Specifically, it funds programs hosted by HAULYP.

With an ever-growing membership, a digital network of over 3,000, and social following of over 6,000, this diverse group of young professionals is impacting the Houston community every day through Hurricane Harvey relief, social events that create a networking platform, and meetings filled with valuable professional and political information.
After being postponed due to Hurricane Harvey, Opulence will be held Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018, 8pm-12am at America Tower Plaza.
