Houston Hospice raised $375,000 at its annual Spirit Award Dinner, where Jim Reeder and Eric Nevil were recognized with the Laura Lee Blanton Community Spirit Award.

On October 20, Houston Hospice held its 24th Annual Laura Lee Blanton Community Spirit Award Dinner at River Oaks Country Club. Funds raised at the event support Houston Hospice’s programs.

Founded in 1980, Houston Hospice has evolved from an alternative grassroots concept to a leader in hospice care for people of all ages and all walks of life. Houston’s oldest, largest, independent hospice is a community-based, community-supported nonprofit organization. Houston Hospice serves Texans from all socio-economic groups irrespective of a person’s ethnicity, beliefs, or ability to pay.

Houston Hospice recognized several supporters for their dedication to its mission:

  • Jim Reeder and Eric Nevil – Laura Lee Blanton Community Spirit Award
  • Dr. Elizabeth Strauch – Heart of Houston Hospice Service Award
  • Anne Baillio – Heart of Houston Hospice Volunteer Award publishes every week.
