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.
