By popular demand, the Jewel Charity Men’s Encore Event was held once again at a private collection of classic cars owned by a Fort Worth Family.
This collection of more than 100 cars ranged from museum quality Dusenbergs, Packards, Marmans and Cadillacs to perfectly restored Aston-Martins, Ferraris, Bentleys, Shelby racecars and hot-rods. Johnny Rutherford’s winning Indy 500 race car was on display as well.
This year, Joel Sawyer chaired this Jewel Charity function, which was sponsored by U. S. Trust.
More than 200 men enjoyed heavy hors d'oeuvres catered by the City Club. Jewel Charity members were on hand to sell Contribution tickets. Those attendees who purchased $500 or more of Contribution tickets were entered into a drawing for fabulous door prizes, including a $4,000 Gift Certificate for the Eisenman Jewels Watch Collection, Weekend use of Mercedes-Benz SLK or ML (Value $750) provided by Park Place Motorcars, $500 Gift Certificates from Del Friscos’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Eddie V’s, Bailey’s, and City Club. Box Seats to the 2012 Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, 2 parking passes, and a $250 Gift Certificate at Reata at the Rodeo were also included on the prize list.
More than $60,000 was raised for Cook Children's Medical Center.
