On Wednesday, May 14, 2014, The Menninger Clinic hosted its annual signature luncheon, which featured a candid conversation about mental health with guest speakers Mariel Hemingway and Dr. Brené Brown and honored Ann Gordon Trammell. The event, chaired by Lynda and David Underwood, raised more than $600,000 for patient care, research, education and training programs.
Ann Gordon Trammell was honored for her significant contributions to Menninger, mental health and our community. She was instrumental in helping Menninger realize its vision for the Mental Health Epicenter, which opened in 2012.
More than 800 guests in attendance were captivated by excerpts from Mariel’s new documentary, Running From Crazy, and Dr. Brown’s points on vulnerability, family dynamics and whole-hearted living.
A Private Underwriter Reception, hosted by Bess & Rob Wilson, III, was held the evening before the luncheon at Tony’s.
