Sir Jimmie Tucker was elected Emperor 36 of the United Court of the Lone Star Empire. Tucker’s election was announced at Coronation 36, “A Night of Big Bands and Country Swing,” at the Crown Plaza hotel on Saturday Oct, 30.
More than 200 people attended the crowning of Emperor Jimmie. Because no one ran for empress, a regent was expected to be appointed. In an unprecedented move, two regent empresses, Keri Lynn Sommers and Mother Love St. James, were named to assist Emperor Jimmie during his reign.
The UCLSE is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds for other nonprofit groups. Coronation 36 celebrated the accomplishments of Emperor 35 Jeff Germany and Empress 35 Audrey Jo Schwartz, who raised more than $30,000.
That money will be distributed to their beneficiaries on Nov. 20 at the Brick during an event dubbed “Ride the Dragon.” Groups receiving money include AIDS Interfaith Network, Resource Center Dallas’ HIV/AIDS food pantry, the Susan G. Koman Foundation, Health Services of North Texas, and Youth First Texas. Emperor Jimmie and Co-Regent Empresses Keri Lyn and Mother Love will invest their new court that night as well.
