This weekend we celebrate the 30th anniversary of a special event Ward & Ames produced that was made possible when President George H.W. Bush brought the Economic Summit of Industrialized Nations to Houston July of 1990.

The photo below is a stage shot of the Economic Summit of Industrialized Nations “Thank You Houston” event we produced for President George H.W. Bush thirty years ago today, July 11, 1990, on the campus of University Of Houston. It was the final event of the Summit.

Though this photo is several poorly stitched together we have a 4.5’ long 3 photo panel version on the wall in our office that is much better looking.

This is a shot of the finale'. We built an air-conditioned presidential box on house left with USSS armor and bulletproof glass, the mainstage had a 400 voice choir, 60 piece orchestra, and 40 members Houston Children’s Chorus singing "America, The Beautiful” with fireworks overhead. House right had a cutaway press platform with footcandles dictated by White House Communications and at 70’ to the presidential box.

We were simulcast on all three major affiliates for 3 hours on that evening. The performance included Randy Travis, Marilyn McCoo, Lisa Hartman, and others.

Nancy and I reflect warmly and say thank you for all that you do for our company. And please know we are looking forward to returning to back to normal though that will still take some time.

This photo depicts a tribute to Latin America with a performance segment for the 70th Anniversary of MD Anderson Cancer Center that Ward & Ames produced on May 5th, 2011, nine years ago today, in Minute Maid Park.

The performance featured exquisite soprano Barbara Padilla, who lives in Houston, and is a cancer survivor. She won the hearts of millions as the first runner-up on Season Four of NBC’s America's Got Talent.

Barbara is accompanied by the Houston Symphony, the University of Texas Pan American Mariachi Aztlan, and Ballet Folklorico Luz de Luna. They performed Jurame, Malaguena Salerosa, El Son de la Negra, and Guadalajara.

Guess who made a surprise appearance broadcast during the One America Appeal launch in 2017?

- "Deep from the Heart: The One America Appeal", was held on October 21, 2017, at the Reed Arena at Texas A&M University in College Station and headlined by all five living former U.S. Presidents. Ticket sales and other proceeds went to the special hurricane recovery effort.

Dear Clients, Colleagues, and Friends:

We hope you enjoyed the sacred Easter and Passover weekend as best as possible, and are doing well, and staying healthy. Our thoughts and prayers remain with you and your families in this time of global crisis.

While we are confined to our homes, we're reflecting on the past and looking forward to the time when, together, we can create indelible moments to support your ongoing missions. By familiarizing ourselves with any and all resources available to us in planning for the future, we're using this imposed hiatus as an opportunity to breathe, learn new things, better ourselves, and envision new projects. We wish to stay connected, show you we continue to care, and manifest confidence in our plans on your behalf in the years ahead.

Humankind will celebrate anew, embracing special and commemorative moments. We will always be grateful for where we have been and strive to determine how we can best create singular occasions going forward. Be they philanthropic fundraisers, celebratory milestones, sports-related ceremonies, corporate events, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, reunions or private gatherings, our goal is to make the moments we plan for you so exceptional, they will be remembered always.

Trusting the world will rebound thanks to a merciful God, we are poised and ready to make even more wonderful memories with you.

With grace, faith, and gratitude,

Nancy & Danny and your Ward & Ames Special Events Team
