“We are thrilled to be celebrating our fifth anniversary event in support of such an extraordinary organization as Casa de Esperanza,” said Lisa Fredrickson, publisher of Fort Bend Focus Magazine. “Securing our future by providing for the welfare of our children is a cause very close to our hearts at Fort Bend Focus, and the Fort Bend County Program needs our support to continue caring for our greatest asset as a society: our children.” This year’s fifth anniversary event will also shine the spotlight on the women who have previously received the designation as a JEWEL of Fort Bend. They are: 2008 JEWELS Carole Brown, Dee Koch, Tami McGuire, Billie Wendt and KK West; 2009 JEWELS Billie Neuhaus, Lizz Sansone, Ann Smith, May W. Tape and Donna Kay Tucker; 2010 JEWELS Carolyn Banfield, Peggy Duggan, Brigit Engleman, Lynn Halford and Cassandra Went; and 2011 JEWELS Doris Gurecky, Pat Hebert, Cari Middaugh, Judy Schmid and Lucia Street. While the event will be the highlight of Fort Bend Focus Honors the JEWELS of Fort Bend, the September magazine will feature a beautiful spread showcasing photos and biographies of the five JEWELS along with sponsors of the event and a yearbook photo of all twenty-five JEWELS. Distributed directly to Fort Bend homes each month, as well as in rack distribution at businesses and retailers throughout the county, the special Fort Bend Focus Honors the JEWELS of Fort Bend section will pay homage to these special women and their community service.

“Because of the efforts of the wonderful, caring individuals who devote so much of their time and talent to our philanthropies, especially these twenty-five women, our community is a better place,” said Fredrickson. “Fort Bend Focus Magazine is proud to honor their commitment to Fort Bend County and be able to give back to the community that has so graciously supported us.” This year, Fort Bend Focus Honors the JEWELS of Fort Bend will include a raffle to further benefit Casa de Esperanza. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the raffle will benefit the non-profit agency. Tickets for the raffle are $25 each and are available for pre-purchase or for purchase at the event. Fort Bend Focus Honors the JEWELS of Fort Bend is open to the public and will be held at Safari Texas Ranch in Richmond from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm on Thursday, September 20th. In addition to the Luncheon and Style Show, event sponsors will be treated to a private Champagne Reception with the JEWELS prior to the event. Sponsors to date include Emerald Sponsor Safari Texas Ranch; Ruby Sponsors Alisa Murray Photography, Hardee Investment Group, J Loggins Jewelers, Pamela Printing and Salon Eben and Day Spa; Corporate May W. Tape, DDS and Sapphire Sponsor Southern Sister Designs. Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $7,500 and include magazine advertising. Individual tickets are available for $65.
