2022 EMM Luncheon Success

The 13th Annual Each Moment Matters Luncheon (EMM) held on September 23, raised more than $600,000 for the Faith Presbyterian Hospice Caring Fund (The Caring Fund), supporting benevolent care for unfunded patients, children’s bereavement services and specialized services known as the “Faith Difference”, including music therapy, massage therapy and pet therapy.

Accomplished philanthropic volunteers, Tucker Enthoven and Julie Ford, co-chaired the signature fundraising event. The mother/daughter duo share a personal connection to Faith Presbyterian Hospice because they cared for a close family friend.

More than 500 guests filled the beautifully decorated Chantilly Ballroom at the Hilton Anatole to hear from featured speaker Dr. BJ Miller. In addition to being a hospice and palliative care physician, Dr. Miller is well known for his incredibly popular TED Talk “What Really Matters at the End of Life.” For the luncheon, his thought-provoking keynote message suggested that healing is often greater than curing, and he encouraged audience members to practice discernment over judgement. He reminded us that life is precious and grief is good. “What makes anything precious but that it ends.” – BJ Miller

In addition to the inspirational speaker, the Each Moment Matters Luncheon recognized seven impactful individuals for their meaningful service contributions to the greater Dallas community. The 2022 EMM honorees included: Ben Casey Jr. (posthumous), Sandra Esquivel, Walter J. Levy, Richard Miles, Jadona Sides, Brenda Snitzer and Darrell Thompson.
