Competition was fiery as recipes for boiled crawfish, jambalaya, etoufee and cocktail sauce were judged for the bragging rights to be their category’s number one at the recent DPIS Engineering crawfish boil fundraiser called “Pinchin’ Tails for HomeAid Houston.” This annual event raised $20,000 for HomeAid’s mission “to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.”
This is the second year that HomeAid was the beneficiary of this popular event held at DPIS in the Tomball area. Dozens of volunteers organized and ran the crawfish boil that hosted a record 1,000 guests. Entertainment included the band Stringbenders and a special appearance by Austin Allsup, who was among the top 10 winners of The Voice.

“We are honored to be a part of HomeAid Houston and their mission,” said Brannon King, vice president of sales and marketing for DPIS. “We support this great organization because of the work they do in providing the homeless dignified housing while they work to get back on their feet. We could not think of a better organization to support within our industry.”
“Pinchin’ Tails for HomeAid Houston has been such a blessing to the HomeAid cause,” said Salty Thomason, president of HomeAid. “DPIS and the many sponsors, cooking teams and volunteers who make this event so successful, reflect the tremendous generosity and spirit of giving that is so prevalent in the building industry. We thank DPIS for their continued support in building hope and homes for the homeless.”
