Ron Stone Foundation
A truly memorable evening was held in honor of the late Ron Stone, a true Texan. “Goodnight Neighbors” was held at the Hilton Americas hotel for 400 guests on a brisk November evening. Governor Rick Perry was in attendance along with former Governor Mark White as recipients of the inaugural Ron Stone Texas Legacy Award. The guests enjoyed their dinner while Ron’s former colleagues and friends gave personal tributes to him along with memorable clips from his TV show, The Eyes of Texas. Shake Russell, singer and songwriter, gave a touching performance of The Eyes of Texas theme song “Traveln’ Texas.” Afterwards, Clint Black gave a musical tribute to Ron by performing meaningful and beautiful songs. All of the proceeds from the evening benefited the Ron Stone Foundation for the Enhancement and Study of Texas History.
