August 6 - The Politically Incorrect Dinner – League City
by Mary Proudy
The 5th Annual North Galveston County Chamber’s Politically Incorrect Dinner on August 6, 2010 at the South Shore Harbour Country Club was a great success!! The premise of the Politically Incorrect Dinner (PID) is to raise money for the North Galveston County Chamber (NGCCC) to fund scholarships for the Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD, Dickinson Independent School District (DISD, Bay Area Christian School and the Pine Drive Christian School .
Prior to the PID, the NGCCC would fund scholarships from of its operating budget. Five years ago, I was NGCCC chairman of the board and decided that the chamber would have a fund raiser for scholarships. Upon asking various elected officials to be the celebrity waiters for the event, the name for then became the Politically Incorrect Dinner.
This year’s waiters were: Galveston County Judge Jim Yarbrough, City of League City Mayor Tony Randall, City of Dickinson City Manager Julie Johnston, League City Councilman Tim Paulissen, City of Seabrook Mayor Gary Renola, Former City of Seabrook Mayor Robin Riley, Galveston County Clerk Dwight Sullivan, Candidate for Galveston County Treasure Pam Schwertner, Galveston County District Attorney Kurt Sistrunk, Galveston County Court 3 Judge Roy Quintanilla, Candidate for Galveston County Court 2 Suzanne Schwab Radcliffe, Sabrina Schwertner, Galveston County Probate Judge Phil Roberts, and Candidate for Galveston County Judge Mark Henry.
Everyone attending the event is given a tip card to tip their waiter. PID attendees must pay for their napkins, utensils, condiments, etc., and songs, dances or poetry performed by their waiter. There is a contest amongst the waiters to raise the most money. Please note: none of the funds collected by elected officials are retained by them. The North Galveston County Chamber is extremely proud that most of the funds collected at the Politically Incorrect Dinner are for scholarships for the two school districts and two private schools. NGCCC supports its future leaders with the funds raised from the PID.
The PID table sponsors were: Black Rose Steel, AMOCO FCU, Gay Buick GMC KIA, Digitex, Gulf Coast Educators FCU, City of Kemah, Mary Proudy, Clear Creek ISD Educational/Clear Creek ISD, Mike Milo, Mainland Medical Center, BP North America, and Dickinson ISD Education Foundation.
Opera singer Barbara Padilla was a surprise guest to the PID. Barbara was the 2009’s America’s Got Talent 1st runner up. Barbara graciously sang several songs to help raise money for the PID.
Mike Milo is the North Galveston County Chamber Chairman of the Board. Theresa Graham is the North Galveston County Chamber President. Mary Proudy is the Politically Incorrect Dinner Chairperson. The DJ was John Garza, the Minister of Music – St. Mary’s Catholic Church League City. The NGCCC website is www.northgalvestoncountychamber.com and the phone number is 281-534-4380.
Eddie and I were both on vacation the week of the Politically Incorrect Dinner. We’d like to express our sincere appreciation to Mary Proudy for the write up on the event and to Barbara Ward our ‘official’ photographer. Thank you, ladies! Enjoy!
