Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Name Champion of Hope Honorees for 2020 Style Show
GALVESTON (February 2020) – The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary is proud to announce that Galveston couple Michael & Ashley Cordray, owners of Save 1900, will be honored as the 2020 Champions of Hope at the Runway of Hope Style Show and Luncheon on March 27 at the San Luis Resort.
The Cordrays are passionate about saving old homes in Galveston, buying houses that are in danger of being demolished and giving them new life. “They all have their own story,” says Ashley. “We want to be the people that bring ‘em back.”
The work of Michael and Ashley is featured in “Big Texas Fix” on the DIY Network and on HGTV.
“We thought of Michael and Ashley for this award because of their passion for restoration of the old into new. This mirrors what our featured fashion designer, Becky Hollands is doing by creating fashions through redesigning, recycling and recreating donated clothes,” says Treva Wygle of Plan-it Ink Photography and co-chair of the event. “I see both as illustrations of what The Salvation Army does in Galveston by restoring lives by helping people overcome homelessness.”
Tickets are available now online at www.salvationarmygalvestoncounty.org/Runway-of-Hope or by contacting Holly McDonald at 409-939-9013 or email@example.com
