fans on Dec. 20 with the deliveries to follow.
â€œGallery Furniture is all about being a part of the community and wanted the community to be a part of this giveaway so we reached out to our thousands of Facebook friends to help us choose some of this yearâ€™s recipients,â€ says McIngvale. â€œ2010 was a difficult year for many Houstonians and we are happy to be able to help make the season a little brighter for these very special people.â€
Over the next two weeks, Gallery Furniture will deliver furniture specifically chosen to fit each families needs. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
