Tailgate 2017 Tickets are now on sale

August 10, 2017
The countdown is on!  The Chamber’s 10th annual Tailgate Party will be held on Thursday, August 24, and tickets are on sale now.  For the tenth consecutive year, the Chamber will host this exciting and fun tailgate-style event at Silver Wings Ballroom in Brenham. It is the one annual fundraising event for Chamber programs and activities.  Everyone in the community is invited. Get some friends together and plan to be there!

Football fever and spirited rivalries will be happening that night…between fans of Texas Longhorns, Texas A&M, Blinn Bucs, TCU Horned Frogs, UH Cougars, Texas Tech Raiders, Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys, Burton Panthers, Brenham Cubs and more.   
The entire community is invited to attend!
Stop by the Chamber and pick up tickets by August 18. Tickets will not be sold at the door. For the price of $35 per person, you can enjoy a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet from Design II Catering, foamy cold beverages, live music, a fabulous silent auction, bucket drawings, a “big board” auction, and lots of mingling with colleagues and friends.

The auction is always a major highlight of the evening.  Chamber members donate fantastic items!  See below for some highlights.

A huge round of applause goes to all of the generous sponsors who are making this night possible.  Please join us in thanking them, and then come to the TAILGATE 2017 to enjoy the party with them!
