How to Get Tickets

Make reservations with online payments or check payment at HPCJ Peacemaker Awards Dinner.  Get your tickets soon because the current price of only $80 per person goes up to $90 per person on September 1,  and then $100 per person on October 1.

Location, Parking, How to get there:

Because a suitable-size ballroom was not available at our regular venue this year, the dinner will be at the Crowne Plaza Hotel River Oaks.  This hotel is centrally located on the north frontage road of the Southwest Freeway between Kirby and Buffalo Speedway.   Check-in, with a cash bar and social hour for everyone attending the dinner, is from 6-7 pm. The dinner and program start at 7 pm.  We are working with our event planner and the chef on delicious entree choices for both omnivores and vegans.

Self Parking is located in the convenient hotel garage for $3.00.  Valet parking, if needed, is $8.00.
