Portrait of a Warrior Memorial Art Gallery:

Ken “The Dauber” Pridgeon started painting while serving in the U.S. Air Force. After leaving the military, he made a career painting billboards in Houston. Ken started the gallery by painting portraits of fallen heroes fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan who were from the great state of Texas, however, he has expanded his mission to include fallen heroes who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, and live across the United States of America. His heart is as big as his passion. The gallery is home to original paintings of which he generously donates a print of each portrait to the fallen heroes’ family. For more information on Ken and how to give to POWMAG, please follow the link.

Boys and Girls Country

Boys and Girls Country was established in 1971 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity whose mission is to change the lives of children from families in crisis by loving and nurturing them in a Christian home environment, raising them to become self-sustaining and contributing adults. Children are from the greater Houston area, which include 11 counties. Located 35 miles northwest of Houston, Boys and Girls Country has capacity to serve 48 boys and 40 girls, ages 5-18, for a total of 88 children at any one time. Residents live on campus in cottages with trained Teaching Parents and attend public school (Waller ISD). The College and Career Program works with 20 resident students who have graduated from high school, although this number varies since participation is based on performance. These students plan to earn a college degree or trade school certificate; enter the military or work at their first job. Boys and Girls Country does not rely on federal or state grants for ongoing support and is not a United Way member agency. Contributions come from caring individuals, businesses, civic groups, churches, and foundations. No child is ever turned away because of their families’ economic status.
