Don’t miss the 14th Anniversary of the Wild Game Dinner fundraiser scheduled for October 5th in Johnson City at the Blanco County Show Barn beginning at 5:00 PM.

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 20 rifles, shotguns, and a pistol. Also lots of hunting, fishing and camping gear! This support makes it possible for the committee to raffle over $14,400 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 one of a kind guns – a Remington 700 BDL 270 with a Patriotic airbrush design and a Henry 22LR Lever Carbine with John Wayne airbrush design. These guns will be in “100 square raffles” and chances will only be sold during the dinner.
Wayne Salem, President of Salem’s Jewelry in Marble Falls, is again donating a spectacular piece of jewelry for the “Bauble in a Bubble”. One hundred chances will be sold and each participant will receive a “Bauble in a Bubble” koozie. The Game Dinner also includes a Silent Auction which is always popular with the whole family. Sale Committee members are working hard to make this year even better.
The evening would not be complete without the Live Auction.

This “14th 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 13 years they have been able to put over $435,000 into the hands of Blanco County Youth.
The Sale Committee hopes that you will support their endeavor Oct. 5th. To get further information, or make a donation, please call 830-833-5335 or email email@example.com. On line information can be found at lbjcountry.com or facebook.com/wildgamedinner.
