Houston Hospice presents Butterfly Luncheon with Mitch Albom
Mitch Albom, best-selling author, journalist, and broadcaster, will make a rare Houston appearance to speak at the Houston Hospice 15th Annual Butterfly Luncheon.
With the humor, insight and compassion that made his first novel, Tuesdays with Morrie, a runaway best-seller, Albom will talk about the connectedness that serendipitously results from the seemingly random path of life’s journey. This is a major theme of his latest book, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto, in which he notes that we're all in a band, in fact several bands of people and groups throughout our lifetime. This book entices readers to examine what part they’re playing in each of those "bands."
Proceeds from the luncheon fund Houston Hospice operations and its Butterfly Program of pediatric hospice care. The Butterfly Program was developed in 1996 to meet the needs of children with life-limiting conditions. Through this program, a team of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice aides and volunteers with expertise in children's care are devoted to caring for children and their families.
