Good Apple Event

The Good Apple

Hosted Virtual Receptions 5:30 PM
Livestream Celebration 6:00 PM

Join us for the Good Apple virtual celebration on Thursday, November 12. We are proud to honor Senator Kirk Watson, Founding Dean of the University of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs, with the 2020 J. Chrys Dougherty Good Apple Award for his exemplary leadership, effectiveness as a public servant, and commitment to improving the lives of Texans.

Texas Appleseed is also pleased to present the 2020 Pro Bono Leadership Awards to two outstanding law firms — Davis, Cedillo & Mendoza, Inc. and Fish & Richardson P.C. — for partnering with us to spur positive change. 

In celebration of our honorees and Texas Appleseed's mission, we plan to bring you an evening of entertainment, hors d'oeuvres, and classic cocktails. Enjoy the festivities of the Good Apple celebration at home, while connecting with colleagues and friends virtually.
