Another Kitefest in the Books

Saturday was our 7th Annual Sertoma Kitefest and we were blessed with a beautiful day and record crowd. The proceeds for the event go to help hearing impaired kids in central Texas.

10th Leper
For the first time we had live music at the event and it added a lot to the atmosphere. The band was named 10th Leper and they covered a few 70s and 80s pop tunes, but mostly played Christian rock. Their first number was "Amazing Grace," played to the tune of Jimmy Hendrix "Foxy Lady."

 We also added a few games for the kids to play when they tired of flying kites. Our raffle was a big hit, with the Tony Romo autographed photo being the hot item. (No comments from any of you haters!) Baylor football tickets were also popular, which amazes me. I guess it's true what they say, "Win and they will come."

Several of the vendors ran out of food, so I take that as a good sign!

I've been Chairman of the club (Heart of Texas Sertoma Club) for the past two years, and President the two years proceeding. This was our last major event before the new officers take over in July and I'm looking forward to ceding the reins. It's been a lot of work, but well worth it.

Here are a few more pictures from the Kitefest.

Only 100 shy of a full cast for the movie :)
We even had people flying kites!
