Falkirk Cultural Center, San Rafael, CA

Presented by ITP International

Perhaps we'll never know how far the path can go, how much a human being can truly achieve,
until we realize that the ultimate reward is not a gold medal but the path itself.
George Leonard

Join us for our 11th Annual For the Love of ITP benefit gala, May 7th, at The Falkirk Mansion in San Rafael and on Zoom. This year's deserving honorees are Jerry and Linda Patchen, members of ITP Houston since 2005. 
Jerry Patchen served on the ITPI Board for eight years and has generously gifted ITPI his legal counsel over the years. One of Houston’s most respected lawyers, his work for the Native American Church led to acts of Congress that protected the religious rituals and rights to use peyote. The Texas State Bar Association honored him with a Lifetime Achievement Award. As a dedicated practitioner, Jerry’s daily prayers and rituals, Kata practice, and 2-mile walks restore him and inspire us all.
An active member of the ITP community and frequent program organizer for ITP Houston, Linda recently resumed creating sculptural art, honoring an affirmation she created a few years ago. “It’s never too late to do what you love, and honor those you love, too,” says Linda.
Linda and Jerry’s sense of purpose, spirit, and generosity manifest themselves daily, in many ways, often behind the scenes. Their sense of humor and can-do attitude set a joyful, loving tone. Together they role model living ITP, which they credit for enriching their lives with health, strength, resilience, and boundless energy.  
We are delighted to demonstrate our love and respect for Jerry and Linda and to honor them for all their contributions. Please join us for this celebratory occasion where Jerry & Linda will receive the George & Annie Leonard Service Award for outstanding service and contribution to ITP International and the world.
