Brazosport Health Foundation Raised $150,000 at Bluebonnet Social Club
With 700 people in attendance at the Bluebonnet Social Club, Brazosport Health Foundation excitedly announced they profited $150,000 in the midst of Clay Walker’s performance on Friday, April 11. The funds raised are designated for the Cornerstone of Caring Capital Campaign and the construction of the new Mike and Leslie Lowrey Emergency Services Pavilion.
The multi-platinum country music recording artist, Clay Walker, again rocked the stage as community members two-stepped to many of his classic hits. Before the show, attendees enjoyed hot of the grill food from Pappas Catering, fulfilled their sweet tooth cravings with desserts by Talk About Good, and satisfied their taste buds with a selection of beer and wine.
Raffle prize winners were announced. Joan and James Bell won the Texas Two Step Hunting Trip, donated by the Infinity Group and Freeport Welding. Diane O’Callaghan won the Custom Boot Weekend Trip, donated by Nalco Champion. The last raffle prize, the Mystery Dream Weekend, went to Trent Allen.
A surprise guitar signed by Clay Walker was auctioned off to the highest bidder. This year, Clay Walker personalized the guitar after the show. Although it was a battle at the beginning, Julie Verret - Walker won the guitar for $7,000, no relationship to Clay Walker!
As a non-profit organization, Brazosport Regional Health System greatly benefits from events like the Bluebonnet Social Club. The Lowrey Emergency Services Pavilion is expected to serve approximately 32,000 people on an annual basis. The Level III Trauma Center is based right here in the community to provide essential critical care.
