The 28th Annual Port Aransas Home Tour will be January 30th, featuring 9 beautiful homes. To start the tour come to the Community Center 408 N. Alister and purchase your tickets or turn in already purchased tickets for your wrist band. Before starting the tour, during the tour or after you are through stop by the Community center for a cup of coffee and one of our homemade sweet treats. While there don’t forget to look over our exquisite raffle baskets and silent auctions items. There is something for everyone.
The first raffle item everyone will want to take a look at is a night at the Spurs Saturday March 5th game against the Sacramento Kings in San Antonio, Texas. The Spurs are predicted to be in the NBA playoffs so catch them in action now. The prize includes 4 Theater Box Seat tickets with 2 VIP parking passes access to VIP entrance, private Saddles & Spurs Club and Terrace Restaurant and the Chef Table with complimentary beer, house wine, soft drinks and bottled water. There will only be 200 raffle tickets sold at $20.00/ticket. This opportunity was donated by DRH Construction—Mardee and Lane Hamilton.
Along with the Spurs opportunity, we have other great raffle baskets. Many of you may not know that we have quite a few authors living in Port A. We have a selection of Texas wine and 2 books by local artists for a book party, and a second writer’s basket with tea, a cozy blanket to curl up and several other Port A books to enjoy.
The merchants of Port A were quite generous this year and we have all sorts of dining, hotel stays, pirate hunting, fishing and learning to paint opportunities. If you want to stay at home we have fixings for a delicious Sunday brunch. If you are looking to do some decorating we have home décor items and a circular saw to get your project started. Raffle tickets for baskets, other than the Spurs, will be $1.00/ticket, 6 tickets for 5 dollars and 15 tickets for 10 dollars.
The wrist band is your ticket to enter the homes on the tour, but it also provides you with another opportunity this year. If you are spending a Day in Port A and going to the Community Theater that night to see “Forever Opry” A tribute to the Women of Country Music show your wrist band or your 2016 tour map at the concession stand and you will get a free popcorn and drink.
