CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare’s 16th Annual Spring Luncheon
March 31—11:30 am to 1:00 pm
Join us at our 16th annual Spring Luncheon on Tuesday, March 31 with special guest Emmy Award-winning actor, director, producer and author Henry Winkler. The Spring Luncheon honors community leaders and raises funds for CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare’s healthcare and social service programs. This year’s event will benefit CHRISTUS St. Mary’s Clinic, located in Houston’s East End. Bonnie & Donald Anderson and Carol & John Quigley will serve as event co-chairs.
The Foundation will proudly honor Valero with the Legacy Award, an award given to recognize and honor those who have demonstrated commitment to continue the legacy of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word by promoting health and welfare to people in need. A major community partner, Valero has generously supported CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare’s work in the East End through the construction of the new CHRISTUS St. Mary’s Clinic at the renovated St. Austin Center. In addition, Valero has been a strong supporter of our work in school clinics through its sponsorship of our annual Nun Run.
