Desert Town Hall was founded in 1993 by Lois Horvitz, a prominent desert philanthropist. An avid golfer, Lois also served on boards at Eisenhower Medical Center and the Betty Ford Center. She was passionate about Desert Town Hall until her passing in 2015. Today, her legacy lives on through the speaker series.

Diamonds receive the ultimate backstage access: meeting the evening speaker at a private reception and receiving a photo with the speaker as a lasting memento.
