Don’t miss the 13th Anniversary of the Wild Game Dinner fundraiser scheduled for October 6th in Johnson City at the Blanco County Show Barn beginning at 5:00 PM. Game Dinner tickets are available for $15.00 per person. Included in the price will be the best wild game you have ever eaten, door prize chance, and dance until midnight to The Mike Clifford Band. Can’t beat that!
A limited number of reserved tables are available for $250, which includes 8 dinner tickets. Call Peggy, 830-833-5335, to check availability.
Raffle tickets are being sold for $5.00 (you do not have to be present to win). Generous local businesses and citizens help the Sale Committee by sponsoring the 50 raffle items, including a “must see” variety of 19 rifles and shotguns, and also lots of hunting, fishing, and camping gear. This support makes it possible for the committee to raffle over $14,500 in items throughout the evening to numerous lucky individuals.
Those attending the dinner will be able to participate in the “Pick of the Raffle,” and also buy chances to win a one-of-a-kind gun – Winchester Model 70 SS Featherweight with a Patriotic Airbrush design. This gun will be in a “100 square raffle”, and chances will only be sold during the dinner.
Wayne Salem, President of Salem’s Jewelry in Marble Falls, has donated a Half Carat Diamond Pendant Necklace for the “Bauble in a Bubble”. One hundred tickets will be sold and each participant will receive a Bauble in a Bubble “Goes Wild” koozie. The Game Dinner also includes a Silent Auction, which is always popular with the whole family, and Sale Committee members are working hard to make this year even better.
The evening would not be complete without the Live Auction. This year’s guns are a Benelli Ultralight 28 Gauge, Winchester Model 70 SS Featherweight with UT Airbrush design, Winchester Model 70 SS Featherweight with A&M Airbrush design, Kimber 84L Classic Select Grade 270 Win, Kimber 84M Classic SS 308 Win, Henry Golden Boy 22LR “Historic Town Edition”, and Sig Sauer 1911 22LR Dark Earth Pistol.

This “13th Annual Wild Game Dinner” promises to be a lot of fun and for a wonderful cause – supporting Blanco County youth at the stock show. Following the annual stock show in January, the Sale Committee has in the past added onto the auction prices, raising all livestock projects up to the average of their category. In just 12 years, they have been able to put over $385,000 into the hands of Blanco County Youth.
The Sale Committee hopes that you will support their endeavor Oct. 6th. To get further information or make a donation, please call 830-833-5335 or email . Online information can be found at lbjcountry.com or facebook.com/wildgamedinner.
