Leeza Gibbons to Headline Juliette Fowler Communities’ 2021 Visionary Women Luncheon on November 18


Leeza Gibbons, Emmy Award-Winning TV/radio personality, philanthropist, New York Times best-selling author, and caregiver advocate, returns to Dallas to take the stage as the featured speaker for the 2021 Juliette Fowler Communities’ Visionary Women Luncheon on Thursday, November 18, at noon, at the OMNI Dallas Hotel, 555 S. Lamar Street. AWARE will receive the Visionary Women Award for its dedication to fighting Alzheimer's disease through funding and support of programs, projects, and research. The luncheon featuring Gibbons was previously scheduled for May 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic.

Located on 20 picturesque acres, Juliette Fowler Communities is the only certified I’m Still Here® Center for Excellence in Dementia Care in North Texas and one of only two in Texas. Utilizing the I’m Still Here® approach, a unique paradigm shift in memory care, Fowler’s program employs evidence-based techniques to adapt experiences to an individual’s cognitive abilities and strengths. It is an engagement-focused program connecting with those living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias through abilities that do not diminish with time. By offering families and professionals ways to emotionally connect with loved ones who are still there through communication techniques and life enrichment, this program sparks creativity and engagement, helping them to thrive.

 The luncheon will also feature an art display presented by the Junior League of Dallas (JLD) highlighting work completed by residents with dementia at Fowler Communities through “Artful Awakenings,” a weekly art program which has been led by members of JLD since 2017.

The Visionary Women Luncheon Chair Michelle Feavel announces the 2021 luncheon award recipients: 

AWARE will receive the Visionary Women Award for its philanthropic leadership in support of Alzheimer's care and research.

Deloitte will receive the Erika McKenzie Volunteer Award for its 20 years of volunteer service at Juliette Fowler Communities.

Miranda Sullivan, a recent graduate of Texas Christian University selected by TCU campus ministry, will receive the Juliette Fowler Faith and Service Award. 

Honorary Luncheon Chairs are Mary and Roland Bandy.

Tickets are $200, and sponsorships are available. Contact Jamie Rodgers,, 214-818-0342.  Visit
