San José Clinic honors United Way of Greater Houston at successful annual Art with Heart gala
On Saturday, April 16, nearly 400 guests gathered as San José Clinic held its annual Art with Heart event. This year, the fundraising gala took place at TMCx, the Texas Medical Center’s accelerator.
“Art with Heart is a wonderful opportunity for the health care and charitable communities to gather each year, and I am pleased to say that 2016 was another fine year for the event,” shared Paule Anne Lewis, president and CEO of San José Clinic. “We love to welcome our dedicated supporters and new friends to this very moving, exciting evening. It was a fantastic night of philanthropy, celebrating partnership and supporting the uninsured and underserved in our community.”
Art with Heart 2016 featured a silent auction of more than 150 pieces of museum-quality art and beautiful jewelry, as well as live auction items focused on direct patient care. At this year’s event, San José Clinic honored United Way of Greater Houston with the Portrait of Compassion in recognition of over 90 years of support of the Clinic and the Houston community.
“We deeply appreciate this special recognition and are proud of our longstanding partnership with San José Clinic,” said Anna M. Babin, president and CEO, United Way of Greater Houston. “The partnership between San José Clinic and the United Way is living proof that compassion is alive and well in our community.”
This year’s event is still receiving donations, which go towards providing the underserved of Houston with quality healthcare. For more information about San José Clinic, Houston’s premiere safety-net clinic, visit www.sanjoseclinic.org
