Being on the board of directors of Pin Oaks, a member of the Pin Oak Club, and in charge of the distribution of ribbons and trophies certainly does lend itself to a lot of hard work all year long to pull off a show in the magnitude of Pin Oak. It also lends itself to some wonderful events and fundraisers as well. One of the most favorite annual events is the one held every December for the past few years at Valobra Jewelry Store in Highland Village in Houston, Texas. This past December 5, 2012, proved to be another great event in the Christmas spirit as well.
