The Family Place will have actress Christina Ricci as guest speaker at its annual Trailblazer Awards.
Ricci is an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG nominee known for her roles in movies, like The Addams Family and Sleepy Hollow, and the shows Yellowjackets and Wednesday. She was recently nominated for a primetime Emmy for her role in Yellowjackets and starred in the 2010 Broadway production, Time Stands Still.
“We are ecstatic to have Christina Ricci join us this year for our Texas Trailblazer Awards,” Mimi Crume Sterling, CEO of The Family Place, said in a press release. “Christina has been a trailblazer in Hollywood through her stellar career while advocating to stop family violence.”
The Trailblazer Awards Luncheon has been an annual event honoring those who have impacted positive change in communities since 1996. The luncheon raises funds for The Family Place.
Texas Trailblazer Awards Luncheon will be held Sept. 23 at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
