Volunteers Abigail Tonry, Liana Hillendahl, and Betsy Duplechin (pictured, from left) are preparing for the Blue Bird Circle’s 100th anniversary gala celebration. The long-anticipated event is scheduled for March 11 at The Ballroom at Bayou Place and is chaired by Blue Bird volunteer Sarah Burchfield. Founded in 1923, the Blue Bird Circle is a group of more than 300 women volunteers dedicated to supporting the needs of children with neurological disorders who are being treated at Texas Children’s Hospital. The 100th anniversary celebration honors Texas Children’s Hospital’s Dr. Huda Zoghbi for her extensive and life-changing research with pediatric neurological disorders. Guests will enjoy dinner, dancing to the GROOVES band, a live auction, and silent auction. In honor of the milestone, the Blue Bird Circle is making a $10 million gift to the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital. See thebluebirdcircle.com.
