Wild Woman Weekend Earns $40,000 for Local Non-Profits
Wednesday, June 4, 2014 • Posted June 6, 2014

The Blanco Non-Profit Coalition, otherwise know as Wild Woman Weekend, is dishing out again to four non-profits in Blanco. This time they are dishing up $40,000. That is an increase of $12,000 from last year. Thank you to all of the volunteers and the Blanco community for making this second event even more successful than the first one.

On June 2nd, Cyndy Granberg Hounsell, treasurer of BNPC, presented checks for $10,000 to each of the non-profits: Marilynn Lageman, Friends of the State Park; Linda Nash, Blanco Library, Inc.; Andree Barns, Old Blanco County Courthouse Preservation Society; Gem of the Hills Senior Citizens Community Center. These organizations work hard to support the citizens of Blanco, and these funds will support their efforts.

We loved dishing out seconds, and cannot wait to dip up thirds! Wild Woman Weekend has started planning for their third ultimate gal-pal road event to be held the second weekend of April 2015. With such a fantastic track record and with Blanco women working tirelessly for their community, the expectations are high that the achievements will continue the third time around. Mark your calendars and come join the fun. Ladies if you would like to join with other women in our community to help this action packed weekend achieve even greater heights, contact Connie Barron at or Bette Vest at, and they will be glad to put your talents to work for the benefit of the Blanco Non-Profit Coalition.
