Texas women are ... well ... just a breed apart. Proof positive with one special group - Texas Women for the Arts. We're 250-strong from all corners of the state who pool our donations, each year, to support programs that make the arts accessible to Texas children.
At our meeting in Ft. Worth this week, we doled out more than 20 grants totaling some $250,000 ... yes, a quarter of a million dollars for visual arts, performing and musical arts education and programs across Texas. That's for this year alone. Our annual meeting is always hosted by members in a different Texas town ... no tax dollars involved ... and we revive our enthusiasm for the mission. Cowtown was a fun and fruitful meeting. And next year, we're already planning for the gathering right here in Houston.
