Stetsons and Stilettos II benefiting Love For Kids Sept. 8

Love for Kids Inc. is set to host its 8th annual fundraising event at the historic Longhorn Ballroom from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8. The event, Stetsons and Stilettos II, pairs Texas’ premier Red Dirt singer-songwriters with plenty of fine dining and wining–as a list of tasty, top-tier vendors offer scrumptious slates of gourmet goodies. Enjoy some two steppin’ and live music from The Bob Wills Tribute Band from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8 at the famed venue. After the event, Grammy award-winners Asleep at the Wheel will take the stage for a special post-fundraiser concert.

There will also be opportunities to meet local artists, participate in a silent auction, and taste culinary creations by Chef Jeffrey Kollinger of Spice of Life Catering and Tillman’s Roadhouse.

This is not a new event, we have been hosting Palette to Palate since 2010.   It has grown to be a full-fledged Saturday evening soirée includes artist exhibit areas, wine tasting booths, a silent auction, special sponsor seating, live entertainment, and chef’s stations from several local restaurants, serving their signature, most popular appetizers. Our patrons will sample select wines, along with highly notable local chefs’ gourmet cuisine, view and have the opportunity to purchase, original art created by several local artists, and also participate in a silent auction. This event has proven to be an enjoyable, successful evening for all involved. Love For Kids, Inc. anticipates this year’s attendance will be 500 people. We are asking our artists to:

  • Donate 1 piece of artwork to the silent auction.
  • Depending on the size of artwork you can show 4-10 pieces of artwork that can be sold the night of the event.
  • We are requesting  10% donation of any artwork that is sold at the event.
  • Provide your picture, biography and website/Facebook link and logo for placement in the event program. Please share with your client this event.  Deadline is August 31, 2018.
