We are so excited to present the First Social Event of National.  We promise the evening will be filled with awesome fundraising Raffle Items, Contests and just pure Texas Hospitality.

You can visit 2 stations on that pass. Additional visits will require an additional ticket.

Per COVID-19 protocol, all food will be served by Catering Attendants. Cash Bars will be set-up in the Main Hall throughout the Welcome Party and Sweepstakes Spectacular Events.
