Do you have plans September 9th? Well you do now! The Thirsty Texan (21135 TX-249, Houston, TX 77070) will be playing host to the 2nd Annual Miss Boots For Troops Combat Boot Fashion Show.
Miss Boots For Troops – presented by: The Peterson Agency – is a unique live auction runway show featuring models that will take their shot at strolling down the runway while wearing some very special combat boots donated by service members who have deployed in defense of our great nation. These boots have served in places such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and even the flight decks of U.S. Navy vessels. Each pair of boots has a very special, inspiring story behind them. As the boots are modeled, the service members story about his boots will be read aloud to all in attendance. Ultimately, each pair will be live-auctioned off to the highest bidder in the crowd. Whoever the highest bidder is will be presented the pair of combat boots they won featured in a shadow box with the service member’s story framed along with a photo of the service member who wore them. (Additional prizes such as coolers, T.V.’s and more will be won with each wining pair of boots)
“Last year I attended and I left the event with one of the special pairs of boots in a shadow box. The box is now in my office and people ask me about it all the time,” says Jeff Peterson of the Peterson Agency – Miss BFT’s 2017 title sponsor. “This year, I wanted to be a part of (Miss BFT) in a bigger way.”
All money raised from the combat boot live auction will go directly towards BFT’s Care Package Program and, furthermore, the lucky lady who wore the boots with the highest bid will be crowned Miss Boots For Troops 2017 and win a $500 cash prize!
The organization would like to invite the public to join them in honoring these heroes and supporting the men and women who serve and protect our country each day. As mentioned, the event will be held at The Thirsty Texan Bar and Grill on September 9th from 6 p.m. to midnight. Limited tables available stage side to watch the show up close.
