As First Lady of Texas, Laura Bush promoted the Rainbow Room concept, and thanks to her leadership, there is now a Rainbow Room in every Texas county. The Rainbow Room of Rockwall County was established in 1999.
We are a working board of volunteers. We have no paid staff, no building expense, and very little operating expense, so that 98% of every dollar donated to us goes directly to the children.
