The Jung Center, along with chairs Melanie Gray and Mark Wawro and Carolyn and Oliver Rodz and honorary chairs Drs. Beth and Stuart Yudofsky, is honoring mental health activist and philanthropist Maureen Hackett for her tremendous commitment to supporting individuals and communities, most notably through mental health initiatives. The evening's speaker Delia Ephron has written numerous books, including her latest New York Times bestseller Siracusa, which Publisher's Weekly calls a "brilliant take down of marital and familial pretense." With her sister Nora Ephron, she co-wrote You've Got Mail and was an associate producer of Sleepless in Seattle. Ephron has been published in The Wall Street Journal, O the Oprah Magazine, and New York Magazine, and she is a frequent Op-Ed contributor to The New York Times. Ephron puts a witty and thoughtful spin on navigating life's absurdities, obsessions, and hardships. Funds raised ensure that The Jung Center continues to thrive as a nonprofit organization and unique educational resource providing programming for improved mental health awareness and wellness. For more than 50 years, The Jung Center has offered dynamic and compelling classes on a diverse range of psychological, artistic, and intellectual topics. Each year, through educational programs as well as outreach collaborations with other Houston nonprofits, The Jung Center provides opportunities that help some 20,000 people navigate the ups and downs of everyday life.
