Houston Public Relations Community Invited to Support National Kidney Foundation in Honor of David Monroe

I'm sharing a special request with the Houston public relations community this evening from Elly Trickett, deputy editor of PR Week, on behalf of the National Kidney Foundation.

Elly is the fiancée of David Monroe, a veteran of the Houston public relations community, who passed away on Sept. 26, 2004 from an aneurysm. He was 31. David was born with a kidney defect, and after several surgeries as a newborn, led a full and healthy life. In his early 20s, he had a kidney transplant.

In Houston, David worked at de La Garza PR, and then went in-house to work first for Himalaya, and then for Cornell Companies. During this time he also was active in PRSA Houston, and volunteered his PR services to the Southeast Texas chapter of the National Kidney Foundation.

Elly, along with David’s sister, Rhonda Kelly, are leading a team of people to walk in the National Kidney Foundation's Southeast Texas chapter walk in Sam Houston Park on Sunday Sept. 18, 2005 in David’s name.

To walk with Rhonda and Elly on Team David, please go to and register, and enter “David Monroe” in the team name section. Then e-mail Elly at
Elly.Trickett AT to let her know that you will be joining them.

For those who would like to contribute, but are unable to come to the walk, there is a dedicated fundraising website to making donations in David’s name, at
