South Texas Charity Quail Hunts, Inc.

Since 1995, South Texans and some noted celebrities have gathered for a weekend in January to hunt, dine, bid, celebrate and most importantly raise money. The impressive event has raised more than $7 million dollars.  Each year proceeds from this weekend event benefit CHRISTUS Spohn Kleberg Hospital, the Cesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute and the King Ranch Management Institute.  Thanks South Texas Celebrity Weekend participants for your generosity to the South Texas community.

Frank Horlock, Stephen "Tio" Kleberg, and Gus Canales
