The fundraiser is a project of Leadership El Paso Class 36, a program of the Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce, to raise money and awareness and to celebrate the twenty years that the Opportunity Center for the Homeless has provided services to our community. The El Paso Chihuahuas are also a partner in this premiere event held at the new Southwest University Park.
