Houston Hospice presents the 22nd annual Spirit Award Dinner, a hybrid event that will feature live-streaming and in-person portions. The dinner will honor The Garden Club of Houston.

Historically, The Laura Lee Blanton Community Spirit Award recognizes the grace and generosity of a community leader or organization that has made a positive impact on the Greater Houston Area. Established in 1924, The Garden Club of Houston has supported a plethora of Houston area green spaces, including The Garden at Houston Hospice, in addition to providing educational programs that promote the love of horticulture in children, teens, and adults.

This year’s featured speaker will be New York Times bestselling author and breast cancer survivor Elin Hilderbrand. Previously scheduled for the Spring Butterfly Luncheon, the Johns Hopkins University and Iowa Writer’s Workshop graduate is best known as the “queen of beach reads” with 28 novels about Nantucket life and love to her name.
