The Legacy Community Health Services’ 11th Annual Luncheon Inspires
By Jennifer Roosth Photography by Kim Coffman
SETTING: This sold-out champagne must-attend luncheon was held at the always-popular event icon, Houston’s Wortham Center. The stunning, red-hued floral arrangements from Darryl and Co. and cuisine by Jackson and Co. brightened the day for the attendees.
VIBE: Celebration galore. It is one of the best luncheons of the fall and this year’s Living Legacy Award was presented to Shelby Hodge for her exceptional support of both Legacy and Houston’s philanthropic community over the years. Mayor Annise Parker dedicated September 17th, 2013 as Shelby Hodge Day. There was also a moving video which included a tribute to Shelby from former President George Bush, Sr.
CAUSE: The luncheon was chaired by Lora Clemmons and Karen Mayell. Sheridan Williams served as Honorary Chair. Legacy Community Health Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is the largest federally qualified health center in Houston. We love that they provided low-cost or no-cost healthcare services to over 61,000 Houston-area residents in 2012, and expect to eclipse that number this year.
