River Oaks Country Club

Houston would not be the city it is today without Ben Taub’s vision, his dedication to the philanthropic needs of a growing community and his sincere caring for those less fortunate.  His family has continued his legacy, remaining active in many areas of our community. Harris County Hospital District Foundation also keeps his legacy alive through the Ben Taub Humanitarian Award, which honors those philanthropic individuals who have also made significant contributions to Houston.
