Annual Luncheon

Each year, The Menninger Clinic’s Annual Signature Luncheon brings together the Greater Houston community to increase awareness of mental health issues and raise crucial funding for The Clinic’s research, training, and outreach programs.
The 14th Annual Signature Luncheon will be held May 9 at the Hilton Houston-Post Oak hotel and chaired by Tejuana Edmond and Jennifer Hanson. Emmy Award-winning actor Joe Pantoliano will serve as keynote speaker for the event. The YMCA of Greater Houston also will be honored for their commitment to helping address critical needs in youth mental health.
Pantoliano is best known for his roles in “The Sopranos,” “The Matrix,” and “The Goonies,” but after struggling for years with addiction, and later receiving a diagnosis of clinical depression, he took on his greatest role yet as mental health advocate. He is the founder of "No Kidding? Me, Too!" — a non-profit organization dedicated to mobilizing the entertainment industry to educate the public about mental illness. In a casual and intimate conversation, luncheon guests will hear from Pantoliano about his work and personal mental health journey.
Virtual and in-person tickets are now available online. For more information about the luncheon, contact Special Events and Donor Relations Manager Charlotte Fostey at or 713-275-5617.
