Wow, what a night! On Thursday, April 7 we held our Annual CCA fundraising banquet at the Austin County Fairgrounds in Bellville. The turnout was amazing we had around 500 people the best banquet in years.
The night started with an outstanding meal of prime rib, shrimp, chicken breast and all the trimmings catered by Mikeskas BBQ, thanks to the owner, David Divin, and his crew for serving a great meal. The main event of the night was our live auction. There were prints, fishing and hunting trips and many more great items to bid on. Thanks to Mark Switzer of Switzer Auction Services for being our auctioneer. There was the silent auction that had some outstanding items thanks to CCA, Academy Sports + Outdoors and others that donated items.
We also some great games for the night, one of the favorites was the cap and card game, each cap had a playing card on it that represents a gun if your card is drawn you win that gun and there were 7 guns. One of the other games was the high-end raffle when you purchase a ticket from the girls and deposit it in the bucket with a chance to win one of five items. They were a Benelli 12ga, Tikka 3006, Savage 22, Waterloo, Lews rod and reel and a Yeti Roadie 24.
Also, the golden ticket game was a hit, throughout the live auction there were five 65 qt Yeti coolers out for bid and at the end of the auction if your cooler was drawn you win a CCA logo Savage tactical 306 riffle with a CCA loge leather case. The third game was the poker chip challenge where only 100 chips were sold and you pay the price of the chip’s number you draw. If your chip is then drawn, you won a Weatherly 300 mg bronze twisted barrel with a s/s gun case.
The chapter is planning our 19th annual kids fishing tournament this August or September at Don and Patrica Walters Lake in Cat Spring. It is open to the public and everything is free. There are prizes, food and drinks just bring your fishing pole and lawn chair. The date will be announced later.
I would like to thank everyone that attended our banquet and also thanks to Taylor Rieck, our representative of CCA, and his crew for the awesome job they did, to the board members, and everybody that helped. Thanks to all the sponsors and donors that made this banquet a great success. See you all next year!
