Cindi Harwood Rose
HOUSTON -- Cindi Harwood Rose started volunteer work at an early age.
As a student at Bellaire High School, she volunteered at Texas Children's Hospital, where she would do portraits and silhouettes of the cancer patients. After graduating from the University of Texas, she traveled the world doing silhouette profiles, in person, for Mohamed Ali, Queen Elizabeth, Elvis Presley and many others.
Cindi has been honored for her community work by many groups including the Awty International School and the American Diabetes Association.
She has chaired numerous galas including those for the Women's Hospital and the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Commission. She currently serves on the board for the Houston Grand Opera, Baylor Partnership and the University of Houston Moore's School of Music.
In addition, she and her husband, Dr. Franklin Rose founded the Rose Ribbon Foundation, which offers free post-cancer reconstruction and counseling for the uninsured.
Cindi also sculpts, appeared in the soon to be aired reality TV series "The Great Raise," and recently opened the Utopia Medspa in Uptown Park. Cindi and her husband have two children, Erica and Benjamin, who both attend University of Houston law school.
