As the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo approaches and local
families continue the debates, bargains, and occasional fistfights over who
gets to go on which date, the organization itself is quietly giving back.
Tuesday, January 22nd saw the Witte Museum’s Mays Family Center host
the SASSR Educational Foundation’s 14th annual Cowgirls Live Forever
Scholarship Luncheon & Fashion Show.
Families and organizations from across South Texas came
together to donate a dozen collegiate scholarships for students all around the State,
including a pair from right here in San Antonio. Participants in the luncheon,
which also honored Janell Kleberg for her incredible career and charity work,
enjoyed an eye-popping food menu, which featured what may the greatest
combination of words in the history of the English language: tamale-stuffed
Bandera quail topped with chorizo gravy.
The titular fashion show, put together by RWorld Production,
showcased a massive variety of outfits tailored around the theme “What to Wear
to Rodeo.” The champs over at Style
Lush TV put together a nice highlight reel for those interested. You
