What: Hope and Healing Center & Institute Chrysalis Award Luncheon
Where: Royal Sonesta Hotel
PC Moment: New York Times best-selling author, No One Cares About Crazy People, Ron Powers powerfully shared his difficult story of having two sons diagnosed with schizophrenia and losing one to the disease. His message of those struggling with mental issues was the heartbeat of the luncheon, proceeds from which help the center and institute fill the unmet needs for mental health care in the Houston community.
Houston Methodist president and CEO Dr. Marc Boom accepted the Chrysalis Award on behalf of Houston Methodist, which was recognized for its commitment to providing compassionate care for those with mental health issues.
More than 550 packed the ballroom for the fundraiser chaired by Katherine and Paul Murphy.
Who: Marnie and Lee Hogan, Elizabeth and Gary Petersen, Marie Wise, Polly and Murray Bowden, Aimee Snoots, Susan Baker, Maureen Hackett, Bonnie Likover, Flo McGee, Nancy and Jim Lomax, Wendy and Ben Moreland and Hope and Healing executive director Matt Stanford.
