Ball Chairs

Zane Carruth is an award-winning children’s author and prolific marketer who gives generously of her time, compassion and expertise by serving on the Houston SPCA board of directors as well as the capital campaign committee. She personally raised over $3 million for the new campus and most recently helped raise a record-breaking $1 million when she co-chaired the 2021 Houston SPCA’s Howl-O-Ween Ball. Zane also serves as vice president of the Carruth Foundation. She has received multiple honors and awards including ABC13’s ‘Women of Distinction’; The Houston Business Journal: ‘Women Who Mean Business’ award and the ‘Top Impact Maker Honoree’ by CKW Luxe Magazine.

Cheryl Byington has not only demonstrated commitment to others through her work at BP before retiring after 41 years, but also to the more than 60 organizations in the Houston community that have benefited from her leadership roles, mentoring and service on countless boards and committees. She has been honored with several awards and honors including the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Woman of Distinction Honoree; Houston’s 25 Most Beautiful by H Texas magazine and is a Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame Inductee. Cheryl has an adopted dog named Simba, loves to travel and has visited over 60 countries.

Honorary Chair

Linda McIngvale is undoubtedly a hero to our community.  The generosity she and her husband James “Mack” McIngvale, is legendary to Houstonians, and indeed around the country. Together, they have shaped the definition of hometown giving.

A consummate animal lover, Linda is involved in international conservation and wildlife.  Recently, she helped place a tiger that had been living as a pet, into a sanctuary where he could live out his days in comfort and space. If you’ve ever visited her at Club Westside, you can see her love of animals up close and personal!

We cannot imagine Houston without Linda’s fierce loyalty and support for our community. And we are so pleased to have her as our 2022 Honorary Chair.

Deborah Duncan

Award-winning and beloved TV host of KHOU’s Great Day Houston, will be our emcee this year at the Houston SPCA Howl-O-Ween Ball. Duncan is well-known for her contagious humor and will no doubt entertain hundreds of guests at one of Houston’s premier fall events.
