Another week, another "million-dollar luncheon": Fundraising has bounced back in Houston, in typically big Texan fashion.
"It seems to be the week of seven-figure fundraising events with Neighborhood Centers joining the ranks with a non-profit rarity — the million dollar luncheon. Wednesday's 'Heart of Gold' fundraiser filled the ballroom of the Hilton Americas-Houston with 700 supporters who gathered in praise of the non-profit and the honorees — generous philanthropists Sue and Lester Smith. They were presented the Alice Graham Baker Crusader Award for their 'unbridled passion for giving that drives them to provide millions of dollars in support to medical institutions, non-profit organizations in Houston and beyond.'" -- Shelby Hodge, Houston.CultureMap.com
