George Clooney to speak at Houston lecture series

Post by laetval on Fri Mar 02 2012, 19:48

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

George Clooney, the Academy Award winning actor and humanitarian, is scheduled to be the featured speaker for Brilliant Lecture Series’ May 3 event.
The Brilliant Lecture Series, a Houston nonprofit organization, brings international leaders, philanthropists and entrepreneurs to Houston to help inspire and support new ideas.
The nonprofit said it chose Clooney to speak because he has been recognized for his humanitarian work throughout the world. He has been involved with initiatives including the Satellite Sentinel Project, a satellite imagery analysis project; the Not on our Watch Project, which brings attention to international crises; and the United Nations , at which he is a messenger of peace.
The Brilliant Lecture Series event featuring Clooney is scheduled to take place at the Brown Theatre at Wortham Center. Tickets are open to the public, and start at prices of $25 and are priced up to $150.

Oh Dear....HANDS again.... lol!



Three cowboys are sitting around a campfire, out on a lonesome Texas prarie, each with the bravado for which cowboys are famous.

A night of tall tales begins.

The first one says, "I must be the meanest, toughest cowboy there is. Why, just the other day a bull got loose in the corral and gored six men before I wrestled it to the ground by the horns with my bare hands."

The second cowboy can't stand to be bested.
"Why that's nothing.
I was walking down the trail yesterday and a fifteen-foot rattlesnake slid out from under a rock and made a move for me.
I grabbed that snake with my bare hands, bit its head off and sucked the poison down in one gulp.
And I'm still here today."

The third cowboy remained silent.....silently stirring the coals
with his hands.

This looks as if it's along the same lines as the one in Sydney. $2500 for benefit dinner at the Brilliant Lectures Series.

Great opportunity to him to raise awareness for Satellite Sentinel, south Sudan and Darfur and all the other causes close to his heart.

Wonder if Jon Prendergast will be with him.

Let's hope there are a lot more

Hi Everyone
If any of you make it to Texas and get within shouting distance of GC, please tell him theres a lass in Australia who's absolutely certain that hes been waiting for me his whole life!!! HA HA.
Pros:
Can't marry him (my partner says it would be bigamy!)
Not interested in more kiddies
Love travel, animals, motorbikes, fast cars, movies, eating in fancy restaurants (well heck any eatery will do me)
Would happily sit there for days on end watching all his movies with him (with one or 2 exceptions)
Beyond discrete

Cons:
Not 5 foot 10
Not blond
Dont prance around in my underwear
Can't wrestle
Camera shy (that could be a real con)
Dont like being told what to do or what to say (that could become a problem, oh well)

Well anyway its worth a shot, maybe he needs someone who actually lives in the real world for a change!! Give Flowers

George Clooney to hold lecture in Houston May 3 2012

Post by Katiedot on Mon Apr 02 2012, 07:08

George is apparently appearing on 3 May as featured speaker on May 3 at the Brown Theatre in Houston. Published on 1 March, so I guess not an April Fool:

GEORGE CLOONEY TO SPEAK IN HOUSTON FOR THE BRILLIANT LECTURE SERIES

Conversations with Brilliance hosts Oscar-Winning Actor and Humanitarian

HOUSTON (March 1, 2012) –Today The Brilliant Lecture Series announces Academy Award winning actor and international humanitarian George Clooney will be the featured speaker on May 3 at the Brown Theatre in Wortham Center. Clooney’s appearance will be the first time he has spoken in this format in North America. The Brilliant Lecture Series is a Houston, Texas not-for-profit organization whose aim is to support young people and their families, particularly students from underrepresented portions of society in their journey through life.

“George Clooney is one of the most recognizable actors in the world and his humanitarian work is second to none,” said Scott Brogan, Founding Director of The Brilliant Lecture Series. “I couldn't be more thrilled to present Mr. Clooney to our audience on May 3.”

True to its mission, founder Scott Brogan, brings someone ‘brilliant’ from international leaders, prize-winning authors and actors, to eminent scientists and business leaders to inspire Houstonians. The Conversations with Brilliance series offers Houstonians a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the world’s greatest minds to inspire leadership in Houston’s youth and their families.

George Clooney has devoted his time off screen to humanitarian causes, including initiating the Satellite Sentinel Project, which combines satellite imagery analysis and field reports with Google’s Map Maker technology to help deter mass atrocities in areas of crisis. He is also the co-founder of the Not on Our Watch Project, which works to bring global attention to international crises and give voice to their victims. A United Nations messenger of peace since 2008, Clooney has been a tireless advocate for resolving the ongoing genocide in Darfur, having spoken to the UN and held fundraisers on behalf of the crisis. In 2007, Clooney (along with fellow Not on Our Watch founder Don Cheadle) was awarded with the Summit Peace Award by the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, recognizing his commitment to directing attention to the conflict in Darfur.

Clooney has starred in such films as the Coen brothers’ O Brother, Where Art Thou? The Ocean’s series; Syriana, for which he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor; Michael Clayton; Up in the Air; The Men Who Stare at Goats; and The American. He also collaborated with his father on the documentary Darfur Now and narrated and co-executive produced the documentary Sand and Sorrow. Equal parts Hollywood star, down-to-earth everyman, and devoted humanitarian, George Clooney delights and inspires audiences with his intelligence, candor, passion, and humor.

Tickets for the lecture start at $25 up to $150. For more information, contact 713.974.1335 or visit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
