Good Apple Dinner

The Good Apple

On November 10, Texas Appleseed honored Jennifer and Peter Altabef with the 2021 J. Chrys Dougherty Good Apple Award. Jennifer and Peter are dedicated philanthropists and exemplary leaders within both the private and non-profit sectors. Their impact on the Dallas community and beyond is truly admirable.

Texas Appleseed also presented the 2021 Pro Bono Leadership Award to the outstanding law firm Latham & Watkins LLP for partnering with us to spur positive change. They proved to be an indispensable partner during a tumultuous year. 

Congratulations to our honorees, and thank you to all of our sponsors and attendees for their generous support!
