The 22nd Annual Houston Hospice Butterfly Luncheon, benefiting the Butterfly Program for pediatric hospice patients and their families, is scheduled for March 24 at the Junior League of Houston. The Butterfly Luncheon committee consists of Sally Rice, Catherine Randall, Katherine Lucke, and Robin Burke, who are coordinating this year’s event. Luncheon guests will hear from the Hampton family who lost their beloved son and brother, Jake, who was cared for by the Butterfly team. (For more on the Hampton family, read Our Brother Jake by Michelle Groogan, published in April 2022.) Pictured at last year’s Butterfly Luncheon are (from left) Houston Hospice board member Al Gatmaitan and wife, Nancy, and Monica and Wallis Hampton. See
