The Missouri City Exchange Club will hold its annual Barbecue and Country & Western Dance, “Fist Full Of Dollars,” on Oct. 7.
The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m., in the Missouri City Community Center. Wade Andrew Smith and Driftwood will be the headlining musical guest.
The Country & Western Dance typically raises over $24,000 dollars through ticket sales, live and silent auctions, and donations. Proceeds from the event will benefit scholarships for local students. For ticket information or become a sponsor, contact Julia Hardy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently the Exchange Club of Missouri City held its annual scholarship breakfast at the Quail Valley City Centre and awarded $50,000 dollars in scholarships to local students.
“This was an historical giving event for the club,” said Steve Wells, club president.
The Missouri City Exchange Club was founded in 1984 by a group of golfers. They held meetings in the Quail Valley Country Club with a mission to build a strong community, serve underprivileged children, and help those who have been abused or neglected.
The club has become one of the pre-eminent community charters in the greater Houston area bringing together community leaders, business owners, and the people they serve, for viable solutions to building a strong community.
They raise over $100,000 each year through events like the Golf-A-Thon and St. Patty’s Scramble Golf Tournament and Fist Full of Dollars Barbecue & Dance. They generously support local charities in their community like the ESCAPE Family Resource Center (learntoparent.org) and Champions Kids Camp (championskidscamp.org), financially and by donating their time, energy, and expertise to work on special projects.
The National Project for the Exchange Club is Child Abuse Prevention. Other programs include Americanism, Community Service, and Youth. The Exchange Club of Missouri City is proud to be a member of the National Exchange Club, which consists of 700 clubs with over 20,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.
The Exchange Club of Missouri City meets twice each month at the Quail Valley City Centre in Missouri City. The first meeting of the month is a lunch on the second Thursday, and the second meeting is a breakfast on the fourth Thursday.
