The Central Texas Water Coalition is hosting its second annual Golf and Gala fundraising event. The dinner gala will be Sunday, May 17, 2015 at The Reserve at Lake Travis, featuring live music with Bob Schneider, celebrity guests and golfers, a silent auction, a cocktail hour with beer by Infamous Brewing, and dinner by Café Blue. A golf event will be held Monday, May 18 at Omni Resorts Barton Creek Fazio Canyons Course.
According to www.golftosaveourlakes.com, 100% of the proceeds will directed to CTWC’s efforts to save the lakes through the Vision 650 project.
“This annual event is the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts and allows us to work on your behalf to save the lakes and our drinking water,” said CTWC President Jo Karr Tedder. “Our water supply is limited; it’s a precious, irreplaceable natural resource that must be protected for our health and safety, as well as our environmental and economic stability. Keeping a minimum reserve of water in the Highland Lakes is critical to our survival. Last year, thanks to your financial help, we were able to work more closely (and in partnership with) LCRA & TCEQ to institute emergency orders. Had these orders not been put in place, Lakes Buchanan and Travis could have been lowered to the point where cities like Lakeway, Cedar Park, and Pflugerville would have had no source of water. We continued to work on your behalf by providing input and valuable analysis to the Proposed 2014 Plan by encouraging the utilization of current (vs. historical) hydrological data, and stressing the importance of maintaining higher lake levels in times of pending drought.”
Sponsorship opportunities are available for both the gala and the golf event. Gala sponsorships range from $2,000 to $15,000 and include such benefits as VIP tickets, preferential seating for entertainment, and advertising promotion. Golf sponsorships range from $2,500 to $10,000 and include such benefits as celebrity team captains, golf clinics, signage, and course fees. Additional sponsorships, such as for entertainment, beverages, tables, raffles, etc., also are available.
