More than 400 partygoers saddled up for the 24th annual Roundup for Autism Pegasus Ball benefitting Autism Treatment Center of Texas. Honorary chairmen Amie and David Simpson, chairs Dawn and Ryan Neufeld, host Barry Corbin, and Heather and Allen Russell ‹ recipients of this year's Roundup Spirit Award ‹ kicked the evening into gear, as guests lassoed items from the live auction, including an original painting, Impressions of Life by artist Mindy Page. Lynn Thrower and the Lone Star Pony Express presented event founder Bobby Norris (son of Robert C. Morris, the original Marlboro Man, also in attendance) with a saddlebag filled with donations totaling more than $33,000, bringing the weekend's total fund-raising efforts to more than $400,000. Tapping their toes to Domino Effect: James Brisco, Jeff and Jayme Tollett, Tracy Branch, George Page, Amy Hubbs, Mary Lynn, and Dan McClendon.
