Wow! Another year and another fantastic adventure with The Social Book and its owners Scott Evans, Jeff Henry and Sami Shbeeb. I’m so proud of how they continue to maintain what I’ve always considered it to be—an invaluable resource book for the city. Thanks to their untiring efforts and creativity, The Book just gets better and better.
I look forward each year to presenting The Social Book “Houston Treasures.” While I created the book in 1996, this very special section was added only six years ago. Grateful as I am and always have been to live in Houston with so many amazing individuals who give so much of themselves and their resources for the betterment of the city, it is my great pleasure to recognize these outstanding Houstonians. The Social Book “Houston Treasures” award is presented to individuals, chosen by a select committee of The Social Book, who have demonstrated an exemplary, lifelong dedication and commitment to serving the community with unprecedented generosity of spirit, time, energy, resources, creativity and love.
I want to thank all the sponsors and subscribers to The Social Book, many of whom have traveled with us through the years, whose loyalty makes this resource available to the community. Congratulations and a sincere “thank you” to all the 2010 Social Book’s “Houston Treasures!” What a gift you are to the city!”
With much love,
