Hello [firstname],

Welcome to the BABC - Houston newsletter of upcoming events, articles, jobs and more from our membership.


There will be shopping opportunities galore this week-end. Put on your walking shoes and expect BIG crowds. Senate Bill 485; (83rd Regular Legislative Session, 2013) sets Aug. 9-11 as the dates of this year’s annual Sales Tax Holiday. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend. For a more extensive list of eligible purchases click here.


Congratulations are in order for BABC board member Lauren Stockard of Advancial Federal Credit Union and her husband BABC member Nate Stockard of Blue Atlas Marketing
on the birth of their daughter, Savannah. It may not be a royal birth,but from what we understand she's still a little princess! Best wishes Lauren and Nate from your BABC family!


And, speaking of royal births, the BABC Royal Baby Shower is coming up quickly on August 28. The event benefits DePelchin Children's Center. Admission is $25 + a shower gift for the center. The event is being held at the Tasting Room Uptown Park.  Pre-registration is required. Download the invitation here to share with colleagues and friends.
