Inspiration fulfilled sonner than expected

Well I did it…I went ahead and worked on a piece of Hat Jewelry yesterday anyway. I had intended to put this on a back burner for a while, but as it turns out I was invited to a charity event that I’m seriously considering attending. If it works out that I can attend, I don’t intend on being a vendor, but I will be donating my first piece of Hat Jewelry whether it be for auction or prize will be left for others to decide.

The Jewelry:


The Event:




Kicaster Country Store, the Southern Strangers, and White Lightning Liquor Store are thrilled to announce and host the 2ND annual StrangerFest, the area’s largest music festival. On Saturday, September 14th, the Strangers and a bunch of their friends will invade Kicaster for a full evening of great live music, great food, tournaments, dancing, and ice-cold beverages. This huge event will be a major fundraiser for the Greater Wilson County Youth Foundation.

The Greater Wilson County Youth Foundation is a joint effort between Kicaster Country Store and White Lightning Liquor, and is an organization dedicated to supporting area youth at surrounding livestock shows and auctions.

While not completely final, StrangerFest 2013 entertainment line-up and other details are…

Patio Stage (All acoustic):
3:00 to 4:00 – Will Owen Gage and Kyle Reed
4:15 to 5:15 – Mario Perez and Jorge Gallegos
5:30 to 6:30 – Rex Griffeth

Main Stage (All full-bands):
7:00 to 8:15 – Will Arrington Band
8:30 to 9:45 – Charlie Hager and the Captain Legendary Band
10:00 to 11:15 – James Pardo and the Underestimated
11:30 to 1:00am – The Southern Strangers

We also have some great activities planned…

BBQ – We’ll be selling BBQ plates with all the trimmings at the event with proceeds benefitting the foundation.

Brisket Cook-Off – There will be a cash entry fee with net proceeds donated to the foundation. Contact Roger Velez at  210-393-9463  for more information.

Washer Tournament – There will be a cash entry fee with net proceeds donated to the foundation.

Vendor Booths – Jewelry, jumping castles, stuff for kids, etc. All booth registration fees collected will be donated to the foundation.

Silent Auction – Another benefit for the foundation. Tons of great items to bid on…from food to fishing rods.

StrangerFest is open to the public and there will be no gate charge. Rather, to gain entry, we ask that patrons make a free will donation with all gate proceeds benefiting the foundation.

StrangerFest is made possible by the generosity of the bands above, our customers, supporters, sponsors, and volunteers. Thanks also to Tommy Baird and the Southern Strangers for allowing Kicaster to host the event. We do need sponsors!…Every contribution, no matter how large or small is greatly appreciated. We also need raffle and silent auction items. If you would like to donate something to the raffle or auction, please call Kevin Brown at  210-413-1185  or just drop the item off at Kicaster Country Store, 2239 FM 3432, Adkins, TX.
