The Texas State History Museum Foundation has selected two outstanding Texans – philanthropist and business leader Charles Butt and legendary musician Leonardo “Flaco” Jiménez – to receive the History-Making Texan Award at the Texas Independence Day Dinner. The award recognizes living Texas legends whose contributions to the state and the nation have been truly historic and exceptional in scope.

The Texas Independence Day Dinner celebrates the state’s rich cultural heritage and generates support for the Bullock Museum. Nearly 500 business, political and community leaders attend the event each year. Carla and Brad Moran of Lubbock will serve as Chairs and Jan Felts Bullock of Austin will serve as Honorary Chair of the event. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the many educational programs and special projects of the Bullock Museum.
