Proceeds from this fundraiser will support the ongoing battle against the 1,500-acre open-pit mine and quarry planned by Vulcan Materials between Bulverde and New Braunfels—just four miles north of Bracken Cave. Bat Conservation International will also receive a portion of the proceeds.

Hors d’oeuvres, beer, and wine begin at 6:30 p.m. A representative of Bracken Cave Preserve will give a bat talk at the cave, and the bats are expected to emerge at approximately 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $90 per person (plus fees). Directions and additional event details will be forwarded following ticket purchase.

Thank you to our sponsors who have graciously donated appetizers and locally grown and brewed flavors of the Hill Country: Dry Comal Creek Vineyards and Winery and Oak Valley Vineyard.

Please join us for an exciting evening you won’t soon forget!
