The Stock Show and Rodeo’s “Cowgirls Live Forever Scholarship Luncheon and Fashion Show” has been an unequivocal force for good these past twelve years, raising over $1.6 million towards college scholarships and honoring those women who demonstrate “independence, courage, and resilience.” This year’s show, held on January 30th at the Witte Museum’s Mays Family Center, carried on that tradition with honoree Bonnie Korbel, whose list of philanthropic accomplishments barely fit on the program.
Julian Gold sponsored the event and provided the fashion for both the titular cowgirls and the cowboys that accompanied them down the runway. The 380 guests, meanwhile, enjoyed catering by San Antonio’s veteran RK Group, including boneless short ribs and cornbread muffins. The show even got a bit of star power courtesy of Miss Rodeo Texas, who walked the runway herself.
Last year alone, a dozen students got the opportunities of a lifetime. I dare you, the reader, to help them do even better next year.
