Important Luncheon Update

On behalf of The Rose, our staff, our Board of Directors, and our 2020 Luncheon Committee, we send our very best wishes that you and yours are well and finding ways to manage during this incredibly difficult time.

As a healthcare organization, we have no choice but to cancel our Everything’s Coming Up Roses Luncheon, scheduled for June 3, 2020, at River Oaks Country Club.  We could not in good conscience host a gathering in such perilous times.  The risks are simply too high.

We know so many people are dealing with very real life and death concerns right now, and our hearts go out to all those families who are facing difficult decisions and unimaginable situations.

Please make sure the guests at your table are also aware of this change. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at

Until this time is behind us, we remain thankful for the blessing of your presence in our lives.

Best wishes,

Dorothy Gibbons, CEO & Co-Founder of The Rose
Nancy Craig, Chair, 2020 Luncheon Committee

Thank You to our Honorees


Frances Arnoult


Jacque Ogilvie

"Of course, we are disappointed. We had such exciting plans to recognize our honorees— Frances Arnoult and Jacque Ogilvie—but both of these special women have assured us that canceling the luncheon is the right decision.  We are so grateful for their supportive and generous hearts."
