Men of Distinction Lunch Marks Anniversary and Fundraising Milestone — $5.5 Mil for the Med Center!
THE SOCIAL BOOK’S 15th Men of Distinction luncheon, which raises money for pediatric research in the Texas Medical Center, added four more to its list of philanthropic gentlemen who make Houston a better place — bringing the total to 60 over the course of the event’s history.
Portraits of each honoree, taken by Gittings, were displayed on a photo wall in the ballroom of the River Oaks Country Club, where the lunch was held. Chair Tracy Dieterich and emcee Tom Koch welcomed guests and introduced the afternoon’s honorees, Stanley Appel, John Butler, Jr., Keith Mosing and Jim Postl.
They also introduced the recipients of three $100,000 grants for medical research: Allison Speer (UTHealth), Alessandro Grattoni and Osama Gaber (Houston Methodist), and Michael Belfort and Sundef Keswani (Texas Children’s and Baylor College of Medicine).
The Men of Distinction event has provided more than $5.5 million in grants over the course of the last 15 years. Cheers to that!
