BCF reveals plans for Black & Red Ball

Contributed

Buck Murray, president of the Bandera Community Foundation (BCF), announced that the annual Black and Red Ball would take place on Saturday, Feb. 14, at The Farm Country Club, located off FM 2828. Proceeds will benefit the foundation's work with Bandera County nonprofit organizations.
"We are busy making plans for this to be the best-ever Black and Red Ball," he said. "This is a 20-year tradition in Bandera. Everyone has a great time seeing friends, having a wonderful meal and dancing to exceptional 'boot-scooting' music."
As part of the evening, proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Meals on Wheels program at the Silver sage Community Center. Proceeds from the live auction will go to the BCF. Live auction items include a San Antonio Spurs skybox that includes championship basketball, food and refreshments, Murray said.
Mary Ann Robbins will coordinate this year's Black & Red Ball. A five-year member of the BCF Board of Directors, she also served as a marketing professional for almost 30 years before retiring to Bandera in 2007.
"While the event is a fundraiser, it is also a night for sweethearts to be together in a dazzling, fun-filled environment that includes a chance to wear 'Bandera formal' attire, sip cold draft beer, wine coolers and dance to Bobby Flores and the Yellow Rose Band," Robbins said.
Tables of eight sell for $350 and can be reserved by calling Robbins at 830-796-7761. Individual tickets are $50, sold exclusively at Shoe Biz, 301 Main Street. She urged anyone who would like to book a table to call as soon as possible.
Doors will open at 6 pm, with dinner at 7 pm and dancing from 8 pm to 11 pm.
