Houston Area Women's Center Spring Gala (featuring...

Presented by Houston Area Women's Center at Hilton - Post Oak

It’s time to Stand Up and Roar against domestic and sexual violence at the Houston Area Women’s Center’s 2014 Spring Gala, featuring Comedian Margaret Cho (pictured), Friday, May 16 at the Hilton Post Oak Hotel.

The evening will kick off with a VIP reception, followed by cocktails at 7:00 p.m. After dinner is served, Margaret Cho will perform, followed by music and dancing with Latin rock band Mango Punch.

Beginning with her early days on the scene in SoCal, comedian Margaret Cho has always been the Agent Provocateur of stand up. Never one to shy away from a difficult, or even 'taboo' topic, there is no subject off limits. Her socially aware brand of comedy has made her both a thought leader as well as a teacher to those with open minds and open hearts.

An accomplished entertainer, Cho has received three Grammy nominations for Best Comedy Album and has had two shows debut Off Broadway (I'm The One That I Want and The Sensuous Woman). She launched her television career in 1994 with All American Girl, followed by one of the first “reality sitcoms” to air on VH1, The Cho Show. She currently stars in Drop Dead Diva, which airs on the Lifetime network, and she’s recently been cast in a new Tina Fey comedy that will debut this fall on FOX.

The proceeds of this event benefit survivors of domestic and sexual violence who seek shelter, counseling and services from the Women’s Center.
