ORANGE — “By partnering with B.A.S.S., we welcome the opportunity to not only showcase the scenic waterways around Orange, Texas, as a natural resource, but also the opportunity to highlight the educational and cultural resources provided by the Stark Foundation through its STARK Cultural Venues,” said Walter Riedel, president and CEO of the Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation.
The mission of STARK Cultural Venues is to bring enriching and educational resources to southeastern Texas through four venues: Stark Museum of Art, Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center, The W.H. Stark House and Lutcher Theater.
Several of the venues are planning special events during the tournament days including a laser light spectacle set to the music of Queen at the Lutcher Theater Friday evening.
In addition, the City of Orange will present its annual Art in the Park on March 16 at Stark Park in downtown, just a few blocks from the Elite site.
The Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce will sponsor live music on March 15 and March 16, as well as a festival and carnival, March 14-17, within the Bassmaster Elite Series Expo, which in and of itself is worth checking out due to the sponsor booths and opportunities to meet some of the pros.
We will be there giving out free copies of the new Real Outdoors of Southeast Texas magazine and I will have a booth for a new project I am launching called “Local Lunker”.
We are proud to have had the best coverage with exclusive interviews with the pros for the last six months and will continue to bring you coverage throughout and after the event.
