The Hunt Legacy Continues with Bryan's House Spring Luncheon


"We are delighted to announce that the Honorary Chair for the Bryan's House Spring Everyone Has Special Needs luncheon, awards and fashion show is Haven Sands Heinrichs", said event Chair and immediate past Board President, Dr. Lisa Genecov.  Haven is a trustee for The Moozie Foundation, which was created for the grandchildren of Caroline Rose Hunt in 2014.

"The Moozie Foundation has supported Bryan's House this past year with a grant to establish the Heroes Infant Program - designed to specifically care for medically at-risk infants ages 0-18 months of age, that may have been impacted or expose to HIV/AIDS, or have another chronic daily health-education or therapy need" - stated Executive Director, Abigail Erickson. Haven is the daughter of Ramona Stark Sands and the late John Bunker Sands. Haven lives in Austin, Texas with her husband Travis and children, Stark (age 8) and Tallulah (age 6).
