Thank you for "Changing HoUSton with a Giving Heart" at the 2017 National Philanthropy Day® Awards Luncheon! 

A crowd of nearly 1,000 filled the Hilton Americas on Thursday, November 16, in honor of NPD. This year's event, chaired by Sara Wise and Marilu Garza, and honorary chairs Trini Mendenhall and Truman Bell of ExxonMobil, recognized Houston's "giving hearts" with awards that honored individuals, foundations and companies who exemplify the city's philanthropic spirit.
