Tickets are now being sold for the Annual Mason County Habitat for Humanity Spring Benefit. This year’s gala will be held on Saturday, May 18th at the Jacques-Hurley Farm at Camp Air.
Habitat President Paul Branch noted this year’s location is significant because Don Jacques and his late wife, Wanda, were very instrumental in getting Habitat for Humanity started in Mason eleven years ago.
Once again the top Texas wineries have been selected to showcase their finest wines, and attendees will be tasting the many diverse varieties. In addition, a gourmet menu has been developed that carries on the tradition of this event.
A tremendous list of auction items have been donated for both the live and silent auctions. Among the items to be sold include a week long stay at a condo in Pagosa Springs, Colorado; a golf package at the TPC golf course in San Antonio, including accomodations at the St. Anthony Wyndham hotel and dinner at a local restaurant; a gourmet Cajun dinner prepared by Elliott and Doris Courtright, a three night stay in Ruidosa; and a flight in an antique, classic 1940 Piper J-3 Cub. In addition, numerous other weekend packages, art and jewelry items will be sold.
Tickets can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce office, Sandstone Cellars, The Mane Attraction, Mason Gallery and Commercial Bank or by calling the Habitat office at 347-9591. Tickets can also be purchased in Brady at Kit’s Hair and Beauty Salon and at the Barrel House.
Mark your calendars now. Don’t miss the social event of the spring!
