Chip Gaines joined Houston Baptist University (HBU) for the Spirit of Excellence Gala at The Post Oak Hotel. The event featured Kiza the Husky, incredible performances by HBU alumni, the presentation of awards to notable Houstonians and unique advice from Chip Gaines. The evening began with a silent auction, featuring prizes like A Night at the Museum, HBU Cheerleader for a Day and more.
The silent auction, in combination with the funds raised from table sales and sponsorships, raised an astounding $658,434 for institutional scholarships. 94 percent of students at HBU benefit from some form of university financial aid.
