A chic crowd of Family Place supporters recently descended on the Goss-Michael Foundation for the big reveal: the recipients of the Texas Trailblazer Awards 2013.

The front room made quite a statement about the history of organization and its mission, with a display of photographs from the 1994 Dallas Morning News Pulitzer Prize-winning series that examined the epidemic of violence against women in many nations.

In the back room, charitable guests — including Family Place executive director Paige Flink, Joyce Goss, Julie and Steve Rado, JB Hayes, Jennifer Burns, Melissa Sherrill, Stephanie and Travis Hollman, Holly Pellham Davis, Sharon Henley, and Steve and Barbara Durham perused and purchased artwork created by Family Place clients as they congratulated future honorees Gloria Campos (Texas Trailblazer Award), Darlene Blakey (Real-Life Hero Award) and Kimberly Clark (Advocacy Award).

The Family Place also will recognize two students, Hannah Hinton and Karim Bryant, with the Youth Service Award and Scholarship at the 2013 Texas Trailblazers Award Luncheon, themed "Be The Connection To End Abuse," on Thursday, September 26, at the Omni Dallas. The featured speaker will be Cynthia Lowen, writer and producer of Bully, the first feature documentary exposing the hidden lives of bullied children.

Tickets and sponsorships for the luncheon can be purchased online.
