On the evening of October 29th, we pulled on our best boots, shined our belt buckes and kicked off our fundraising for THC Youth Education Initiatives - and earned more than $20,000 for the Texas Historical Commission! Perini's Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap was the perfect venue for A Night on the Last Frontier, an evening of longhorns, chuck wagons, buffalo, and great beef! It was a rip-roarin' good time for a worthy cause, and we thank our sponsors and guests for making it happen!
