CURRENTS – Feb/March 2020
Welcome to the New Year fellow CCA members! Thank you for the great support in 2019, y’all did fantastic. With your support, the Austin Chapter was able to have another record-breaking year in 2019. The 2020 Austin Banquet is just around the corner. Mark your calendar, purchase your table, and plan to rally for your organization on May 7, 2020. The Austin Board has already started work to make things bigger and better than ever for CCA Austin’s 41st Banquet! We are putting together a great lineup of top-notch food, drinks for all and quality entertainment on stage. Top bidders and lucky ticket holders will have the opportunity to win exotic trips, tons of guns, fishing gear, Yetis, boats, trucks and over $100,000 worth of raffle items. With all this on the agenda the evening will prove to be exciting. Go to ccaaustin.org for table, individual and boat ticket sales. Seating and boat tickets for this banquet are sure to sell out, so don’t delay in purchasing!
A special thanks goes out to all of our generous sponsors. It’s through their commitment to CCA that the Austin Banquet shines like no other.
