• Baylor women hosting home tour to raise scholarship funds for BU students

    BUWC-TC Home Tour 2011 flyerThe various Baylor Network groups around the country gather for a variety of purposes — to network Baylor graduates for business, to bring together Bears in support of BU’s various athletic programs, or simply to promote fellowship among members of the Baylor family. But in addition to those purposes, some of the groups have decided to not only look back on their memorable times at Baylor, but also to look ahead to the next generation of Baylor Bears, raising funds to support scholarships for students of today and tomorrow.

    Some of those groups have found very creative ways to raise scholarship support. For example, the Baylor Women’s Council of Tarrant County (that’s in and around Fort Worth, for those of you not from North Texas) will host its second annual Love a Bear Valentine Home Tour on Feb. 13. The public is invited for a rare exhibition of Paigebrook Farm in Westlake, an 11,500-square-foot marvel designed by renowned architect Charles Dilbeck in 1938 for the then-president of the Dallas Morning News.

    The event will also feature a variety of local vendors offering Valentine-themed items for purchase as part of a unique Valentine experience. Tickets are available online, and 100% of proceeds go to the scholarship fund. (Click here to read the story of one current student who has benefited from a Baylor Women’s Network scholarship.)

    Sic ’em, Baylor women of Tarrant County and all our Network supporters!
