On Wednesday, February 19, past and present contributors to the Lone Star Stomp met for the annual kick-off luncheon. This year’s gathering was graciously hosted by Billie Wendt in her lovely Richmond home.
“The Lone Star Stomp is the spring fundraiser for the Fort Bend County Museum Association. What better way to kick-off preparations for the event than to invite our long time supporters to meet the Honorary Chairs and Event Committee over lunch! We truly appreciate all that our supporters do for the Museum Association each year,” said Claire Rogers, Executive Director.
Although kick-off attendees brought in a variety of items, there is still a need for more donations for this important fundraising gala. Stomp organizers are actively gathering donations for the live, silent, and Silver Star auctions. Donations can be brought to the McFarlane House, located at 410 Jackson Street in Richmond, during regular business hours.
Proceeds from Lone Star Stomp XXV benefit the Fort Bend County Museum Association and its mission to teach and preserve Texas history. A variety of underwriting and sponsorship opportunities are available. Individual tickets are $65 each, and tables for eight can be reserved for $600. To get involved in keeping Texas History alive for future generations to enjoy, email the Stomp Team at LoneStarStomp@FortBendMuseum.org or call (281) 342-1256.
