Spirited HMH Lunch Celebrates Human Rights and Holocaust Education

David W. Leebron and Y. Ping Sun, Barbara J. Herz and Khambrel Marshall

DURING A MOVING program at the Hilton Americas hotel, more than 800 supporters of the Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) honored Y. Ping Sun and David Leebron’s marked contributions to the organization and to the city over the course of their two decades here.

The Guardian of the Human Spirit luncheon annually celebrates individuals and institutions who work to make the world a better place. This year’s event — attended by a true who’s-who of Houston society, including Lynn Wyatt, Nancy and Jack Dinerstein, Beth Wolff, Jim Crownover, Mayor Sylvester Turner, Annise Parker, and several consul generals — brought in nearly $700,000. ABC News anchor Juju Chang, who has reported on injustice and racial equity for decades, joined virtually to give a keynote address.

Previous recipients of the Guardian of the Human Spirit Award include Lester and Sue Smith, Barbara and Gerald Hines, the Astros Foundation and H-E-B, among others.
