CROSBY – Crosby Education Foundation was found at a new palatial setting last Saturday raising money for extraordinary learning experiences for Crosby ISD students.
The venue was perfect for attendees and a chance to meet with the gracious hostess Megan Schuchart of Southern Lace Estates to explain the capacity of the newly opened venue for weddings and events.
A live auction by the guys from the Auctioneers of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo drew about $31,000 with items including 8 days and seven nights in Aruba, a Drive and Shoot a real WWII Sherman Tank and more exotic experiences including a night at the Crawfish Shack with about 20 guests. There was sponsorship for classes. There was a raffle, wine draw, gift card draw and jewelry drawing that continued until time expired.
Most of all the new setting was impressive, already tapped to host the Bras For The Cause Gala, Southern Lace Estates is nestled within 100 forested acres of secluded surroundings displays that romantic ambiance for special days. Amenities include rental of private secluded estates from 8:00 a.m. until midnight with use of the estate for bridal photos (by appointment) a host of seating and table capabilities and reception tables with cozy wedding decor rentals. The spacious surroundings can hold up to 700 seating capacity in the indoor reception venue that housed Crosby Education Foundation, and then there are upstairs balcony and conversation areas and outdoor wrap around porches and a covered drop off area to keep the ladies dry in the event of rain as happened last Saturday.
An outdoor ceremony site and chapel are also available.
