LANB hosts rootin' tootin' gala

-A A +A

Western themed event brought out big spenders

By Carol A. Clark

Cowboys strutted in big boots and blue jeans and painted ladies sashayed in racy red dresses and silky black hose at Friday’s “Round-up Rendezvous” fundraiser for United Way of Northern New Mexico.
Modeled after Santa Fe’s Buckaroo Ball, Danette Clark of Los Alamos National Bank chaired the committee that brought the first “fancy western-styled gala” to Fuller Lodge.
“I want this to be the biggest, best, most successful, most fun event for United Way ever and for it to be the event that raises the most money ever,” Clark said as the evening got underway.
Silent and live auctions provided entertainment and brought in a considerable amount of money. United Way Executive Director Donna Schroeder said the cowpokes ponied up an estimated gross total of $30,000, which is right up there with the organization’s top fundraisers.
“I’m very pleased, Danette and her committee have done an amazing job and I’m excited for Los Alamos that we’re offering something different,” Schroeder said.
LANB Senior Vice President Jill Cook served as emcee and auctioneer for the event.
