A Historic Night for IICF

The third annual Lone Star Legends Benefit was a momentous night for the Texas/Southeast Division. The February 5th event held at the Omni Dallas Hotel was a presidential affair as George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, was recognized as the 2015 Lone Star Legend Honoree. With more 700 guests in attendance representing fifteen states, the event raised a record-breaking $505,833 in grants to benefit local community nonprofits through IICF’s Community Grants Program.

“I applaud all in the audience tonight and your support of IICF, adhering to the call to whom much is given, much is required. Your generosity is helping your communities, and it is important as you continue to succeed to give back to worthy causes such as this one,” said President Bush at the event.


The funds raised through the Lone Star Legends Benefit will support eighteen grant awards to regional nonprofit organizations based across Texas and the Southeastern United States. Ranging from $10,000 to $50,000, the community grants support organizations that champion causes pertaining to children, education, and veterans.
