Jeans & Jewels 2010

Saddle Up for NAM!

Wonderful life-sized fiberglass horses arrived at Vintage Park on June 23rd. The horses are being painted by local artists selected by a panel of judges and will soon be displayed throughout the community. During the time the horses are being painted, they will be “stabled” at Vintage Park.


For $3,500, individuals or businesses may display a painted horse on their property for several weeks leading up to the Jeans & Jewels Gala, at which the horse will be auctioned off. The sponsorship also includes a half page ad in the gala program.


For $10,000, individuals or businesses may order a custom painted horse, which also includes the donor’s name on a plaque at the base of the horse and a full page ad in the gala program. The custom horses belong to their sponsors, and will not be auctioned off.


It’s not just a stampede…it’s going to be a NAMpede! For info, please contact Tanecia at 281-885-4608 or at
