“Without question, 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone,” said Janis Burke, Harris County – Houston Sports Authority CEO, “but there is still much to be celebrated and with the help of our amazing partners, led by Insperity, we think we’ve figured out a safe and very cool way to do just that.”

“The Houston Sports Awards always presents a unique opportunity for Insperity to honor our hometown heroes and help recognize the contributions made by these outstanding honorees,” Jay Mincks, Insperity executive vice president sales and marketing, said. “Sports has the power to bring people together, and it is our pleasure to not only take part as the presenting sponsor of this incredible event, but to make it a part of our Insperity Invitational week of events.”

“I’m actually really excited to plan this year’s show.” said Patti Smith, Executive Producer of the Houston Sports Awards, “To have a star-studded golf tournament by day, and then roll all that ‘Golf Glam’ over to the driving range for Sports Awards in the evening, is going to be amazing!”
