Help Preserve Our Hill Country Environment! Join us for our fifth 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 a fabulous four-course meal with local libations 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!
Tickets go on sale January 1! 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). Tickets are $150 per person (plus fees). $90 of each ticket is tax-deductible.
