The evening features an invite only VIP reception for sponsors, silent and live auction, cocktails, seated dinner and concert with Ruthie Foster. Here’s some more information that you might find helpful.

  • The venue is handicap accessible
  • There is plenty of parking
  • Dress is Texas Cocktail Attire
  • Your name will be on a list at the door when you arrive
  • Please allow time for traffic…we understand that heading out Loop 360 at that time of day can be challenging. The Riverbend Centre is located at 4214 N Capital of Texas Hwy (Loop 360); the Fellowship Hall is on the northwest corner of the campus at the intersection with Cedar St. We suggest turning west at the light for Cedar Street and then turn right into the very first entrance. Coming in the main entrance to Riverbend north of Cedar Street? Just follow the signs to the Fellowship Hall, which will be to the left. (We will have signs, balloons and guides to help you.) Here is a link to a map of Riverbend Campus – and a link to a Google Map to Riverbend Centre.
