  The Family Place Texas Trailblazer Awards luncheon chairs Stephanie and Travis Hollman, Carol Seay and Stephanie Seay are thrilled to announce President and Mrs. George W. Bush as Distinguished Chairs of The Family Place Texas Trailblazer Awards Luncheon this fall, which pays tribute to the Legacy of Harold C. Simmons as the Texas Trailblazer Award honoree.

The Texas Trailblazer Award recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to the community. This year, The Family Place is honored to pay tribute to the Legacy of Harold C. Simmons for his support of The Family Place as well as the many, many organizations, charities, hospitals and countless people who have benefited from his unprecedented generosity.

Slated for Wednesday, September 17th at the Hilton Anatole Hotel, the luncheon features a conversation with Joe Torre, a former All-Star baseball player, four-time World Series champion as manager of the New York Yankees and incoming member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Inspired by his experiences of growing up as a witness to domestic violence, Torre and his wife founded Safe at Home Foundation which operates a number of domestic violence resource centers called Margaret’s Place, named after his mother, in the greater New York City area. Dallas’ very own Dale Hansen, WFAA Channel 8 sports newscaster and domestic violence prevention advocate, will conduct the interview.

          Paige Flink, CEO, The Family Place, said, “I think I speak for all of the nonprofits and charities that have been blessed by gifts from Harold C. Simmons when I say thank you for being our angel and beacon of light over so many years, for helping us to provide a good life for others and for understanding the issues of our community and having the heart to help.”       

The Family Place is the largest domestic violence agency in the Metroplex and provides safety, meals, medical care and counseling to families, women, men and children to escape from domestic violence. And, though women and children represent the majority of victims, men are affected as well—as victims, perpetrators, witnesses and as bystanders. The comprehensive services that prevent violence and fully support women, children and men on their path from fear to safety are free. Last year’s event was a complete sell-out, so now is the time to reserve your table or ticket. Sponsorships and underwriting are available.
