Help Preserve Our Hill Country Environment! Join us for our fourth annual fundraising dinner and auction—at the historic Knibbe Ranch in Spring Branch, one of the few remaining Century Heritage ranches in Texas. The evening is dedicated to raising funds for the continued legal fight against the proposed Vulcan quarry and bringing awareness to the negative impacts of poorly supervised aggregate mining and quarry operations in Texas.

Enjoy fabulous Texas BBQ, local libations, music, and more! Silent and live auctions will top off the evening as we toast everything that we love about our one-of-a-kind Hill Country—all while supporting a great cause!

All proceeds will support legal counsel and scientific experts needed for the ongoing battle against the proposed Vulcan quarry and TCEQ. Attire: bolos and boots (Hill Country dressy). Ticket sales have ended. Thanks for your support!
