John Palmer Art Names Trees of Hope as its 2019 Charity of the Year
Since 2011, John Palmer Art's Charity of the Year program has partnered with Houston nonprofits, raised awareness on issues such as literacy, social justice and veterans affairs and given tens of thousands of dollars to support high-impact programs.

Artist John Ross Palmer says, "I am thrilled about this year's partnership for numerous reasons. In 2018, I was able to attend the Trees of Hope Gala where I heard personal, passionate stories about the positive impact Star of Hope has had on some of the most marginalized members of our community. Also, after an examination of statistics and equipped with the knowledge that 25% of Texas children live below the poverty line, I know that any help I can provide will be much needed and very appreciated."
