Professional Bail Bondsmen Fundraiser for Be An Angel

Over 200 “Angels” gathered at the Pine Forest Country Club Saturday night, 12-3-2011 where the Professional Bail Bondsmen of Harris County held their annual fundraiser to help the “Be An Angel” charity.   Dale Coburn, President of the Professional Bail Bondsmen of Harris County greeted everyone as they arrived making all feel welcome. During their 2010 fundraiser, their Bail Bondsmen raised enough funds for a new playground.

They had a generous number of diverse items for their auction, from planned excursions through the California wine country to offshore fishing trips. There were penguins, a wooden moose head and giant stuffed animals. They had jewelry for all tastes and budgets, and unique items such as a pocket knife in the shape of a woman’s’ leg in a dress boot.  There was a gavel from the Texas House and a magnificent silver eagle, along with luggage from split cowhide. Paintings and artwork of all sizes to appeal to discriminating taste, a cork screw and a cowgirl hat. We also saw a flying pig full of money and a snake charmers basket. (This did not come with the snake.) A foot ball used in a professional game and signed by Dan Pastorini, former quarterback for the Houston Oilers,  and custom quilted Christmas tree skirt and “stockings to hang by the chimney” with care.

Glenn Strickland did the auctioneer work. He was amusing while keeping the items flowing and getting the most for every item. He had two lovely “Elves” helping him and a young lady keeping up with who bought what and for how much.  A fishing trip was bringing extra high bidding from two gentlemen. They had run it up to $1600 and it seemed one might give way when President Dale Coburn stepped in and stopped the bidding. Now Glenn is a big guy and wasn’t too happy over being stopped. Dale quickly got both bidders to agree to pay sixteen hundred dollars for a trip. He then donated a second trip to the auction. The crowd responded with thunderous applause. Everyone knew that this group is very serious about raising money for the “Be An Angel” charity.

Michael and Randy Kubosh sold sixty-four seats themselves. There were numerous Republican elected officials and candidates. Harris County District Clerk Chris Daniels was there, as well as newly appointed Harris County Precinct Four Commissioner “Cactus” Jack Cagle. HCDE board member Michael Wolfe attended. Allen Fletcher state Rep for district 130 and Dan Huberty State Rep for district 127 joined in on the fun. State Senator Dan Patrick, an ardent supporter, was hospitalized and unable to attend, but was certainly there in spirit.

Louis Guthrie and Harold Heuszel (listed in alphabetical order) running for Harris County Sheriff were in attendance with their wives. Ken Shortreed, running for Judge of the 215 Civil District Court and his wife attended, also Kristen Guiney running for Judge of the 179 District Court. Also, special thanks goes out to Renee Magee, who is running for Judge of the 337 District Court. Renee was presented a plaque from the Texas Swimmers Hall of Fame in Austin and could not attend, graciously giving her tickets to my wife and I. Thanks Renee!

The bottom line is this; the Professional Bail Bondsmen of Harris County is a great group of people who are truly doing good for the community. This was my first year but not my last. When one of the Kubosh brothers comes around next year asking you to buy a ticket, please do. They raised nearly forty thousand dollars at this event and every penny went to the “Be An Angel” charity.
