Northeast Hospital Foundation to honor Insperity's Corinn Price
- Written by Jeffry Tupa
The Northeast Hospital Foundation recently selected Corinn Price, director of community involvement at Insperity, as honoree of the foundation’s 2012 “In the Pink of Health” luncheon to be held October 19. The announcement was made by Norman Funderburk, foundation president, during a surprise visit to Insperity’s corporate headquarters in Kingwood. “This year, the Northeast Hospital Foundation unanimously selected Corinn Price as our 2012 honoree,” said Funderburk. “It’s pretty obvious why we would want to honor Corinn. She has always been a strong supporter of the Foundation. As director of community involvement for Insperity, she has grown Insperity’s corporate philanthropy program from local community involvement efforts in Kingwood and the Greater Houston area to a nationwide initiative comprised of more than 55 Volunteer Council members throughout the country.” Price sits on several community boards and most recently helped to create the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce’s new Leadership Lake Houston course, as well as its new Business Communications program, BizCom. “We’re honoring Corinn for her support of the Foundation,” Funderburk told Price, “and also recognizing her for what she gives back to our community.” Price and her husband, Joe, are the parents of two children and live in Kingwood. Funderburk also announced that proceeds from the 2012 Luncheon will support the Foundation’s community programs and the Hospital’s cancer programs providing much needed breakthroughs in technology as well as education resources for the Hospital’s cancer patients. The first “In the Pink of Health” luncheon held five years ago honored Joyce White, a founder of Project Mammogram and long-time breast cancer educator with Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital. Funderburk also announced that the 2012 luncheon special guest speaker will be Diana Jordan, author, speaker, motivator, stand-up comedian and breast cancer survivor. The foundation, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, was established in 1987 to support the programs of Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital, the area’s only not-for-profit hospital. Since its founding, the foundation has raised more than $3 million to benefit thousands of people in the Humble area. It provides “seed money” to develop and nurture new programs, to acquire new equipment and to provide community education and screening programs for Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital.
