Western Heritage Awards Banquet Slated for March 18


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Big doings are on tap March 18 at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center. Celebrities and civilians will mix at the annual Western Heritage Awards banquet at which the Cowboy Hall will present its Wrangler Awards to western writers, film makers, musicians, television personalities, and film stars, all of whom have done something outstanding to promote our western heritage.

Master of ceremonies will be Michael Martin Murphy, pop-country singer and songwriter, who will perform a medley of his songs during the banquet and awards ceremony.

Tickets to the dinner and program at the Cowboy Hall are $50 per person which also includes a private reception in the museum galleries for the opening of an exhibit of Native American pottery titled "Vessels of Grace." Reservations may be made by calling the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center.

The motion picture, "Young Guns," starring Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips and Charlie Sheen, will receive the Western Heritage Award in the theatrical motion picture category. The directors, producers and principal actors will receive bronze Wrangler awards at the banquet.

The pottery exhibit will open to the public on March 19. . .

- The Virginia Slims of Oklahoma tennis tourney is on this week and, for the fourth year, Gary Gordon of Samuel Gordon Jewelers is having a jewelry show at the tournament, which is also sponsored by IGA. Reservations are necessary for the champagne buffet and showing which will be Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Santa Fe Club where the tournament is being played.

Gary Gordon has a real "biggie" coming up March 19 and 20. He's bringing genius jewelry designer Henry Dunay and his fabulous collection to town. Dunay often has been called the Faberge of the 20th century.

The jewelry collection will be shown at Remington Park on Sunday, the 19th, and Gary's hosting a special reception on Monday, March 20, from noon until 2 p.m. so people can meet and chat with Dunay. During the reception at the May Avenue store, models in fashions from Ruth Meyers, Inc. will show off Dunay's jewelry.

The public is welcome to come and see the jewels which will be on display all that day. . .

- U.S. Rep. Mickey Edwards, R-Okla., will be guest speaker at a reception Friday honoring the U.S.S. Oklahoma City's sailor of the year. The event, at the Kirkpatrick Center, had been announced previously as a banquet and was changed to a reception due to a scheduling conflict.

Oklahoma City Mayor Ronald J. Norick and the Oklahoma City Council of the Navy League are co-hosting the 5:30 until 7 p.m. reception. Special guests will be the submarine's new captain, CDR Jim Holoway, and about 15 members of the nuclear sub bearing Oklahoma City's name.

The sailor of the year, S.T.S.2 Andrew Wayne Hammer, will be presented with a plaque recognizing his accomplishment and his name will be placed on a larger plaque to be on permanent display at the Kirkpatrick Center. . .
