Advocates for Special Needs Athletes - 2nd Annual Queue for a Cause
Queue for a Cause
November 14, 2014
Advocates for Special Needs Athletes (ASNA) of TTUHSC is hosting its second annual Queue for a Cause fundraising event in which ticket holders will have a chance to socialize, eat dinner, and bid on silent auction items, live drawing items, and "quarter bid" items. Proceeds raised will go to Refuge Services and Special Olympics of Texas to support special needs athletes. The event will be held on November 14, 2014 at the Caprock Winery in Lubbock, Texas. The participation in the event revolves around the "quarter items" on which you will bid using purchased paddle numbers and pay a quarter to throw your number in for the item. You can win great items for only a quarter! We will have a speaker from the local special need community, a fantastic catered dinner, including a wine paring, and great items on which you can bid and win.
ASNA is an organization dedicated to funding and providing people of all ages with special needs the opportunity to participate in and develop through athletics, competition, and a commitment to health. This event is to raise money for local events including unified sports, the new soccer program, meet in the middle, and leadership development programs for those with special needs.
The doors will open for the event at 6:00 p.m. to allow people the option of wine tasting if they choose (cost is $5 through the winery upon arrival) and also to check in. Please be at the event by 6:20 p.m. if you are not wine tasting in order to register.
