The American Red Cross Super Ball XI scheduled for this Saturday, January 28, at Safari Texas in Richmond, promises to be the biggest – and best – indoor tailgate party in town! Celebrating their eleventh year, Super Ball XI benefits the American Red Cross Fort Bend Office located in and serving Fort Bend County. This year’s proceeds will support program operations, service delivery/emergency relief to our community and general operating needs.
The event features a tailgate-themed buffet full of football food favorites, a Half-Time Dance with music by The Spiffington’s and a midway with games allowing guests to compete. Midway games include two Basketball Shoot-Outs sponsored by Rotary Club of Richmond, the Football Toss sponsored by Stan and Edie Speer and the Best Buy Raceway sponsored by Best Buy. Finals will be held for the high scorers in each competition and winners of these events will receive basketball goals, a sporting goods gift certificate and a Wii game system.
The American Red Cross Super Ball XI auctions are always a crowd-pleaser, and this year’s live auction features a returning exclusive item courtesy of Legacy Ford. Legacy Ford has donated the use of a new car each month for an entire year to kick off the live auction. Other live auction items include a Sugar Land Skeeters’ package, a Bunco party at Southern Sister Designs, and Deer Valley condo along with various sports and entertainment packages.
The silent auction features over 150 lots along with a special Sky Box VIP area sponsored by Cindy and Brad Reaves. This section contains twelve unique items including a fully stocked tool box, a custom vanity, a Texans’ tailgate party package and unique sports memorabilia.
Leading the Super Ball team to victory for this year are Head Coaches Eileen Akerson, Terri Stuart and Goldie Leinweber. “This year’s event is shaping up to be our best ever,” said Charlie Davis, Executive Director for the American Red Cross Fort Bend Office. “Because of the generous support of our committee members, sponsors and our community, we are looking forward to kicking off the new year with a great evening of football tailgating fun!”
Sponsorships are still available for the event, and they range from $500 to $10,000. Sponsorship opportunities include tickets to the event and on-site recognition at the event.
