Tickets Going Fast for

HCCT Guild’s $10K Cinco de Mayo Fundraiser

Ticket sales are in full swing for the Hill Country Community Theatre Guild’s 3rd annual $10,000 Cinco de Mayo Fiesta set for May 5. The event will take place at the theatre, 4003 FM 2147, Cottonwood Shores (click for map).

Along with a drawing for $10,000 in VISA gift cards, the fiesta features a Mexican themed reception with heavy hors d’oeurves, beer and wine and drawings for 25 other consolation prizes each with a retail value of at least $50.

“We’ve had a tremendous response from the community to this fundraiser in the past and we’re excited to be able to sponsor it again,” said event chair and longtime HCCT supporter Susie Keiser. “It’s a fun evening and it provides a significant benefit for the theatre, which in this economy, needs the support of the entire community more than ever.”

For the event, the Guild offers just 200 tickets priced at $100 each. During the evening, they draw each ticket, awarding a consolation prize to the holder of approximately every 8th ticket drawn. When there are only two tickets left to draw, those two ticket holders are offered a chance to split the $10,000 in gift cards. If they decline, the final ticket is drawn and the holder of the undrawn ticket wins the entire grand prize. The net proceeds raised by sale of the 200 tickets go to the HCCT Guild for projects benefitting the theatre.

Ms. Keiser noted that if a ticket holder wants to bring a guest to the fiesta, they may pay an additional $25 at the door.Tickets are available from HCCT Guild members or by calling Ms. Keiser at 830-693-3505. They may also be purchased by contacting the HCCT Box Office at 830-798-8944.
