Also joining us at the Dobie Dichos event will be cowboy singer/songwriter Gil Prather! Gil will entertain the audiences with his original cowboy songs during the dinner hour and again at the intermission during the stories and readings.

You won't want to miss this inaugural event presented by Storyfest! Proceeds will go toward the Dobie/West Performing Arts Theatre renovation project in George West.
