Robin Bush Award Honoree: The Hamill Foundation
Speaker: Rick Smith
We invite you to be part of the annual Hearts of Hope Luncheon: Connecting our Hearts.
Bo’s Place will honor The Hamill Foundation with the Robin Bush Award, given each year to those who have made a marked difference in the lives of children in our community. The Hamill Foundation was founded in 1969 by Claud and Marie Hamill and is among the ten largest foundations in Houston. With over 15 years of generous support from The Hamill Foundation, Bo’s Place has been able to provide a healing, safe place for grieving families.
Our Special Guest Speaker will be Rick Smith, who became the youngest general manager in the NFL in 2006 and established a career as a respected voice and innovator among NFL leadership. Rick and his late wife, Tiffany Avery Smith, have three children, Robert Lamar, Christian Lamar, and Avery Jordan. Tiffany was an accomplished television producer and an advocate for many children’s charities in Houston. Tiffany was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 and after nearly a year and half long battle, died in January 2019. Rick will share his grief journey with attendees, from supporting his children and wife through her treatment, to finding resiliency and purpose after her death. Rick and his three children live each day to honor the memory of their beloved wife and mother.
We hope you will join us to connect our hearts to support the families of Bo’s Place though your participation at the luncheon!
Any in-person event will adhere to all current health and safety guidelines. In the event COVID-19 conditions in Houston require, Bo’s Place will transition to a hybrid/virtual format for the Hearts of Hope Luncheon.
