Central Texas Wing Hosts 6th Annual Casino Night
San Marcos, Texas (March 31, 2017) On April 29th, the Commemorative Air Force Central Texas Wing will host its 6th annual Casino Night in their hangar at the San Marcos Regional Airport.
Come out to this fantastic setting of gaming tables surrounded by historic vintage aircraft and enjoy a barbeque dinner, cash bar, door prizes, silent auction, $20,000 in casino money, and a chance to win a History Flight on the B-25 Yellow Rose. Blackjack, Roulette, Texas Hold ‘Em, Poker, Craps, and Slot Machines should keep you entertained. Take a break from the games and visit our historic museum, aviation library, or gift shop.
“Our aircraft are maintained and operated by volunteer members who donate countless hours to the meticulous care of each airplane” said Bill Fier, Wing Leader. “To offset costs we rely on fundraising events like this. All contributions are tax-deductible and 100% goes directly to our educational mission, so generations of Americans will value and realize the contributions of military aviation in assuring our nation’s freedom.”
Tickets are $40 each and available online at the wing’s website, www.centraltexaswing.org, or by contacting Phil Bonasera at (512) 781-9284. Only 400 tickets will be sold. Tickets must be purchased by April 25th to include the dinner.
About the Central Texas Wing
The Central Texas Wing is part of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), an educational non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1957. The CAF has more than 11,000 members and 165 vintage military aircraft located around the nation. These aircraft comprise the world’s largest flying museum, and are operated for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Central Texas Wing was established in March 1974, and at present consists of 150 members who come from both military and civilian backgrounds. All members are volunteers and the Wing is housed in a World War II hangar at the San Marcos Regional Airport restoring and maintaining CAF and private historic aircraft, as well as a World War II museum and military library. Wing aircraft provide history flights, perform flyovers, and attend air shows around the country. A Casino Night, Golf Tournament, and Veteran's Day Dinner Dance are three major fundraisers held annually to support the restoration and maintenance of our historic aircraft. The Wing is open M-W-F-Sat from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for tours to school groups, civic and military organizations, ROTC cadets, scout organizations and the general public from throughout the Central Texas Region. Being involved in local communities is a major goal of the Wing as it has joined four local Chambers of Commerce; San Marcos; Buda; Kyle; and Canyon Lake.
