2014 HER Awards presented
to seven excellent role models
The Eighth Annual HER Awards Luncheon was held August 20 at the La Colombe d’Or Mansion and attended by a sell-out crowd of family, friends and fans of the 2014 honorees.
Welcoming the guests to the grand event was Beverly Denver, publisher of Houston Woman Magazine, and others from her staff.
The HER Awards Program, created by Houston Woman Magazine, honors excellent role models in our community. The awards are presented in seven categories to women who inspire those around them.

Each of the honorees was nominated by a reader of Houston Woman Magazine and ultimately chosen for recognition by the publication.
