TFRW Legislative Day was April 6, 2017. For the new members in our club, Legislative Day is when ladies from clubs all over the State go to Austin to be recognized by both the State House of Representatives and Senate for all the work they do. The wear their Red and it is an amazing site to see.
On Wednesday, April 5 the TFRW Belles and Boots Gala was held. There was a live Auction which raised over thirteen thousand dollars. The money raised will go to Patriot Paws to purchase a service dog for a disabled veteran. Patriot Paws is the philanthropic entity that TFRW will be promoting at the TFRW Convention in Dallas in October, 2017.
On Thursday at the Luncheon another eleven thousand dollars was raised plus other donations which will enable TFRW to furnish one service dog. At the luncheon, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick committed to helping raise another thirty thousand dollars and said if he didn’t get the entire amount he and his wife would donate the rest.
