What: Young Friends of Yellowstone Academy sixth annual "Stomping of the Divots" fundraiser.
Where: Houston Polo Club.

Kudos to the young community individuals who almost doubled last year's proceeds by bringing in $79,000, which goes directly to support Yellowstone students, who are economically disadvantaged, with a high quality faith-based education.
Contributing to the event's success were auction chairs Elizabeth and Adam Wilhite.
