Last month, The Junior League of Dallas (JLD) hosted its fifth annual Milestones Luncheon at the Hilton Anatole Hotel.
At the event, Dr. Kimberly J. Yamanouchi was named the 2015-2016 Sustainer of the Year. The JLD applauded Yamanouchi for “her activism in the community, her commitment to health and medicine, and her charitable work with organizations like Children’s Medical Center, Dallas County Medical Alliance, Genesis Women’s Shelter and Interfaith Housing.”
The event also featured a panel discussion with three past Linz Award recipients — Lindalyn Adams, Ruth Sharp Altshuler and Deedie Rose. For more than eight decades, “the Linz Award has been Dallas’ most prestigious honor given to a citizen or married couple whose civic or humanitarian efforts created the greatest benefit to the City of Dallas.”
Jenna Bush Hager, contributing correspondent on NBC’s Today show and daughter of our neighbor, former president George W. Bush, moderated the discussion.
