Tuesday, December 10th: Holiday Party and Fundraiser
It is time to celebrate. Please come join us at the Alamo Sierra Club’s biggest event of the year—our holiday fundraising party. This year we will be celebrating among the dazzling lights of the River Walk thanks to our host The Worm Tequila and Mescal Bar.
Enjoy meeting fellow conservation minded locals from our partnerships, a buffet with goodies from many local businesses (respite from bringing a covered pot luck dish this year), full bar options, and new musical entertainment, including, among others, Austin Forrest.
There is great public bus transit and free Tuesday night city parking nearby (closest is at 240 E. Houston St.). We are asking for a modest suggested $10 cover at the door. There will be many desirable, bargain silent auction items available to bid on. If you would like to donate an auctionable item or professional service, please contact Margaret (Peggy) Day. We hope to see all the SA Environmentalists there. Invite your friends, colleagues, and family.
Times, maps and speaker bios are on our Events page.
