Marcie Berry received her Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University and her MBA from the University of Houston. Marcie is married to Robert O. Berry, III and has two children, Robby age 15 and Jake age 13. Born and raised in the city of Houston, Marcie is passionate about supporting the local community. Over the past 18 years, she has served many organizations. Notably, she has served as a volunteer, Board Member, and Executive Committee Member for The Junior League of Houston, Inc.; volunteer and committee Vice Chairman for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo; PTO Officer on the PTOs for her children's schools; as well as having chaired many galas and fundraisers.
Marcie began volunteering for Arthritis Foundation in Houston three years ago. During this time, she met and became friends with three individuals, Rita Beckett, Sarah Cunningham-Hughes and Tucker Beau Hyatt. These individuals, a prestigious attorney, wife and mother; an adolescent girl maturing into a young woman; and a little boy who wants to play soccer and ride his bike like other children, walk different paths, but share a common bond and theme. That theme; being the constant fight to live their lives and help others in spite of their crippling systemic arthritis and need for ongoing risky immune modifying treatments and chemotherapies. Their selfless courage and determination to find a cure and make the world aware of this dreadful disease became the catalyst for Marcie to play a larger role in the fight for a cure for arthritis. As the 2014 Bone Bash Co-Chair she is impassioned to spread the message that arthritis does not discriminate and affects one-in-four Houstonians, including 7,000 children of all races and ages. She hopes you will join her by donating and be a Hero for Healing in the fight to find a cure for arthritis.
