THE SCENE: The Alamo in San Antonio was the perfect setting for an evening to celebrate the historical legends who have helped create the State of Texas. This celebratory evening featured musical performances by Texas icons, and honored the actors who portray legendary Texans in the History Channel miniseries Texas Rising.
THE VIBE: As VIP guests and the celebrity cast of Texas Rising appeared for the red carpet premiere, the energy and excitement built up for the benefit event as guests anticipated a viewing of the miniseries that aired this summer. After the screening, guests were treated to a concert featuring Kris Kristofferson and legendary musician Phil Collins, who is an avid collector of Texas and Alamo memorabilia.
THE CAUSE: Proceeds from the event went to the Alamo Endowment, which is dedicated to defending the shrine of Texas liberty and preserving its future. Thanks to the Alamo Endowment, efforts to build a renewed Alamo Visitor’s Center to house the Phil Collins collection are now underway.
