Plano, TX  (November 12, 2019) – Whitley Penn is pleased to announce that Venus McGinnis, Plano Office Manager, received the Promise of One Award from Susan G. Komen.

The Susan G. Komen North & West Texas Affiliates semiannually designate two outstanding individuals who go above and beyond in terms of fundraising and/or volunteerism.  This person must have been affiliated with Komen for a minimum of three years and show the true embodiment of their mission to end breast cancer forever.

McGinnis became involved with Susan G. Komen in 1999, after losing her mother to breast cancer the previous year. She began in Dallas, and now McGinnis participates annually at the Plano Race for the Cure.

“Thanks to the leadership of Venus and her passionate, tight-knit community at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, their team has raised more than $61,000 for the Race for the Cure to be invested in local breast health services and national research since 2011,” said Komen North & West Texas Executive Director, Mary Frances Hoover.  “She is making an immediate and life-saving impact on the women and men in our community who need our help the most.”

“We are very proud to have Venus selected by the North Texas Komen Affiliate for the Promise of One Award. Her dedication to this cause and the community is a great example of the values that we hold at Whitley Penn,” stated Matthew Reiter, Partner-in-Charge of the Plano Office.
