Houston, Texas – The Houston CPA Society’s annual scholarship event will be held on February 16, 2013 at the University of Houston Hilton Hotel. This annual event is one of the Society’s major fundraising events and has been entitled the Annual Scholarship Extravaganza with the theme of “Denim & Diamonds Gala.”

This year’s annual event honours Johnny & Linda Veselka for their continuing participation and involvement with the Society for approximately four decades. Johnny has served on various committees with the CPA Society, both locally and state wide throughout his expansive career.

“I appreciate the honour bestowed on me by the Houston Chapter and would like to say that it would not have been possible to achieve without the support of everyone I have been associated with at Briggs & Veselka Co., family and friends,” said Johnny Veselka, one of the founders and past Managing Shareholder of Briggs & Veselka Co.

“I cherish the memories of my activities in the accounting and civic area during my career in Accounting and especially seeing how the Firm has grown and continues to grow as a major force in the Houston area,” Johnny concluded.
