The Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series

The Council's Spring & Fall Fundraising Events

The Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series was created in memory of June and Virgil Waggoner’s son Jay, who died of alcoholism at the young age of 36. Since 1999, this premier charity event has gained national recognition and our Spring and Fall Luncheons are two of the largest philanthropic gatherings in Houston. Since its inception, the Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series has been promoting a healthy, addiction-free lifestyle and the benefits it brings to our entire community.
