Our 2017 Gala will be a night to remember and include a raffle prize trip to South Africa

This year was a year of excitement that brought forth many compelling possibilities to the city of San Antonio.  That is why we are choosing to Celebrate San Antonio at the 2017 Annual Gala, and we promise this will be a night of laughter, memories, and fun. For our 123rd Gala, our Chairman Rad Weaver wanted to pay tribute to the Alamo City with an affair to remember. Gala guests are in for a treat with our exciting venue, GDC Technics Hangar at Port San Antonio, which will be filled with live music, eclectic food stations, and the opportunity for guests to mingle and network with one another during the festivities.

This year’s Gala Raffle prize is an exciting first! The grand prize winner and a guest will travel with the Chamber to beautiful, exotic South Africa March 10 – 19, 2018! This eight day excursion will set out from Johannesburg for a safari in Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s leading game sanctuary that covers more than 7,700 square miles of land between the Crocodile River in the south and the Limpopo in the north. Kruger park is home to more than 140 resident mammal species, including the iconic Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino) making it one of the most collectively diverse parks in Africa. A 4×4 vehicle gives you nearly unlimited photo opportunities to snap pictures of zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, wild dog and vast antelope herds. Then you will explore scenic Cape Town. This once colonial settlement is one of the world’s most picturesque tourist destinations and most beautiful cities. Snug between hilly mountains and pristine white beaches, Cape Town is often called the cosmopolitan hub of Africa. You will also visit Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

Each guest at the Gala will receive one (1) raffle ticket.  Additional tickets may be purchased during the Gala for $25 each.

Join in on the fun as we wrap up yet another successful year at the Chamber!

Sponsorship opportunities are available.  If you are interested in purchasing a table, please visit Celebrate San Antonio: The Annual 2017 Gala’s web page.
