Big-deal Dallas altruists gathered at the Hyatt Regency Dallas to honor their brethren at the 28th annual National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon hosted by the greater Dallas chapter of the Association of the Fundraising Professionals.

"We are proud to pay tribute to these outstanding individuals who exhibit incredible civic leadership and philanthropy," said Dallas National Philanthropy Day Chair Kimberly Humphries. "They are stewarding our communities, from charity to impact."

Charitable guests — including Nancy Marcus, Jeff Morris, Gail Thomas, Karen Waller, Heather Washburne, Al Hill Jr. and Nicole Small — joined Humphries and co-chair Julia Nicol in congratulating the seven 2013 award recipients:
