Cinco Charities hosted the first Ballard House Legacy Luncheon at the Club at Falcon Point on October 15, 2014 at noon with 150 guests in attendance. Jim McIngvale, “Mattress Mack” the keynote speaker delivered an inspiring legacy message laced with heartwarming and funny “real life” stories. The charity was started in 2006 by real estate associates at Keller Williams Premier Realty Katy, responding to the challenge of the CEO of Keller Williams National to “leave a legacy” in their community. Fast forward to 2014. The Ballard House is a shining beacon of the generosity of the Ballard family, the loyalty of sponsors at events throughout the years, the dedication of volunteers and the perseverance of the founding realtors. Together, we are making a difference. We are leaving a legacy.
Carmen and Chris Welch from Alabama, guests at the Ballard House shared their personal experience during Chris’ cancer treatments. Carmen said, “We were overwhelmed when we arrived to find the comforts offered at The Ballard House to make it feel so much like home. The encouragement it brought to us to know we would be coming “home” each day after treatment to new friends who were going through similar challenges as we are is priceless.”
