The Artists & Filmmakers Dinner is a fun-filled gala where there’s no back room and no black ties, just a great party and dinner that celebrates the idea and reality of hope. 45 tables are hosted by 45 legends of Texas film, music, books and more! Michael Barnes has called it “the star-studliest night of the year.”
This year the foundation is honoring Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS Shoes, who has given over 2 million pairs of shoes to kids in the developing world. And the evening includes performances from New York City’s DJ Spooky with the Tosca String Quartet and an all star jam with the incomparable Joe Ely, Charlie Sexton, Shawn Colvin with special guests.
Every guest is seated at a table with a Texas star. Past table hosts have included Willie Nelson, Owen Wilson, Kyle Chandler, Nobel laureate Steve Weinberg, Bill Paxton, Ricardo Chavira, Lyle Lovett, Kinky Friedman and many more!
