More than 400 cowboys and cowgirls saddled up in support of DePelchin and the Lone Star State at DePelchin's 2013 annual luncheon held in April. Themed "Shaping the Lone Star State of Mind," the event spotlighted the issue of children’s mental health in Texas and helped raise more than $276,000.
DePelchin's luncheon featured an all-star lineup, including keynote speaker Dan Wilford, past president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Healthcare System; country artist and DePelchin adoptee Kyle Hutton; and Kezia DePelchin Award recipient Nancy Powell Moore. Event highlights included a check presentation by the Texas Bowl to DePelchin for more than $100,000. During its seven-year history with DePelchin, the Texas Bowl has donated nearly $600,000 in charitable proceeds from the game.
DePelchin wishes to thank its numerous underwriters, donors and volunteers for helping to make the 2013 luncheon a bronco-busting success!
