Stetsons and Stilettos Event Raises Over $30,000 for Stanley Elementary

October 19, 2009

Stanley Elementary's PTA raised over $30,000 at its Stetsons and Stilettos for the Stampede fall fundraiser Oct. 9 at Cross Creek Ranch. Radio personality Kevin Kline from the New 93Q Morning Zoo served as the celebrity master of ceremonies.

Cross Creek Ranch and Trendmaker Homes hosted the event at their welcome center. Decked out in everything from western attire to stilettos, guests enjoyed food donated from six local restaurants with live music from Gene Neptune and Joe Kilpatrick. The auction included six highly sought after live auction items and over 150 silent auction items donated from local businesses and various Stanley parents and faculty.

"It was amazing to see all the volunteers work tirelessly to make this event possible in just a few short months," said PTA President Courtney Doyle.

The money raised will benefit the students at Stanley Elementary, which is Katy ISD's newest school. The campus opened this past August to students living in Cross Creek Ranch, Westheimer Lakes North and Cinco Ranch Southwest.
