Cattlebarron's Ball and my wonderful husband!

This year Richard chaired (in charge of) the Cattlebarron's Ball for The Woodlands.   For those of you who don't know it is a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society, ACS.  The previous 2 years he chaired Relay For Life (another fundraiser for ACS) which somehow "qualified" him to chair this ball. 

It was tons of work and hundreds of man hours went into the planning it but with the help of his excellent committee it went off with a bang. 

A week before there was a VIP party for the key contributors of the ball hosted by La Trattoria Tuscano an awesome little Italian restaurant here in The Woodlands.

The awesome committee that worked oh so hard!
Richard giving his thank you speech.


The Cattlebarron's Ball was hosted by Buck Grass Stables in Magnolia and the actual ball was in the horse arena! Greg Dugat from Prestigious Events http://www.perentals.net/ pulled off a very elaborate cowboy sheik ambiance.  Mary Kristen Photography provided her services and excellent eye for ALL the photos taken here!  http://www.marykristen.com/

There was a green screen where you could take pictures with western theme's behind you.
A little square dancing.

Richard's big speech.

The horse arena that doesn't look so much like an arena anymore.


Pretty cool emblem on the ground.  By the way the entire arena was covered by plywood and hay.

Our Edward Jones friends Darwin and Leah Presley.


Photo booth complete with a little entertainment.

The band- Chris Braade.

There wasn't enough parking so Prestigious Events offered this cool limo from the parking lot to the arena.

Let me tell you how much anguish went in to dressing cowboy sheik.  Richard's parents mailed us their boots, Maurice's had the perfect dress and some leftover beads from the flea market in Santa Fe (so dangerous for me- thank goodness it's very far away) completed the look. 
I was so very proud of Richard as he coordinated this elaborate event and how he always manages to juggle 800 balls in the air all at once.  He is an awesome talented man!
